… Five Ghanaian Workers of SOS Ghana Legal Migration Program Honoured
August 25, 2013 – Dhajeej, Kuwait – The Sultan Center Food Products Co. KSC (better known as The Sultan Center, or TSC) Management welcomed Princess Ocansey of Ghana as Guest of Honour for the anniversary celebration of the SOS-TSC Legal Migration Program between SOS Labour Ghana and The Sultan Center Kuwait which was initiated in 2011.
‘We choose our partners carefully worldwide, said Princess Ocansey. ‘In Kuwait, we are proud of the achievements of Mr. Jamil Sultan, founder of TSC. We share the same values of complete dedication to quality, service, value, integrity and respect for the individual. Our workers are very happy at TSC Kuwait and as we celebrate this anniversary, we are proud to say, the SOS-TSC Legal Migration Program in Kuwait is a model we would like to duplicate worldwide. We have come to also thank TSC for the opportunity given to the Ghanaian Youth and to honour TSC for being the SOS ‘Employer of the Year -2012,’ said the Princess Ocansey.
Mr Hani Ishmael, Group Head of Resourcing, and two team members made the first TSC official visit to Ghana in 2011 to recruit and hire the first group of Ghana workers from the duly licensed agency in Ghana, SOS Labour Ghana Ltd. TSC had read about SOS Labour’s excellence in manpower supply with major companies like McDonalds and Canada Bread in Canada, several top hotels in the USA, Fenner Dunlop in Australia, as well as many large companies including Nakilat-Keppel and ACTS in Qatar. While in Ghana, the TSC team saw the potential of Ghana as a viable source of workers as the retail supermarket business was also booming in Ghana.
According to Mr. Hani Ishmael, TSC was impressed with the SOS Labour and Channels of Blessings International Life Skills Training Program – the Certified Global Workers Program – which prepared the workers with international work ethics and life skills, making them very successful working legally overseas. The program was supported by a weekly radio program, ‘Travelling Overseas God’s Way’ on Sunny Fm in Accra, which provided important information about the high moral standard required in preparation for sustainable legal migration.
‘This unique program made this first batch of Ghana workers very successful for TSC. The workers are hard-working with a very high level of attendance, retention and performance. Positions held by the workers are mostly stockers, cashiers, warehouse-men, butchers, caterers, assistant supervisors,’ said Mr. Hani Ishmael.
‘This Generation of Ghanaian Youth Deserve to Work Overseas as Documented Workers,’ said Princess Ocansey.’ Illegal migration must end by our Government playing a very vital role to boost legal migration by signing Labour MOU’s with key nations to boost foreign exchange remittances back home to grow our economy. No more dying in the deserts, no more dying in banana boats..the era of legal migration is HERE and NOW, and here to stay!
The Ghana workers honoured are: Seth Martey, Castro Sogah, Elizabeth Akate, Fred Setsofia and Joseph Nketiah who have shown outstanding performance during this first year at TSC.
The Sultan Center operates 14 major retail outlets in Kuwait. The company also encompasses restaurants and catering, trading, fashion, telecommunications, security, and investments. TSC employs over 7,000 staff and is pleased to have Ghana as a new addition to its diverse workforce.
