In the wake of the increasing market obligations in the electricity distribution market and the yearning for improved performance and employee welfare, the leadership of the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSEAC) today commenced its enlightenment program with the Alpha One Region of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution (PHED) Plc, at the company’s head office in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The Deputy General Secretary, South-South and South-East of the Union, Comrade, Lord Douglas, said the enlightenment became necessary to motivate staff to put in their best efforts in the performance of their functions to sustain the successes being recorded in the company and fend off the financial distress affecting the DisCos across the country.
Lord Douglas commended Dr. Benson Uwheru, MD/CEO of PHED for the tranquil environment he has birthed at PHED that has enabled employees of the company to continue with optimal performance and assured that SSEAC is always available and willing to support the amiable and transformational leader to achieve greater milestones. He averred that the MD/CEO has done so well within the short period in office.
According to Lord Douglas, it will be unfair not to reciprocate managements gesture in times like these when the market obligation is on the rise and management has continued to prove that they will continue to improve the welfare of employees to ensure that every employee at PHED is happy and proud of the company.
He recalled how the union engaged the MD/CEO on welfare issues and he affirmed that staff welfare is a primary concern of the leadership, noting that ‘PHED employees are his most important asset. He noted that the leadership style of Dr. Benson is impeccable, and his magnanimity should not be taken for granted.
The Union leader also revealed that Dr. Benson promised to jettison the horizon or vertical style of promoting staff, noting that he will opt for a formula that will impact on welfare package of employees. He, therefore, urged PHED staff to enjoy this season and reciprocate management gestures by ensuring that collection efficiency continues to improve month on month. He then instituted a Prize Award for the best-performing staff in the region at the end of the month.
