dc.description.abstract The major aims of this study are the following: to analyse the necessity of employee training and development within a specific South African industry; to analyse affirmative action critically; to determine adult basic education and its importance with employee training and development in applying affirmative action; to determine the importance of the Reconstruction and Development Programme and its implementation within a specific South African industry; to provide guidelines to a specific South African industry regarding the implementation of affirmative action through its training and development programme. A theoretical orientation was done with regards to affirmative action, adult basic education, training and development, and the Reconstruction and Development Programme within an institutional context. In the empirical survey, a questionnaire was developed taking into account information gathered from a review of literature and discussed with industry experts in the field of Industrial Relations. The questionnaire was carefully screened and pretested. The organization through which research was conducted is an affiliate of Murray & Roberts, a major cement manufacturer in Lichtenburg, namely Blue Circle Cement Ltd. Co. The company employs 580 employees at their Lichtenburg branch. The questionnaires were distributed to managers at the Lichtenburg branch. There were twenty three respondents and the researcher regarded this as acceptable as at least 40% of managers were absent from the plant on company business. The response was highly favourable as it was only an explorative investigation. en
