Every year, Post Fiji organ­ises the Post Managers Con­ference where they discuss ways to improve the performance and achieving revenue targets in all post offices across Fiji.

Managers and representatives from all the 58 post shops around the country attended the three-day event at Metro Events Centre in Suva from June 8 to 10.

Post Fiji chief executive officer, Anirudha Bansod said, Post Fiji was always catering to the commu­nity through its services.

“Our main revenue has gone down; however, that has not pushed us on the back foot; instead, we have diversified our business,” he said.

“This conference also gives a lot of input to our Post managers on how Post Fiji is diversifying from the traditional model business to new business model system.

Mr Bansod appreciated the work of Post managers during the COV­ID-19 pandemic lockdown.

“When the situation was really tough and challenging our Post managers were opening the doors of their Post Shop without any fear,” he said.

“This is where we can see how committed they are in serving the people of Fiji.

“We being the essential services, we have ensured that the commu­nity get our postal services and at the same time we also supplied a lot of groceries to the retail cus­tomers so that they don’t feel short of the stock.

“Most NGO’s rely on Post Fiji to get the supply of groceries and stationeries and also getting their deliveries done.”

About Awards

Post managers were recognised on various categories during their awards night on Thursday.

“In 2021 we didn’t have the confer­ence due to COVID-19 pandemic as such till date 3 awards night has been held,” Mr Bansod said.

Nadi Airport Post Office manager international mail exchange, Jope Vukice, received three awards in­cluding; Top Revenue Earner, Top Net Profit and 1st prize for the emerging post offices overall.

This was no surprise because he believed that his team had per­formed exceptionally well.

“There are 21 of us and the chal­lenges we face, we deal with it to­gether, as a team,” he said.

“The worst challenge was during the COVID-19 lockdown. The busi­ness dropped and we had to send some staff home.

“Some had their contracts termi­nated and most of them resigned. We never lost hope, but kept thriv­ing.”

Mr Vukice said he always encour­aged his staff to perform the tasks even despite the hardships.

“The objective is to motivate and energise these people so that they perform better,” he added.

“Post Fiji is known for delivering services. We are focused on the 2 P’s which is Productivity and Per­formance. We are trying to change the culture and mind set of our staff so that they can keep giving the best possible services to the community.”
