Poised to further consolidate the success recorded in the last financial year, Shalina Healthcare, has unveiled its new business strategy and culture, while applauding some outstanding staff for their unwavering loyalty and contribution over the years.
The colourful occasion, which took place at the Orchid Hotel & Resort Centre, Lekki, Lagos, recently, was said to be aimed at aligning its Nigeria business with the global corporate initiative.
Addressing the staff during the event, Shalina’s Vice President for West Africa, Mr Arun Raj noted that in order to support the new strategy of the company, it is equally important to drive a new culture amongst the team to achieve it, saying that was the whole essence of the programme.
According to him, the motive of the event was based on the new corporate goals of the organisation and the right corporate culture to drive the same.
Also speaking in the same vein, Mr Suresh Karuppiahsamy, the head, Consumer Business, West Africa, stated that the foundation of every business’s success depends on its people, saying it is very important that the entire Shalina team rallies towards a common vision.
In his own speech, Mr Amit Nagpal, the Head of Human Resources for West Africa, said creating a high-performing culture where every single Shalina team strives to deliver their best is what the company is out to achieve.
Also speaking, Pharm. Folorunso Alaran, head of Corporate Marketing, disclosed that it had been a successful ride for Shalina in the concluded year despite the COVID-19 challenges, adding that it is largely due to the resilience of the workforce as a team. He added that appreciating the staff and stakeholders is the least the company could do.
Corroborating Alaran, Sandeep Sahu, head, brand marketing stated, “Indeed we can take the leap and achieve the new objectives with careful executions of the various strategies earmarked for each of the brands. Shalina believes access to quality healthcare is a right for all Africans, so they can lead healthy, productive lives.”
“Shalina Healthcare is an African-focused multinational company with a presence in more than 12 countries in sub-Saharan Africa with the vision to be sub-Saharan Africa’s health champion with brands that people love and trust founded on principles of quality, affordability, and availability.”
One of the highlights of the event was the pomp and pageantry of the Award and Gala night where outstanding members of staff were recognised and rewarded for their dedication and performance during the last financial year.
The event ended with merriment and team bonding of Shalina staff from across the federation.
