Our policies


| Equal opportunities |  
Although Catgraphics is an SMMe, we create an environment of sustainable diversity and offer opportunities for advancement. We recognise that employees of all racial groups have a right to equal opportunity, and our Policy applies whenever we are recruiting, promoting, assessing performance, disciplining, or offering training or other opportunities for advancement.

| Employment equity |
We believe that empowerment should not only take place at a shareholder level. One of the company’s transformation objectives is to ensure diverse representation at all levels of the business and as an organisation, and we ensure we comply with the Employment Equity Act at all times, although Catgraphics is exempt by means of the definition of the Act.

| Human Resources |
Catgraphics believes that providing training and furthering the education of its employees is one of the most powerful mechanisms of assisting in the transformation process. Catgraphics wants to build and retain a team of highly skilled black staff. The company embarks on identifying individual training needs for each staff member by means of its performance appraisal and management system.

| Preferential Procurement |
Catgraphics believes that transformation is a supply chain issue, and that the entire supply chain needs to have a common understanding and buy-in of the transformation imperative. The company has developed a robust preferential procurement process that influences both the purchasing behaviour of the company, as well as the understanding of our suppliers from a transformation perspective.

| Enterprise Development |
As part of our transformation initiative we assist in establishing new businesses within our industry and ensure that they establish a stable base in the South African marketplace, although we find it difficult to invest into other businesses as described in the Code of Good practice 1000 for small businesses.

| Corporate Social Investment |
The company believes that meaningful social investment is more than writing a cheque. We believe that it is about exposing our employees to the emergent reality, which is the future of South Africa, and investing time, materials and money in a way, which becomes empowering and sustainable. Catgraphics has identified education as a means to empower the future generation to help create positive social and economic changes in a disadvantaged community in Soweto.
