In keeping with its commitment towards professional development of its employees, ensuring that they are recognised and rewarded accordingly, the management of Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) recently promoted 164 staff of the organisation.
This was made known to newsmen by the Head of Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh in Enugu, on Tuesday.
Ezeh also stated that a total of 178 staff of the organisation received step increases, while 1661 had their appointments confirmed. These developments are the result of staff performance in the 2018 performance appraisal exercise.
It is worthy of note that EEDC in 2017 adopted the Performance Management system as a means of measuring and evaluating the performance of its staff, in line with their respective Key Performance Indices (KPIs). With this in place, every staff is objectively assessed by their supervisors at the end of the appraisal period, based on their KPIs.
The Management, in a circular, congratulated the affected staff, encouraging others to redouble their efforts and be part of the next promotion. It went further to reassure them of its commitment to consistently train and retrain staff, and also recognise and reward good performance.
Already, over the weekend, as part of its commitment towards training and capacity building, EEDC sponsored twelve (12) of its staff to India, for training. The two weeks training has staff nominated from different departments within the organisation.
The training is intended to equip participants with increased understanding of the electricity sector and international best practices; which at the end of the day will bring about better operational practice and improved service delivery to its esteemed customers.
In the year 2018, apart from some local training organised for its staff, EEDC sponsored about twenty eight (28) staff on foreign training which held in the United State of America, Egypt, Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire.
Demonstrating its deep and abiding commitment to the professional development of its staff, management equally encouraged staff to take advantage of the career paths and growth opportunities already instituted in the company and unleash their potentials.
