He challenged staff to be more committed so as to boost productivity, as he announced that there would be a yearly award for overall performance.
Throwing more light on the “GM Awards”, Ake said, “staffers need to work hard to get the GM awards because it will cover every departments and units, even beyond”.
Ake reiterated that the award would serve as a morale booster for workers, saying that “we love all the staff, and we are interested in everybody’s wellbeing, but we are more interested in those who are making it possible for The Tide to come out early”.
Director of Administration of the corporation, Mrs Emi Jameson said the quarterly award was envisaged to cover all departments and units, while underscoring the need for hard work, and discipline.
