Anglo American Platinum’s transformation programme aims to create a workforce that reflects the diversity of the South African population. In pursuit of this goal, we have been striving to create at all our operations the type of workforce that makes transformation possible and indeed that encourages it.

We endeavour to comply with requirements set out in the revised South African Mining Charter and the Employment Equity Act. At the end of 2016, HDSA’s represented 74% of those in management positions (2015: 62%) and women make up 14.9% of our workforce.

Our employment equity status shows satisfactory progress towards achieving equitable representation of designated groups across all occupational levels and categories of the workforce.
