In a statutory notice to the ministry of labour, Telkom Kenya has today indicated that it intends to deploy a workforce-restructuring exercise, declaring about 500 employees, redundant.
The move by the local telecommunications firm seeks to enable Telkom to invest more into the growth and sustainability of its business, aligning its cost structure and skill-set with its Strategy.
This requires Telkom to restructure its business, and as a result, this will impact the current and long-term needs of its workforce. This restructuring will enable Telkom to not only invest in its business but more importantly in its people.
Telkom being in a fast-evolving sector is adapting to market dynamics and changing consumer demands, to ensure that it delivers relevant and competitive products and services. This will also ensure that Telkom becomes a stronger player in the market and grows its relationship with its business partners.
