The Fiji National Provident Fund says its  Talanoa initiative has proved to be a hit with the people.
The Talanoa sessions allows members to discuss any FNPF issue with its senior management including Chief Executive Mr Aisake Taito.
Mr Taito said the objective of the Talanoa was to enhance member’s understanding of FNPF through a free-flow of information exchange in an informal setting.
“The Talanoa is organised basically to answer queries from members and allay doubts or concerns by giving them a platform to raise these so we can respond directly,” Mr Taito said.
“We have found that members are more comfortable to ask questions and air their views openly in such gatherings, making it a more effective approach especially for our grassroot members who prefer not to speak out during our public information sessions such as the Member Forum,” Mr Taito said.
“They too have opinions and enquiries and we would like to hear from them as well.”
He said it was important that the Fund receives holistic feedback from its members and pensioners and not just from those who are outspoken during formal information sessions.
In the last few months, FNPF has held several sessions in the West and Central Divisions. Recently two sessions were held in the North to coincide with the Fund’s Expo and Member Forums.
