New chief must build morale
Opposition leader Mike Nahan hopes the next chief executive of Southern Ports will help build a healthy workplace after employee bullying claims were levelled at the organisation.
SP was thrown into the spotlight earlier this year after 24 allegations were made to WorkSafe accusing senior staff of harassing and bullying junior employees.
The organisation has been seeking a new chief executive to run its Albany, Bunbury and Esperance ports since former chief Nicolas Fertin resigned in June.
Mr Fertin is not accused of engaging in bullying or harassment.
Dr Nahan said he wanted somebody at the helm who could develop a positive work environment. “Get one who can work with the group, manage it well and drive it efficiently,” he said.
