Postal Affairs Honors 70 Employees
The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications has honored more than 70 employees in different categories for their invaluable services rendered the ministry and the nation at large.
Among the honorees were those hailed for earning degrees in various careers from the University of Liberia, African Methodist Episcopal Zion University College, African Methodist Episcopal University and United Methodist University, respectively as well as Liberia’s Postmaster-General, Dr. Frederick Norkeh, whom the name Daniel was bestowed upon by the employees and gowned for his astute leadership that appears to have increased productivity at the ministry.
Seventeen of the employees were honored for graduating from universities and colleges, while working at the same time.
Deputy Postal Affairs Minister for Administration, J.Levi Demmah, who presented certificates to the honorees, said: I’m always gratified to see people, who have the edge to advance themselves”.
Mr. Demmah said reading makes a man, and once one is read well, it enables his or her thought processes to deliver, noting, “So at this ministry I’m pleased to note that our employees still have the edge to advance themselves.”
He lauded the Human Resource Management of the ministry for organizing such program aimed at motivating employees for the roles they play in keeping Postal Affairs functional. The second batch of honorees comprised long-service employees whose tenures at the ministry range from 10 to 30 years and above.
A total of 18 employees, who fall under this category were certificated by Acting Assistant Postal Affairs Minister for Technical Services, Joe Bando.
Mr. Bando recounted the challenges the honoree faced over the years in the discharge of their respective duties and stressed that honoring them was an outstanding achievement.
The third batch of honorees consisted of 17 employees, who were termed excellent performers. They were certificated by Acting Deputy Minister for Operations, Paul M. Richards.
“One thing that is unique about this program is what we are not seeing. If you look at the program as planned by the organizers, those who have been plucked out did not just come out of the top,” Deputy Minister Richards observed.
Full with elation, representatives of the three categories of honorees hailed authorities of the ministry for recognizing them and reaffirmed their commitment and dedication to their respective functions at the ministry in the interest of the nation.
They praised the administration of Dr. Norkeh for the level of cooperation exhibited since he assumed the ministry’s leadership.
Meanwhile, Postmaster–General Norkeh has cautioned employees of the ministry to work harder in serving the country.
Dr. Norkeh said he was overly excited because he did not expect what the employees has done “This is a hallmark of everyone, who wants to succeed. And I often feel very strongly that employees are the most important asset to any organization,” he added.
As a token of appreciation, Dr. Norkeh revealed that the honorees will receive individual packages.
