Strategic Recruitment Solutions (SRSGY) hosted a two-hour learning session titled Employee Engagement – Guyana Labour Law, on Tuesday, September 22. This session is the first in a series specifically focusing on Employee Engagement and the different facets of the Guyana Labour Law. It was facilitated by Ms. Michelle Baburam, Labour officer, Department of Labour, Ministry of Social Protection.
The session focused on the Termination and Severance Pay Act and the Holiday with Pay Act.
Mrs. Gravesande-Bart, Founder and CEO of SRSGY, noted that she believes “when labour regulations are shared and applied, it can certainly increase efficiency, thereby reducing market failures, leveling the playing field, reducing work-related injuries, improving the income distribution and improve employee engagement.”
She noted that SRSGY takes employee engagement seriously and actively promotes team communication through various mediums such as taking every chance and opportunity to openly and transparently address all issues that arise. She added, “HR is the heart of any organization and facing every issue with heart creates an engaging culture where employees feel welcomed and at home.”
Mrs. Holly Persaud, Corporate Human Resource Manager, said “We are happy to have the opportunity for continued learning through the Ministry of Labour’s facilitation of this initative. It is always imperative for the HR department of any organization to be well equipped to handle all legal obligations to both the employee and employer and it is even more important that companies continue to align themselves with the requisite training to be compliant with what is expected by Law.”
She said SRSGY is “thrilled that our Clients have accepted the invitation to partake in such an exercise with us and look forward to further collaboration in the future to keep Guyana’s employees and employers knowledgeable and engaged.”
