Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL) is set to increase its workforce to more than 4,000 Liberians by 2016, Mr. Stephen Binda, head of GVL’s local communications, told journalists yesterday at a local restaurant in Monrovia.“Presently we have employed 3,501 Liberians and that figure will increase to over 4,000 by 2016,” Binda said, and explained that GVL is set to complete a mill that will produce palm oil products in Tarjuowon, Sinoe County.Liberians who resided in the company’s areas of operation can rest assured that their interests are paramount to GVL, Binda said adding that the company wants to accelerate the economic progress of Liberians who are employed with GVL. He told several editors at the meeting that GVL has invested over US$1.5billion in its operations and therefore accurate information could lead to more investments in Liberia.Binda pointed out that since GVL began operations in Sinoe County, several developments, including the opening of a Total Gas Station and two local banks, have taken place in the county.“This has come about because GVL has created trust in the people and the over three thousand employees now have encouraged other essential businesses to operate in Sinoe,” he said. He appealed to the local media to work along with GVL to provide balanced information to the Liberian government, its employees, Liberians and its corporate partners. Binda said the success of GVL is basically linked with that of Liberia, “because when many thousands of Liberians are employed, they can have a better future for themselves and their families and Liberia will be better off.” He said GVL is committed to ensure the rights of all Liberian citizens in its areas of operation and will respect local, national, and ratified international laws and assured Liberians that the company will provide equal opportunities for all Liberian employees and workers, and embrace diversity regardless of ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, political affiliation, sexual orientation or union membership. Binda concluded that GVL will recognize communities who engage the company to develop their land and they will receive priority of initial opportunities in line with GVL’s internal Human Resource Policy. The meeting was attended by Mr. Virgil Magee, GVL’s head of Communications. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
