A statement signed by the Director, of Corporate Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR), Mr Emeka Oparah informed that restructuring that is focused on aligning the company’s structure with its operating model, also entails a right-sizing that would impact a section of their current workforce.
He stated that in accordance with best practice and standards, a robust plan had been put in place to cushion the effect of the exercise on the impacted employees and ensure that the process was without any hitch.
In his words, “One of the key objectives is to create a high performing organisation, which satisfies the needs of all of our stakeholders, especially our customers, as we step into the next growth phase of our operation.”
