ZESA Faces The Risk Of Skills Flight - Senior Official

ZESA Faces The Risk Of Skills Flight - Senior Official

ZESA Holdings has revealed that it faces the risk of skills flight as employees seek better paying job opportunities elsewhere, even across the country’s borders.

ZESA Holdings deputy chairperson Tsitsi Makova said the parastatal had not been spared the harsh economic climate, where salaries of employees in the public and private sectors were being eroded as the local currency continues to lose value.

Speaking during a ZESA risk management awards ceremony held in the capital on Monday to honour staff that continues to protect and preserve the parastatal’s assets, Makova said:

The current economic climate has negatively affected conditions of service for employees and skills flight is one of the major risks faced by the Zesa group.

Every employee within the Zesa group is critical in ensuring provision of power to the nation.

We as the board and management are cognisant of the fact that the salaries have been eroded and reduced to low values due to the unstable economic conditions and we are looking into ensuring that employees’ conditions of service are improved.

Employees are, therefore, urged to remain patient while the issues are resolved.

Makova added that employees should desist from corrupt activities which seem to be on the increase due to the harsh economic environment.

Recently, ZESA workers gave the notice to embark on industrial action in protest over poor salaries.

The power utility offered its workers a salary increase to avert the strike action as negotiations continued.

The Zesa risk management awards were sponsored by Cell Insurance Group and its Reinsurance partners.
