“This significant milestone is representative of CMC’s continued dedication and ongoing commitment to aligning our operational plans to our transformation objectives. We will continue to proactively support these fundamental objectives, and support our customers and employees in the environment we operate. This is an absolute priority for our business and motivates us to do better.” says CEO, Marisa Trisolino.
Not only does the level 1 B-BBEE status offer tangible benefits to CMC’s customers, but it is a clear demonstration of the ongoing commitment to meaningful transformation in South Africa, and the growth of the economy, all while playing our part in tackling youth employment and skills development to uplift local communities.
“We see this milestone as part of the broader and critically important task of dealing with our country’s inequality. CMC prides itself on its strategic approach to attracting, retaining and developing high performing talent as well as providing career pathways for unemployed graduates and disabled people. This is incorporated in our Skills Development initiatives which include leadership development, mentoring, employee bursaries, learnerships, internships, working student bursaries and participation in the YES program. We are pleased to have been able to make significant investments in all these areas to date and look forward to continuing to do so” concluded Trisolino.
