Workers should be given as much chances as possible before trying to make them redundant, the Fiji Human Resources Institute (FHRI) president says.

Speaking during the 2019 BSP Life Fiji Human Resources Institute Conference at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa, Kameli Batiweti said where he once worked he gave as much as five chances to an employee before letting him go.

“The process of redundancy is a business transformation,” he said.

“Employers must pay attention to the provisions of a collective agreement”

Mr Batiweti earlier said that he “loved working with people and when you do it from your heart it will touch other people’s heart.

“Do not try and put it on – it is fake then.”
