Hatif Libya Company, (Telephone Libya) a subsidiary of the Libyan Post Telecommunications & Information Technology Company (LPTIC), yesterday honoured the retirement of employees who chose voluntary retirement. The ceremony was held at the company’s headquarters in Tripoli, under the banner of “Loyalty to the People of Giving.”
The voluntary retirement programme, launched by Hatif Libya and approved by LPTIC, is aimed at workers over 60 to allow the younger generation an opportunity to join the workforce.
The number of employees targeted in this program is about 912 and the process of retirement for the first 502 employees has already been completed. The second group will retire at the beginning of May, and the final group will complete their retirement this coming autumn.
Attending the ceremony, LPTIC chairman Faisel Gergab, expressed his gratitude to employees who opted for voluntary retirement. “It is with certainty that the honoured employees of the company have fulfilled their duties and have been supportive and cooperative with their management and colleagues throughout their time at Hatif Libya. I would like to see them help future generation employees by volunteering in training, development, and knowledge transfer in our newly launched ICT Academy, which will contribute to the advancement of science and promotion of research”.
Mohamed Balras Ali, Chairman of Hatif Libya, also attending the event stated: “On this day we would like to thank and express gratitude to our colleagues who may have stopped coming to work but will not stop giving. Our company will always be their second home.”
