Caroline Lusuli, Admin & HR. Manager Promasidor Kenya
What does your work entail?
I'm involved in the strategic and comprehensive approach of managing employees, the working environment and work culture at Promasidor Kenya. My work entails dealing with issues related to employees, such as recruitment, training, compensation, motivation, performance management, safety, wellness, communication, organizational development and administration.
Highlights of 2013?
There are three significant initiatives. First is that we have operated from two sites for the last ten years. In 2013 we merged our operations, a task that proved to be very challenging. Second, we have focused on investing in employee training and development with the aim of making effective and efficient use of employees, increasing morale, job satisfaction as well as higher skill levels. We undertook training of employees in the following areas - Project Management; Syspro Training; Occupational Safety and Health training; and Customer Service & Leadership training. Third, we initiated a company leadership team that meets periodically to develop plans and tactics that set direction, drive results and focus energy on Must-wins.
Moving sites from two premises into an altogether different location was pretty challenging. However, having a project team to handle all arising matters ensured seamless relocation and settlement. I am pleased to say that through this consolidation we are realizing efficient and cost effective staff reorganization brought about by combining the two sites into one while still motivating the staff.
What are you looking forward to in 2014?
In 2014 my plan is to continue to empower employees to do what is best for Promasidor Kenya Ltd. My office will be keen on aligning employee aspirations to the business strategy. In summary I will be involved in enabling our employees to contribute effectively and productively to the overall company direction and the accomplishment of our 2014 goals and objectives.
