The National Social Security Authority (NSSA) has fired 15 middle managers as it streamlines operations amid indications that hundreds of employees face retrenchment early next year. NSSA is expected to make an official announcement today about the retrenchments.
Sources told The Herald that the affected middle managers cut across all departments. The affected are the human resources manager, finance manager, administration manager, Harare regional manager, an engineer, economist and two audit managers. The decision to dismiss the middle managers follows a board meeting held on Wednesday.
NSSA board chairperson Mr Robin Vela yesterday confirmed the authority was retrenching a number of managers. He, however, would not divulge details saying an official statement would be released today.
