Engen’s transformation agenda is influenced by business, ethical and legislative imperatives. We are also keenly aware that this is a journey that will require time and patience. Our Black Economic Empowerment Policy states that “We will promote and develop an enabling environment in which Engen will deliver on its transformation strategy”. This policy extends to Engen’s employees, dealers, suppliers, business partners and the wider community. In South Africa, our transformation programme is also governed by the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Act (Act 53 of 2003) and other relevant legislation, as well as the Liquid Fuels Charter and the Mining Charter.
We would like our employees to see value proposition in our fair and equitable employment policies. Business BEE enterprise development and socio-economic initiatives have enhanced Engen’s position as a company of choice.
Effective and meaningful transformation requires immense and focused cultural shift, and Engen’s transformation strategy forms part of an integrated business plan. Since transformation objectives have been incorporated in the Engen Balanced Scorecard they have been expressed and cascaded down and throughout the business, which leads to more effective planning and execution of each B-BBEE element by the organisation.
