Premier Recruitment Limited, which is part of the Ruparelia Group of companies launched a sensitization campaign about labor externalization last week which was hugely received and embraced by the people in western Uganda.
The tour which kicked off last Thursday with a staff induction session at Mbarara regional office along kakoba round about and ran throughout the entire weekend attracted huge numbers from both the leadership and members of the public in the areas of Bushenyi, Sheema, Kazo and Kashongi-Kiruhura districts where the sensitization workshops took place.
While speaking at the sensitization workshop that took place at Tuuza Motel last Friday, Bushenyi LCV Chairman Jaffar Basajja Balaba thanked the management of Premier recruitment Ltd for introducing grass root sensitization workshops aimed at promoting transparency in the Labour externalization sector and encouraged the natives of Bushenyi to embrace Premier recruitment in the area and register for Jobs since he was 100% sure that after a long wait ,they had got a reliable company to deal with concerning recruitment for jobs abroad being that it’s a subsidiary of Rupaleria group of companies.
‘’I know Sudhir Ruparelia has many businesses and many business dealings with government so we have trust in him that his company cannot be like the ones you have always complained about that got issues to do with trust”, He said before advising the team from Premier recruitment to always take records of people from Bushenyi deployed in the Arab countries and share them with district authorities under district Labour office so that they can track them for monitoring and ensure they are investing the money they earn from overseas employment opportunities.
The Bushenyi District Labour officer Loyce Namara sensitized bushenyi people about their Labour rights especially about employment leave, insurance and compensation in the case where an employee may get sick or loose life caused by work.
She thanked the management of Premier Recruitment Ltd for being open and transparent to the extent of sensitizing the public about the procedures, processes and costs involved when someone is seeking for employment abroad. Adding to this, many companies don’t reveal much of this information because some of them use such loopholes to defraud unsuspecting ignorant candidates and they end up losing lots of their money.
The workshop whose organizers highly observed COVID19 SOPS started at 9:00am to 2:00pm before the team rushed for another evening session in Sheema district to meet Prof.Elijah Mushemeza’s voters was attended by over 200 people and graced by all district leadership who included Deputy Resident district commissioner ,District internal Security Officer ,District Police Commander and many more.
