Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company PHED says it has commenced the recruitment exercise for people living with disabilities, in line with the policy for diversity, equity and inclusion.
Managing Director PHED, Dr Benson Uwheru, disclosed this during a recent award night for Electricity workers organised by the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC) PHED branch in Port Harcourt.
Dr Uwheru, who the Chief Peoples Officer PHED represented, Micah Ledee, said the employment of the disabled in the organisation is targeted to close the gap in the policy of diversity, equity and inclusion and give equal opportunities for the physically challenged to thrive in the society.
He also emphasised that PHED is wearing a new face to rewrite the bad image of the company created over the years by previous administrations, noting that the company has commenced the promotion of staff and paid off about forty-six million naira inherited for staff exit entitlement.
“We are putting up other policies, including employing employees with disabilities in the organisation to be able to support the policy for diversity, equity and inclusion
“The policy for employing staff with disabilities has been approved without race, colour or religion. We have commenced recruiting, and we will close the gap,” he said.Follow us on social media
