South Africa’s top management positions are occupied by whites and mostly males, a report launched by the government on Tuesday said.

The Commission for Employment Equity’s 19th annual report showed that in 2018, whites continued to be the dominant group in top management positions, despite being among the lowest economically active population group.

According to the report, 66.5 percent top management positions were occupied by white people.

Whites occupied 69.6 percent of the positions in the private sector. Males occupied 76.5 percent of the positions and females 23.5 percent.

Persons with disabilities constitute 1.3 percent at top management level.

The report is used as a benchmark to help employers in the analysis of their workforce to determine the degree of under-representation of the designated groups in the workforce.

The Commission for Employment Equity Chairperson Tabea Kabinde said there was still an over-representation of white males in top management across the country. There is slow pace in transformation at the top management.

She state that government and social partners should make transformation a shared objective. Enditem
