Avic excites State
GOVERNMENT says it is impressed with skills and experience that Avic International Project Engineering Company has imparted in its Zambians employees.
Labour Commissioner Chanda Kaziya says the stance the company has taken to empower its local staff with permanent skills was encouraging. Mr Kaziya was speaking on the sidelines of Avic’s local staff professional skills competition, which was aimed at improving the employees’ zeal under the Lusaka 400 Urban Road Upgrading Project’s second phase. The contest was further aimed at encouraging the workers to improve their professional working skills and enhancing relations “This programme is really encouraging for us and from the Ministry of Labour we now know that we have skills and these skills are being upgraded. This topnotch assessment is a good one and we want this to be encouraged. “This should be decentralised to provincial level through assessment of people in the other provinces. It is a good one because you cannot get experience from books but you have to go through it. “It is good to see our people in action and this is the right way to go because people can show that they are able to do it and we can rely on them,” Mr Kaziya said. He said the skills and experience that Avic employees have attained should be reflected in their remuneration.
