Skills Development has been identified as a Priority Element under the New B-BBEE Codes of Good practice.

This, along with increased spend and the new EAP (Economically Active Population) targets, requires a business to place a lot more focus on Skills Development to achieve at least the sub-minimum requirement for each category in the element.

Failure to reach the new sub-minimum will result in an automatic drop in one BEE Level irrespective of overall scoring.
