Sigma Pension boosts customers’ personnel competence
The Managing Director/Chief Executive, Sigma Pensions Limited, Dave Uduanu, has reiterated the company’s commitment to sustain a policy of giving back to its customers and business associates.
Addressing journalists during a capacity development programme for human resources (HR) personnel of its stakeholders, in Abuja, he said, as a corporate social citizen, it is determined to pay back to customers in order to add value for their patronage.
According to him, the focus on human resources personnel in key organisations was borne out of the desire to explore ways of improving their competence in HR management and productivity as well as on issues bordering on wills and trust.
He said: “We hope at the end of the engagement they’ll see how they can improve their productivity and efficiency. As you know, for any organisation, the manpower is the best capital you can have – so if you can improve productivity of your personnel, then definitely you are improving your business.”
The Managing Director, which was represented by the Executive Director, Technical, Sigma Pensions, Ibrahim Balarabe, said there are concerns around wills and trust, as they affects customers in the event of the death of customers.
According to him, inadequate contribution of funding remains a major challenge in the pension industry amid the present global financial constraint.
He said: “We can understand the economy is on the downturn but we’re looking forward positively but many employers are not able to pay employees contribution.”
“So it’s not the fault of those employers, it’s an economic situation global not even in Nigeria alone. And looking at what government has put in place over the years since the new administration came in, we feel positive that things will turn around very soon,” he added.
