Staff of Fiji Air­ways are in ju­bi­lant mood now af­ter an in­crease in their take home amount from the com­pany’s prof­its was an­nounced yes­ter­day. At­tor­ney-Gen­eral and Min­is­ter for Civil Avi­a­tion, Aiyaz SayedKhaiyum, has called for cel­e­bra­tions for hard work. The Fiji Air­ways staff share in the record profit for the 2015 fi­nan­cial year. Ratu Bose Ra­voka, 45, from Ver­ata, Ucu­ni­vanua in Tailevu, has been a driver/of­fice as­sis­tant at the na­tional air­line since June 2003. “This sys­tem will just make me give my best and it will up­lift my work,” he said. An­ge­line Lal has been a pub­lic re­la­tions co-or­di­na­tor for events and spon­sor­ships. “I am ex­cited about it and it could not have come a bet­ter time,” she said be­fore fly­ing out of the coun­try for the Sin­ga­pore 7’s. Lau na­tive Jone Waqabaca, an air­craft en­gi­neer since April 2010, said it was a grand thing to earn a bonus. “Our job is guar­an­teed here. There was a time there was a loss and now we are part of the wealthy com­pany and there is no need for me to go to FNFP and with­draw for emer­gency pur­poses,” Mr Waqabaca said. Ase­naca Rabaro from Naduri in Macu­ata, is a cabin crew with the air­line for past 25 years. She was over­whelmed. “I had been work­ing since Air Pa­cific then changed to Fiji Air­ways, ex­pe­ri­enced a lot of changes over the years, even our uni­form and the air­craft,” she said. “This is an en­cour­age­ment to all the em­ploy­ees to work hard for more bless­ings like this.” Isikeli Loku­yara, 30, a Hu­man Re­source co-or­di­na­tor since March 2014, said: “It is a mo­ti­vat­ing fac­tor to an in­di­vid­ual as an em­ployee.

“This helps to align em­ployee in­ter­est with those of share­hold­ers.

“It in­creases staff in­no­va­tion, cus­tomer and staff loy­alty and mo­ti­vates em­ploy­ees to be more pro­duc­tive be­cause em­ployee have some sense of own­er­ship of the com­pany.” Edited by Maraia Vula
