B&W Instrumentation and Electrical regards our employees as critical for our success, especially as we operate in an industry where skills are scarce. We strive to attract and retain employees of the highest calibre to uphold the company’s performance and sustainability, and in parallel prioritise optimal working conditions and opportunities for development.
Our key focus in human resources are the themes of ‘family values’, transparency and equal opportunity.
B&W believes that every employee has the right to belong to a union and 100 % of the workforce is covered by a collective agreement. B&W falls under the jurisdiction of the South African National Bargaining Council for Electrical Contracting Industries.
Skills Development and Training
B&W is committed to internal advancement of staff, particularly those from previously disadvantaged groups. This is reflected in our ongoing skills development programmes.
To assist in addressing the skills shortage in South Africa, B&W has invested substantially in the training of field labour to increase its skills pool. B&W has its own fully equipped in-house training centre based in Alberton, South Africa, and is an accredited service provider through the South African Construction SETA.
B&W training programmes are in line with SAQA unit standards to advance employee skills and ensure trainees receive an accredited qualification. To determine the appropriate skills development required, B&W provides ongoing on-the-job assessments.
