ABOUT THE PRACTICE GROUP

MISSION


The mission of the group is to harness the combined skills, specialised knowledge, entrepreneurial spirit and ethical conduct of its members to create equal opportunities and to provide clients with a personal, professional and efficient service.

 AFFIRMATIVE ACTION


The Practice Group of Companies supports the principle of Black Economic Empowerment and is committed to a process which is designed to correct the imbalances of the past. The Practice Group (Pty) Ltd applies an Employment Equity Policy of providing equal opportunities to all persons irrespective of race, creed or gender.

The Practice Group is also committed to the Reconstruction and Development Programme of South Africa (RDP) and its Human Resources Development Programme in line with the RDPs chapter on Development of Human Resources. This includes:

  • Alliances with black owned consulting agencies.
  • Affirmative Action and Employment Equity
  • Training, and
  • Social Involvement

The Group’s Resources Development Programme has both a short and longer term focus. In the short term, the Group has implemented an Employment Equity Plan in accordance with the directives of the Department of Labour in terms of the Employment Equity Act. The Group is also a member of PLANCOM, a voluntary association of planners willing to offer pro bono service to disadvantaged communities. In the medium to longer term, the Group awards bursaries to Technicon and University students in Town and Regional Planning. In-house training of employees is provided. The Practice Group pro-actively implements an affirmative action policy when new appointments are considered. The Group has collaborated with Dudla Development Planning and Tshiongolwe Development Planning Consultants to create a seperate majority owned black town planning consultancy known as ADePCo (African Development Planning Consultants). By harnessing the combined skills and experience of the principals of ADePCo, the need of larger corporate and government clients with regard to principal planning advice are addressed.
