Mr. Mohinani advised employers to stay ahead of technology, interact and train staff consistently to ensure the sustainance of the businesses.

He said the employers failure to do that had led to the increase in unemployment in the country, stating that employees would have to be endowed with new skills and knowledge to stay in business.

The executive director appealed to employers to train their workers, to meet the market demand evolving globally.

“Things are very tough and companies would have to adjust themselves to overcome the economic crisis that is transcending all over.”

Touching on sanitation, he said the key to waste management was education and disclosed that the group launched its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects that engaged students through waste management exercise to promote a clean and healthy environment.

The campaign, in a form of a competition seeks to inspire the youth through education and inculcate in them the habit of proper waste disposal.

CSR initiatives, he added, sought to engage and educate the Ghanaian populace on proper waste management and disposal, through sustainable partnership with Environmental Service Providers Association (ESPA) and Environment 360, a non governmental organisation in Ghana.

The executive director said its main objective was to engage Ghanaians through waste management to exercise and promote a clean and healthy environment, stating that recycling should be a way of life for everyone, therefore starting the education process with pupils would ensure that.
