The management of Airtel and Tigo merger has announced that the new design for an integrated structure has been completed.
With the new structure 49 top jobs under the former Tigo telecom have been scrapped which the new merger says was aimed at avoiding duplication of roles.
Airtel had a structure that was almost identical to Tigo’s and in some places, you had two people on the team. The new structure eliminates any duplication and moves some people to the focus areas that will power the combined business.
“One of the key objectives is to create an agile organization, which satisfies the needs of all of the stakeholders, especially our customers, as we step into the next growth phase of the operation.”
“As a result, 49 positions have been declared redundant,” a statement released Monday evening said.
Management says that all impacted employees will be compensated in line with prevailing laws and company policy.
“Each impacted employee will in addition to their legal dues receive 2 months’ gross salary, 3 months extended medical cover, and 3 months free air-time entitlement,” the statement further reads in part.
Under the new streamlined operations, the merger says that harmonization of Products and Services, Improving Network Experience and realization of synergies will ensure swift accrual of the merger’s benefits to all stakeholders.
