Staff of Promasidor Ghana, a leading producer of food products across the country, are undergoing a two-day training in Accra on Labour-Management Cooperation (LMC) with the aim of enhancing productivity.
The training, facilitated by Gamey and Gamey Group, is to enhance the collaboration between the management and the workers to increase productivity and profit.
It is to help the management and workers’ union to work cooperatively as social partners to increase the market share of the company.
Eighteen participants made up of senior staff union executives, junior staff union executives, administrative and human resource managers, are going through the training that is expected to redefine the industrial relations strategy in the company.
Mr Austin Gamey, Chief Executive Officer of Gamey and Gamey Group, who is leading the facilitation, reminded them of the need for effective information sharing between labour and management that promotes productive workplace harmony.
That, he said was critical in ensuring workplace cooperation and peace, adding that without information sharing helps to avoid negative perception and build trust.
He referred to Section 9(g) of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651) which stipulates that employers keep open the channels of communication with the employees.
Mr Gamey encouraged the management and the union executives to work together to offer a purposeful leadership for the entire workforce.
“The offices of the HR and Union officers are exemplary offices that must provide effective leadership qualities,” he said.
Such partnership, he said would promote a paradigm shift in labour management cooperation in the company for sustained increase in productivity.
