Female Learnership Programme

ERB staff have trained and developed fifteen young black women in-service in various disciplines within the railway signalling business. Twelve of these young women have been permanently employed and it is the intention of ERB Technologies to continue training black female learners in this way. Training for black women at FET colleges and universities forms part of the company’s learnership programme.

Social Development

 

To contribute to South Africa’s future skills pool, ERB supports the education of black learners from school to tertiary level.

 

Supplier Development

 

ERB Technologies have continuously been committed to obtaining unemployed persons from the local community to perform work such as: trenching, cable laying, trench back-fill and installation of signalling wayside equipment under supervision. Due to the complexity of the signalling installations, it is necessary for ERB to employ skilled and semi-skilled labour permanently to provide uninterrupted in-service training.

 

ERB Technologies procure trenching and cable laying materials from local suppliers within the local communities where the site is established.

 

ERB endeavor to maximise expediture with suppliers who have the most optimal combination of technological capability, competitive pricing and high scorecard BBBEE accreditation thus empowering less advantaged suppliers.

Employment Equity

 

ERB recognises the challenges faced by the fledgling democracy in which it operates. It is proud of its achievements in the field of employment equity.
