TELECOMMUNICATIONS giant, Globacom, has rolled out a series of Free Access telephone lines to the entire Federal Civil Service of Nigeria in its bid to contribute to the productivity of public servants in the country.
The lines are programmed under a Closed User Group (CUG) platform which gives all civil servants seamless, yet affordable communication opportunities within and outside the service. The lines would also be documented in a formal directory with the names and ministries of domicile of all public servants at the federal level.
Globacom said in an address at the unveiling of the scheme in Abuja, on Monday that the relationship between telecommunications and the civil service in any growing nation cannot be over-emphasized. “For one, telecommunications enable nations to improve the productivity and efficiency of their workforce because employees can deploy voice and data services to make calls, send or receive email, browse websites, conduct research, access databases or participate in conference calls,” the company added.
According to the network, the public servants not only enjoy the opportunity to save precious executive time but it also helps to reduce organizations’ communications equipment costs. In addition to this, productivity, efficiency and passion for excellence are kindled owing to the fact that tedium of work is lessened, while greater results are obtained in the process.
“Collaboration between employees is now one of the most important organizational activities across the globe. Indeed, telecommunications makes it easier for employees in different departments or remote locations to work together. Rather than spend effort booking a conference room or travelling to meetings, employees can join a video-conference or Web conference from their desks,” Globacom added.
