The Management of the LPRC under the leadership of Marie Urey Coleman has with immediate effect, changed the status of some 309 contractors to full time employees.
Those contractors, now employees, provided services for LPRC for about four to 20 years without medical and dental benefits for them and their families.
The decision by LPRC to promote the contractors was based on their experience and competence to effectively transform the company.
Speaking to the employees recently at the Product Storage Terminal (PST) in Monrovia, Coleman said though the matter has been lingering for a while, her decision was in support of the government’s Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development which seeks to empower its citizens by providing employment opportunities as a way of improving their living standard.
Speaking further, the LPRC Managing Director urged employees to take their jobs seriously and be more proactive especially in regards to upholding and maintaining their integrity.
