During the meeting, the General Manager emphasized integrity sighting that some staff are soliciting money from customers and using materials picked from stores for personal purposes. He warned against this and advised those involved to stop such habits before it is too late. It's for this reason that he tasked the inventory officer to always document every material that is requested for and sent out. But before the materials are taken, respective individuals should always sign for them then at the end of the month, have a report generated.

 

The General Manager stated that all operations in territories are responsibilities of team/ territory leaders, such as addressing no water cases, delayed bill delivery, revenue collection and many more. "Therefore you are the accounting officer of your territories," he said.  He as well tasked the Billing Officer, Commercial Officer, Branch Engineer, and Sub Branch Manager to relay their contributions towards growing the business, for which they will be held accountable.

He set a target at 100% as a minimum standard for all branches. He further encouraged the Luzira teams to embrace the fourth edition of Customer Connect which will take place on Friday with treasure hunts of comedy vouchers, fuel vouchers, spa vouchers, lunch and dinner packages and many more.

 

In his closing remarks, the General Manager encouraged staff to work with integrity and appreciate their jobs if they are to grow both the business and also grow in the corporation.
