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.
