Pearl of Africa hotel Kampala.

Pearl of Africa Hotel is set to sack all its employees during its transition process as the hotel prepares for a new investor, US hotel chain Wyndham in October this year.

The hotel’s human resource manager, Mr Lawrence Kulanga, informed employees on the development in a letter dated September 1, 2018.

“We have identified an operator of international repute and the hotel is in process of transitioning to the management of the operator. The transition is expected to last approximately two months.” part of the letter reads.
The employees’ working terms will be moved from permanent to casual labour during the transitioning process. This means they will be usually hired by the hour or day or for the performance of specific tasks.

“During the transition period, you will be hired as a casual worker under evaluation and you will be paid as necessary.” the letter further reads.

The hotel management also noted that individual employees who accept to become casual workers could be eligible to be re-interviewed by the new operator for the possible job offers.
The staff will be subjected to interviews and those that don’t meet the criteria will lose their jobs.

With the new operator coming in, US based Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Pearl of Africa Hotel will trade as Wyndham Hotel Kampala.

Pearl of Africa Hotel is one of the highest points in Kampala city and has been under development since 2006, was completed in June 2017, and was opened on October 1, 2017. It began operations as Aya Hotel and briefly adopted the Hilton Hotel brand before re-branding to Pearl of Africa Hotel.
