Over 100 Vodafone Staff Sacked

Scores of workers of Vodafone Ghana have been asked to go home in a sudden redundancy operation by the telecom company.

Affected staff were informed of the move and given their redundancy packages on Thursday. It is believed close to 100 staff have been affected by the action which is deemed to be part of an ongoing restructuring at the firm.

“The restructuring involves consolidation and alignment of various roles in the organisation. The aim is to improve the various points at which Vodafone touches its customers, streamline the go-to-market approach and position the company to take advantage of new opportunities in the industry,” External Affairs Director of Vodafone Ghana, Mr Gayheart Mensah told State-owned Graphic.

A source within management told Starrfm.com.gh that the redundancy affected staff across the various units of the company.

It is unclear what has triggered the sudden cut in jobs at the telecom giant.
