Workers assured of job security

The management of NIPCO Plc, one of Nigeria’s major downstream companies, has said the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) investments in 2019 will be  increased and assured employees of job security despite challenges in 2018.

NIPCO’s Managing Director Sanjay Teotia, stated this in his New Year message to  members of staff. He maintained that the company will “continue to create opportunities for more vibrant and experienced personnel that will achieve efficient workforce to guarantee peerless service delivery.”

He said: “Fourteen years of operations in an industry that is anything but tempestuous is a great achievement worthy of applause. I have no illusion that there is still a lot to be achieved as the company climbs the ladder to the very top.”

It is instructive to note that in spite of the “daunting challenges in the hydrocarbon industry, the organisation has ensured the security of staff employment even as we strive to continually improve on your wellbeing.

“My management will also continue to focus not only on productivity and a healthy bottom-line but also to staying relevant in the industry.I wish to assure that the company’s Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) initiatives would be stepped up .The initiatives underscore the fact that we care for host communities and not just the bottom line.

In a review of his administration, Teotia said: “Since my assumption of duty as the helmsman in January 2017, I am particularly happy of the crop of employees and other stakeholders that I have worked with.

“As employees of the company, you remain the backbone of the organisation pitched against the background that a company stands and works efficiently proportionate to the output of its employees.

“NIPCO’s performance during the year is a testimony to the growing faith in me and the entire management team, even as I wish to intimate you that your contribution is pivotal to the company’s success.

“You have demonstrated- individually and collectively – hard work, perseverance and utmost dedication and of which I am proud of.
