Top management positions in South Africa are still mainly filled by white people, online newspaper Sowetan writes. According to a survey by the Employment Equity Commission, nearly 73% of these jobs were taken by white people, down from 81.5% in 2002. The number of black people filling such top roles has grown by only +2% to 12.3% within the ten-year span.
“The two per cent increase in black people occupying top management positions says that either we don't take those [employment equity] plans seriously, or we never took the act seriously. It is not acceptable,” said commission chairman, Dr Loyiso Mzisi Mbabane.
