Vox pop question:

My Zone asked members of the Okakarara community what they would do if they were a CEO of any organisation. We asked them to name one thing they would make compulsory and one thing they would ban in the organisation.

Dauglous Milupi

I would make it compulsory for employees to dress in an appropriate manner because uniform unites the whole team and reduces the chances of being mocked, sort of like less pressure on employees not to focus on clothing. I would ban the use of cellphones during working hours, as they are a distraction.

Fabiola Tjaveondja

Let’s assume I am a CEO of a vocational institution. I would make participation of all innovative ideas compulsory this enables trainees not to be left out in the process. I will ban the smoking of cigarettes on school premises.

Nelson Nambuli

I would make wellness programmes compulsory for all the employees as mental health plays a big role in the efficiency of employees. I will ban any discrimination and any type of retaliation.

Tracy Ngutonua

I will implement target reports on a daily basis to monitor progress of the employees and this will be compulsory. I will ban the use of cellphones during working hours as they can be a distraction towards reaching the ultimate daily goal.

Jakobina Kalombo

It depends on the organisation I am heading, but uniformity will be compulsory so that there will be no any division among employees. I will ban the use of alcohol on the premises of the office.

Raa Nguvauva

Teamwork is an integral part in any organisation as it acts as a chain link that maintains and uplifts any functionalities within the workplace community. For you are only as strong as your weakest link. As a CEO, I would eliminate nepotism, tribalism and favouritism for they inhibit job satisfaction and work performance as employees are unhappy, thus can't tap into their full potential.
