Telecom staff retrenched

9 Sep 2005

Telecom Namibia has cut its workforce by 163 over the last four months, as part of the ‘Voluntary Separation Programme’ announced in May. 221 applications to resign were received, but only 163 were approved, reducing staff numbers from 1,406 to 1,243. The operator said that the scheme will help it to operate more efficiently, streamline the organisation and align the skills base.
