Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:40pm On Jan 17

What has the length of my stay in the bank got to do with the false claims they've made


False claims that? They are restructuring their workforce? - I hate to break it to you darling, they did restructure their workforce and you didn't make the cut.

30 Days after termination - Biko did you include the days of no-work? After all you all claim extra leave days when your leave falls on/with a public holiday.

1 Year Basic? - Look at your offer letter and calculate your Basic and get back to us.

1 year HMO for you and your family? - You tell us....

Nigerian way of thinking. Well, it's your choice to reason that way. Good luck to you all.

How is it my choice to reason that way? I am only pointing out the same point you pointed out.... After all are we not all pointers? lool grin grin grin
Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:24pm On Jan 17

It is called choice. Not everyone must or can rise up the career ladder. If they are satisfied where they are, how is that anyone's problem?

Same way they made a decision, the decision makers also made a decision... so why is that now our problem? after all the decision makers are satisfied....
Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:18pm On Jan 17

That's not the point. There is a reason we have retirement age, as long as a person is still under that age there is no reason for them to be "pushed out". It's just a wrong mentality. That a person is getting older does not mean their ability to contribute is declining. What is wrong is wrong abeg. If the bank wants to pay them off aka redundancy, then they should be transparent and say so.

I agree with you but, why would you stay in one post & one position for 15years!! Na your Papa get the Bank? Moreso, they didnt get the knowledge outta the blue, it was passed to them by an older generation whom left to pave way for them to also grow as the younger generation. so why are they now building house ontop seat that can be taken at any point in time?
Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:11pm On Jan 17

Bro/sis this is a blatant lie...
More so, the compensation has only been on paper, no monetary value yet. According to the termination letter all entitlements were supposed to be paid within 30 days of executing the letter ( from 16th December) but till date no show. Besides the compensation is meagre as management trainees got a little above 500k while executive trainees got 700k plus.
Lastly a lot of junior staff were affected without pending disciplinary issues.

My Chairman... How many years you don use for the Bank?

Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:06pm On Jan 17

How does this justify anything?

It seems you are an insider hence the reason you can be quoting percentages. All I will say is what goes around comes around.

I wish it had to do with me being an inside staff, How do you expect the junior staff to grow and have career progression when a senior staff has been on the same seat for over ten years and they have refused to resign? Common lets be honest with ourselves here.

Push out the Older ones, so the younger ones can grow... simple!!
Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 10:21pm On Jan 17
Let me weigh into this Heritage Bank news with authentic information. I think one of the major issues that Heritage Bank has had in the past is the lack of communication when bad press begins to start, but i like this Fela Ibidapo administration, more grease to his elbows....

Now to the matter at hand, Heritage Bank laid off staff and this lay off was done late last year. all the legacy Heritage Bank senior staff and close to retirement age staff of the acquired Enterprise Bank were asked to go and their compensation started from 1YEAR BASIC SALARY (WITHOUT TAX), 1YEAR HMO COVERED PLAN FOR THE AFFECTED STAFF AND THIER FAMILIES, writing off of the existing staff loans just to name a few.

Majority of the affected staff especially those from the Acquired Enterprise Bank staff had at most 1year till retirement and 98% had trained their kids through school with most of them working in good organizations, and only a few junior staff were affected and these staff had existing disciplinary cases against them.

Heritage Bank Plc says it is true that it is restructuring its workforce, but it is also “adequately compensating” affected members of staff.

The bank, which sacked 400 members of staff in December 2016, said this was done “as part of efforts geared towards greater efficiency and resource optimization, in line with its growth and industry innovative agenda”.

In a statement by signed by Fela Ibidapo, its spokesperson, the bank said: “The restructuring processes was to up scale the institution’s activities in the strategic sectors of the economy as well as concentrating on and deploying its expertise and competences to specific business areas where it enjoys comparative business advantage.”

It hinted that the recent restructuring came after it reviewed senior staff bench strength and industry standards, and realigned certain roles bank-wide.

It also said it elevated some members of its workforce with higher responsibilities, which is in line with its ongoing determination to re-position.

“The vibrant workforce will enable the bank achieve its vision of being the Nigerian most innovative banking of choice in service delivery, superior returns to its various stakeholders and as well contribute to the growth of the nation’s economy,” Heritabe Bank said.

“This position is buttressed by the fact that the bank is well-known for supporting small businesses, which is another way of bringing as many small businesses as possible together in a bid to add value to MSME sector of the economy.”

It said it had “deliberately focused on the SME segment in a bid to create a fresh set of vibrant entrepreneurs that will create jobs and distribute wealth in the Nigerian economy because of recent statistics, which indicate high unemployment among the youths that make up a large percentage of the population”.

One of its initiatives in the MSME sector is its partnership with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) under the N3billion CBN Youth Innovative Entrepreneurship Development Programme (YIEDP), which is targeted at youth, particularly current National Youth Service Corps members and those within five years of post-service exit.

The bank also launched a N500 million Young Entrepreneurs and Students (YES) Grant in Lagos. The initiative, which is in partnership with the Nigerian Youth Professional Forum (NYPF), will “support students and young entrepreneurs toward socio-economic freedom”.

Celebrities / Wizkid To Return To EME by AmeboGist: 6:54pm On Mar 25, 2013
If everything goes according to plan, Wizkid will soon be returning to his former music label, EME Music Group, this is according to a reliable industry source. The source revealed to me exclusively that Wizkid and EME bosses have been going back and forth for the last couple of weeks through their lawyers trying to agree on new terms of them working together again.
"Wizkid leaving EME was just his way of pushing the bosses at the label to take him seriously and increase his earning percentage. When he joined EME he wasn't a star but then he became a mega star and was making a lot of money for the label and they still didn't increase his earning percentage so he took a walk. Now they are working on a new contract that will favour Wizkid." The source said
I hear in the new contract being drafted, EME will not take a dime from Wizkid's international deals. When they start working together again, remember you read it here first!

Celebrities / Tiwa Savage Signs Major Endorsement Deal With Pepsi Nigeria by AmeboGist: 11:10pm On May 06, 2012
Gist reaching us from our fellow AmeboGisters is that our very own Miss Kele Kele Love has just recently snagged herself a multimillion Naira deal with Pepsi Nigeria. It can be recalled that Tiwa Savage was one of the host of the just concluded Nigerian Idol, in which Pepsi Nigeria were a major sponsor. It was said that while her hosting gig was going on in-front of the cameras, Miss Tiwa and her management team were hashing out a multimillion naira deal with Pepsi behind the scene. This deal would see Pepsi cover all of Miss Savage's events in Nigeria from her expected album launch, to a nation-wide tour that is expected later this year. Seems Miss Kele Kele Love really has no time for Kele Kele change. She is doing it Big this year. It is expected that a formal announcement would be made in a few days time.
