The SERVICOM Office has tasked the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) to deliver on its mandate of providing compensation for employees who suffer injuries or diseases in the course of their employment.
The National Coordinator, SERVICOM, Mrs Nnenna Akajemeli who said this during a courtesy visit to the Director General of the Fund, Barrister Bayo Somefun. noted that employees are internal customers of every organization and should be given some measure of assurance on their safety and wellbeing as this would boost their commitment to serve external customers well.
She further said employees who do well should be rewarded to make for a healthy competition in the work place and commended the DG for existence of a functional SERVICOM Unit at NSITF.
According to her, citizens’ priorities should drive service improvement in Ministries, Departments and Agencies ( MDAs).
The DG of the Fund, assured that he would give the SERVICOM Unit of the Fund all the needed support for its maximum function in driving service improvement in the organisation, so that services of the Fund truly serve those for whom they are meant.
The NSITF started as a Provident Fund Scheme over fifty years ago. It evolved to Social Insurance Scheme and currently the Employee’s Compensation Scheme.
