SOCIAL POLICY DETAILS
Recruitment of Nigerian Labour

The company by its mission statement is dedicated to the utilization of local expertise as much as possible, in executing its project. This is borne out of its conviction that there exists a huge pool of expertise locally awaiting development and use. There is therefore a structured program of motivating and encouraging employees to develop and acquire experience in the company.

The company emphasizes in-house training program for various staff, it also sponsors staff for seminars and workshops relevant to the company's objective. Recently, the company initiated contact with Industrial Training Fund (ITF) so as to ensure that its human capacity Development program is ITF accredited.

We have concluded discussions with a representative of the International Labour Organization in Geneva, to aid us in our training program, particularly as other indigenous companies in the industry have expressed their willingness to join our initiative. This will ultimately be of greater benefit to communities where our operations are high. Disputes are mainly resolved using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Mechanism. These include Negotiation, Medication, Conciliation and other methods that ensure a win-win outcome.

Disciplinary measures commence with warnings or queries, which may lead to layoffs in extreme circumstances. However, affected staff are afforded ample opportunity to defend themselves whilst as a matter of policy, any disciplinary action is limited to the scope provided by the terms of employment. We maintain workmen's compensation insurance cover for our staff, which is renewed annually. We also engage Nigeria students on Industrial Training and Youth Corps Program.

The company has a policy of sustaining friendly relationship with its host community. This is achieved by:

  1. Employing local labour as much as possible
  2. Awarding petty supply contracts to the locals
  3. Equipping local labour with craft skills through monitoring on project sites
Thus local boys are attached to artisans on site to understudy and thereby develop competence in the trade.
