According to the Commission for Employment Equity’s yearly report, white males are still holding most of the top management positions in corporate South Africa.

This means that transformation is going worryingly slow in South Africa.

eNCA reported that the Commission for Employment Equity’s report showed that more than 67% of top management positions are held by white people.

Top management positions held by black people accounted for only 14%.

The report also revealed that black people occupy more than 83% of unskilled level positions.

Briefly.co.za learned that although these numbers show a great difference, there has been a 20% decline in white management.

However, things do not look good. These numbers clearly show a seriously slow rate of transformation in South Africa.

There is one silver lining though - the report also showed that the amount of women in senior level management positions has gone up by more than 18%.
