Drastic measures are needed to deal with the slow pace of reform at top management

Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant says drastic measures are needed to deal with the slow pace of reform at top management.

The Commission of Employment Equity reports that whites still occupy close on 74% of top management positions in the country.

This is despite the fact that the population group make up only 12% of economically active people.

Blacks form almost three-quarters of economically active South Africans, but less than 13% of them are represented in top management.

Less than 7% of top managers are Indian, while only 4.5% are Coloured.

Trade union Solidarity’s Dirk Hermann, however, describes the commission’s figures as unreliable.
