Be ready for new work culture, Air India chief writes to employees
NEW DELHI: With the privatization on the anvil, Air India President Ashwani Lohani told employees that they were willing to totally change the culture of work and merit as they can get a “better deal”.
He also gave the reason for the government’s decision to sell the IA – the maharaja’s inability to repair the burden of accumulated debt CRS 50,000.
“This huge debt accumulated due to continued losses in recent years.
However, it will be appreciated that, unless a solution to this huge debt is found, long-term survival is almost impossible and the proposal to consider divestment is a step in that direction.
It is the firm belief that the government that the divestment process only make Air India a much stronger world-class airline … In fact, it would be a win-win solution for employees, “wrote in a Lohani letter to employees .
He also asked people to be ready for the new culture to work in a private environment. “These are times of change and change, although inevitable, remains difficult to accept.
Ownership of the changes we expect from Air India also leads to a change in work environment and work culture.
The complexity of the work environment in a power source would be replaced by a culture, a culture in which the merit would be to get a better offer. ”
“This should fully realize the inherent potential of your airline as well as create an environment that would in fact be conducive to anyone who is accustomed to working hard with commitment and integrity.
The wonderful team of aircraft, specially authorized personnel (including pilots, aircraft engineers and cabin crew), therefore should not be skeptical, “Lohani writes.
The president has tried to alleviate the fears of government-hired employees from privatizing AI by telling them that their “true and valid” interests would be guaranteed. He also completed the airline’s network and extended service improvement.
“While it is true that the merger has led to operational difficulties, we are confident to resolve genuine employee grievances, an effort that has been successful on a limited scale,” he said, urging staff to continue working hard to increase the share Of the AI market.
