Guoji Clears Air Over Staff Allegations

The Human Resource Manager, Guoji Investment Company Limited, Tommy Sam in an interview at his office at former National workshop, Cline town on Tuesday, 10th April, 2018 referred to the said allegations by staff of the above mentioned company as baseless and unfounded.

He pointed out that staff of the company are discharging their specific duties as assigned, as no staff is doing anything outside their mandate as alleged.

The HR person also debunked allegations of the payment of a labor officer attached to the company monthly salary pointing out that the company do not have any labor officer attached to the company as different labor inspectors usually  boomed in for  on the spot visit without the knowledge of the  administration.

Tommy Sam furthered  that due to the unfavorable business condition the company is currently facing; the company has terminated the services of some of its staff through the procedures prescribed by the labor laws.

The HR person also added that those who were terminated were also given the opportunity  for  a new contract of six months durable that will be in line with the country’s minimum wage for which some have appended their signatures.

As it stands, the company is repositioning itself from importing and selling to production and selling as the company is going to embark on four products for a start which will therefore reduce the work load drastically.

He continued that the termination does not affect all sectors but the Marketing and Administration Departments with specific reference to those workers that were not performing, noting that even before the advent of the Ebola Virus Disease, the company had been spending above their overhead cost just to ensure that they manage the situation.

He therefore called on the general public to be patient with them simply because there is no perfection in humanity and also called on the public to remember that the former national workshop was a dumping ground for garbage’s and other unwanted items before the advent of Guoji Investment  Company Limited in 2003.

He disclosed that in a not too distant future, the company will kick start its rebranding process to advertise their new products.
