This should be used as a rock bed to building employer-employee relations. Robust employee relationship strategies and good wellness programs will usher in the spirit of collegiality. It is therefore the role of employee relations & wellness to ensure that these strategies and programs are put in place in order to support the vision, mission and the values of the Organization. The following are areas of strength.
1. Solid foundation and extensive understanding of Labour law.
2. Employee relationship management at NEC level down to shop floor.
