CCTV is committed to the Consumer Protection Act, which protects our clients. We also have a strong code of ethics for our employees. We have retained the services of a professional company, to ensure that all our policies and procedures are fair to all, and thereby not encumbering on any individual within the company, whether, it pertains to contracts, labour or terms and conditions of sale. These are audited on a regular basis to accommodate any changes that may occur. By enforcing good ethics, sound business practice is the natural progression.

CCTV Security Surveillance Gauteng (Pty) Ltd has been verified and holds a Level 2 scorecard. Through a SANAS accredited agency. As well as being a value adding supplier
In the true sense of empowerment CCTV Security Surveillance Gauteng (Pty) Ltd. is committed to improving their rating on an ongoing basis. As per our Equities and Skills Plans submitted to the DTI, we strive to improve in the areas of skills development, ownership and management. This affords all our previously disadvantaged employees to uplift themselves and gain experience which will forever stand them in good stead.
Skills development is ongoing within the company. Training programs are in place to ensure that the technicians are kept up to date with the latest technology. Courses are offered on a regular basis and all employees are encouraged to attend. Where necessary we obtain external training for our staff. We are proud of our trainees who qualified in access control with an average of 85% overall. Our technicians on Fire Training all achieved over 95%. Management programs are in place to improve the performance of all decision makers within the company. Internal, performance improvement programs are in place in all departments to achieve optimum efficiency. The internal programs are all overseen by senior management.
When looking at direct ownership, the policy of CCTV is that, since the responsibility of having ownership in a company does not end at merely owning shares in the business, there are responsibilities coupled to the privilege of owning shares. We also expect our shareholders to take an active role in the business and to understand the running of a business, where necessary we pass these skills on to employees with an interest in share ownership. We have always made sure that all shareholders are aware and understand these responsibilities prior to taking acquisition of shares.
This in turn, does take time, however, this method has proved to work as a strong foundation for the company which in turn leads to the sustainability of the business. CCTV has a reputation of retaining long term staff compliment, and feel that our healthy relationship with our staff, our current 5 year plan will be achieved.
The demographics of our company reflects the encouragement that we are affording staff in that we currently have 17 previously disadvantaged individuals, in junior management or supervisory positions. This would be a percentage of 52.8% of the total of that demographic. Our total employment equity status as per our last verification report stands at 54.9%.Our target for the next period is 60%.
Procurement values would also reflect an improvement in the coming verification period, this mainly being due to the fact that most suppliers now have obtained their verified scorecards. Due to the nature of our business, we are limited as where to obtain our products as we need to maintain a standard to which our clients are accustomed.
As regards our social economic development plan, this is already in place. We have been involved in providing services to the Impumelelo Self Help Centre for Quadriplegics, in Springs, as well as services and contributions to Little Eden a home for the mentally challenged, based in both Edenvale and the Home in Bapsfontein.
Various other organisations have also been taken into consideration over the last year. CCTV Supports “Sports for All” as our Enterprise Development contribution.
Therefore, taking the above into consideration and the current verification reports, it is obvious that the rating of the company will improve over the next period.
This being dependant on resources and the financial state of the country during that course of time, and by such would determine to what extent that improvement would be.
