The mobile telecommunication giant, MTN has said that its greatest asset remains the people, with each individual’s knowledge, experience and ideas contributing to its continued growth and improvement.
As such, it said that ensuring a healthy and highly motivated workforce remains its priority as a diverse community of committed change agents, brought together in pursuit of a common goal – driving growth and transformation by sharing our technology.
It is with this in mind that MTN Nigeria has implemented a Voluntary Severance Scheme designed to balance individual employee needs with business exigencies. The program was designed drawing on feedback from employees and following consultation with elected employee representatives.
“It provides a financial incentive and opportunity for employees who have worked with MTN for over 5 years to pursue other career interests and personal ambitions full-time, while increasing opportunities for professionals with a fresh perspective wishing to join the MTN family.
“Its successful conclusion last week makes it possible for MTN to tailor the competence and experience base of its workforce to meet technology shifts and future business needs.
“MTN is unrelentingly committed to Nigeria, and continues to execute its strategy of attracting, developing and retaining the best Nigerian talent.
“This is in line with the ongoing business transformation to drive sustained growth and thereby facilitate MTN’s continued role as a partner for progress and socio-economic development in Nigeria.
The management of MTN appreciates the contributions of former colleagues and wishes them well in their future endeavours. Our focus at this time is securing the well-being of employees as we work together to forge the future, and deliver exceptional quality to our customers,” it said in a statement following the exit of some of its staff last week.
