National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Chief Executive, Hon. Dr. Bernard Okoe-Boye says showing maximum respect to the organization’s drivers is the best form to empower them.
He, therefore, urged senior management at all levels to make the drivers feel that their skills and time are appreciated.
Hon. Dr. Bernard Okoe-Boye made the remark at a meeting with drivers of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) in the Greater Accra Region, as part of his regional tour.
According to him, engaging the drivers was meant to have their voices heard, and insisted that the organization’s management teams should hold the drivers in high esteem.
This, in his estimation, can make the difference the organization requires to achieve the national goal of attaining Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by the year 2030.
The NHIA Boss described driving as a great profession and assured the drivers that they will be well-compensated to do the best job possible.
He promised to continually use the feedback platform that will enable all NHIA staff to share crucial information that can then be used to optimize the Authority’s operations.
He gave the drivers an opportunity to satisfactorily make their voices heard and invited his team members to address some of the concerns raised at the meeting.
The NHIA Governing Board Chair, Dr. Ernest K.P Kwarko stated, "Let's collectively work towards sustaining the NHIS to give all residents in Ghana the best healthcare.
Let's own this together and celebrate it together." "We need a motivated staff to achieve the best results. As a Board, we will work in harmony with management to achieve success, " he added.
Some of the drivers in a joyful mood described the meeting as unprecedented and called for more of such engagements.
They reaffirmed their commitment to safeguarding the organization’s vehicles and always exhibit the highest form of professionalism in the line of duty.
