The management of AirtelTigo, the merged telecom company, has assured workers of fairness in the structuring of the company.
According to Ms. Roshi Motman, Chief Executive Officer of AirtelTigo, there would be transparency and fairness in all decisions and activities that affect the staff in the ongoing restructuring exercise.
The company, she said, was executing a rigorous recruitment process with support from a professional recruitment agency to ensure that staff selection is based on merit, adding that issues relating to redundancy packages will be addressed “in a fair, transparent and expeditious manner.”
Ms Motman gave the assurance when the executive of the Network of Communications Reporters (NCR) called on the new management team of the company in Accra.
“We have great talents in both Airtel and Tigo, and their passion, commitment, and expertise have made the company what it is today. Our employees are central to our vision, values and they are our greatest assets,” she said.
The fate of many of the workers of two merged companies remains unknown as the management is currently undertaking a staff reassessment exercise for down-sizing and right-sizing.
After the merger in November last year, the staff were directed to re-apply for their jobs for the re-assessment.
The merger resulted in AirtelTigo becoming the second-largest mobile operator in the Ghana with over 10 million subscribers.
