IR-Services is a South African, privately owned, Black Economically Empowered company.
The company acknowledges that we are all responsible for the development of our rainbow nation through the advancement of Historically Disadvantaged Individuals (HDI), communities and companies. In acknowledging its responsibility towards redressing the imbalances of the past the company has adopted a four-point strategy, of which each point combines the key elements of Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment, Skills Transfer and Affirmative Action.
The company recognises that as a result of apartheid and other discriminatory laws and practices, there are disparities in employment, occupation and income within the national labour market and business environment.
Ultimately IR-Services shares the view that black economic empowerment should be seen as an integrated and coherent socio-economic process that directly contributes to the economic transformation of South Africa and will bring about significant increases in the numbers of black people that manage, own and control the country's economy.
Our primary asset is our employees and we acknowledge their role as stakeholders in our business through our values. In this regard we recognise that:
