The grounds of the Auditing Commission were a scene of jubilation when employees took home two bags of 25kg rice each for the Christmas celebration. That indeed shows that employees at the General Auditing Commission have for the first time received smiles on their faces, as they experience the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The GAC Management headed by Auditor General Robert Kilby, on Friday, December 21, 2012 provided the rice to its employees, as a sign of appreciation for their immense contributions rendered the General Auditing Commission over the years.
The distribution of rice to the employees of the General Auditing Commission, according to its Communications Director, Nathaniel Brumskine is the first time in six years.
Making the presentation on behalf of the Commission, the Human Resource Manager at the GAC, Mr. Sylvester Orlando Jah, said the appreciation is the Auditor General's way of identifying with his employees for the Christmas.
According to Mr. Jah, the appreciation which is said to be the first of its kind, within six years is worth US$ 23,500.
The Human Resource Manager disclosed that the Commission was able to accumulate 470 bags of rice that covered over 400 employees at the General Auditing Commission.
"It is also important for a human touch on the employees of the GAC during this time of the year," Mr. Jah said.
Also speaking was the Communication Director, Mr. Nathaniel Brumskine, who said that the provision of rice to employees is not intended to silent the noise about the redundancy of several employees, but rather intended to motivate the employees.
When quizzed by journalists as to whether the rice was intended to promote the Auditor General, the GAC Communication Director said the Auditor General has done nothing wrong to appease anyone.
He told journalists that the gesture on the part of the Auditor General and his team of Managers is to help buttress whatever the employees had for the Christmas celebration.
