Recognition of their hard work will encourage staff to be more efficient by going the extra yard in their duties.

Sailosi Mua, 54, said this after the announcement of the 2017 Energy Fiji Limited Performance pay yesterday.

Mr Mua has been working with the then Fiji Electricity Authority now known as EFL since 1990 as a messenger boy.

Now he is a cable joiner and will retire next year after 28 years of work.

“I am very happy about this performance pay, it is very satisfactory,” he said.

Announcing the Performance Pay was the Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

It was a total of $1.9million that will be distributed among 792 staff members accordingly, based on their individual performance assessments.

“None of this would have been achieved without your individual input,” he said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said that the whole idea was to have a collaborative effort by staff members, the management and the board.

He highlighted the importance of adapting to the changes in technologies and also understanding the business you are in.

“You need to produce more, you need to have a stable infrastructure to be able to produce more electricity,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“What are your sources of energy, where will you get it from, are you putting in enough resources into adopting the technology.”

In running modern businesses, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum suggested EFL to have a redundancy line that runs from Nadarivatu into Suva and into Vuda so if one line goes out, the other one should be able to pick on it.

“We need everybody’s collaborative effort,” he said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum added that if there was a high level of collaboration within an organisation, there would be a high level of reward, sustainable business process is maintained that would ensure better rewards and good career paths.

EFL chairman Daksesh Patel thanked his team for their hard work and rated them the A-Team.
