NIPCO sees opportunities amid 2019 challenges
Downstream oil company, NIPCO Plc, has said despite the challenges currently plaguing the industry, it is optimistic that this year will open new vistas of business opportunities.
The firm also unveiled plans to surge investments for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in 2019, as it celebrated achievements on securing jobs for all its employees despite the upheavals of 2018.
The Managing Director of the company, Sanjay Teotia, who said this in his New Year message to staff, maintained that NIPCO would “continue to create opportunities for more vibrant and experienced personnel towards achieving efficient workforce to guarantee peerless service delivery.”
He said: “Fourteen years of operations in an industry that is anything but tempestuous is a great achievement worthy of applause. I have no illusion that there is still a lot to be achieved as the company climbs the ladder to the very top.”
It is instructive to note, according to Teotia, that in spite of the “daunting challenges in the hydrocarbon industry, the organisation has ensured the security of staff employment even as we strive to continually improve on your wellbeing.”
Promising his company’s decision to create opportunities for more vibrant and experienced personnel towards achieving efficient workforce to guarantee peerless service delivery, the NIPCO’s helmsman said the management would also continue to focus not only on productivity and a healthy bottom line but also on staying relevant in the industry.
Teotia added: “I wish to assure that the company’s CSR initiatives would be stepped up .The initiatives underscore the fact that we care for host communities and not just the bottom line.
“Since my assumption of duty as the helmsman in January 2017, I am particularly happy of the crop of employees and other stakeholders that I have worked with.
“As employees of the company, you remain the backbone of the organisation pitched against the background that a company stands and works efficiently proportionate to the output of its employees.
“Nipco’s performance during the year is a testimony to the growing faith in me and the entire management team, even as I wish to intimate our employees that their contribution is pivotal to the company’s success.”
He said the company’s workforce had demonstrated – individually and collectively – hard work, perseverance and utmost dedication.
The NIPCO boss noted: “These attributes have, no doubt, contributed immensely to the organization’s positive performance over the years. I want to assure you that the company will continue to strive to ensure up-to-date manpower training across board, with a view to making the organisation a top ranking company to work in the hydrocarbon industry.
“I have no illusion that there is still a lot to be achieved as the company climbs the ladder to the very top. Indeed, I see 2019 as a year paved with many successes and great accomplishments for the company.”
