South Africa: MTN Senior Execs Give Up Salary Increase To Help COVID Impacted Colleagues
Senior executives of MTN South Africa are reportedly offering not to receive their annual salary increases, but instead, have asked the company to donate the fund to helping company staff affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
MTN South Africa's corporate affairs executive, Jacqui O'Sullivan, says the company's primary concern remains supporting our employees and our customers. Saying that
"Our employees are facing the same pressures in their households as are being felt across the country and we felt it imperative that we continue with the annual salary increase for all other employees in this time of great economic pressure."
"No one knows everything about this virus, and we are constantly heeding new local and international guidance to protect our people. Any claim to the contrary is crass, baseless and disrespectful to our people who put themselves out there, each day, to keep South Africans connected."
MTN will continue to work to protect employees and their families, with every resource available to the company. Jacqui O'Sullivan concluded.
