Skills development

Skills development at MMI is seen as key in developing capacity and adding value. We have spent in excess of R67 million on skills development in financial year 2012/2013. This amount does not include the adjusted recognition for gender as was previously included in the 2012 reporting timelines. A significant amount of our spend was directed to the development of black employees. The percentage spent on upskilling black female employees was in excess of 60%.

For more detail on these initiatives, please refer to the MMI website.

Union membership

All employee relations issues are dealt with by the group manager: risk, governance and labour relations within our strategic human resources division, which is headed by the group strategic human resources executive, an executive director of MMI.

All MMI employees have the right to freedom of association to join a trade union. As at 31 March 2014, the South African union membership at MMI was less than 6% – represented by various unions.
