Nestlé Pakistan has launched Employee Relations Lahore Chapter.
There are such forums already working in Karachi but such an interactive forum did not exist in Lahore. Nestlé Pakistan decided to take advantage of the opportunity and provide a platform that would serve as a source of learning and collaboration and develop market synergies.
The launch event was held at the Avari. Participating organisations included Coca Cola, Unilever, Fatima Group, ICI, Fauji Fresh & Freeze, Mitchells, Sufi Group, Descon, National Foods and Packages Ltd.
Akmal Saeed, Head of HR, Nestlé; Haroon Waheed, Head of HR Fatima Group; Ms. Najam Ul Saher, Nestlé Corporate Employee Relations Manager; Adnan Kherati, HR Manager, ICI; and Shama Jabir, HR Business Partner Employee Relations, Coca-Cola spoke on the occasion.
Akmal Saeed said, "ER forms the backbone of every organisation and if managed with transparency, honesty and keen interest, it leads to the success of the organisation. The launch of this forum will provide a collaborative and interactive platform for developing synergies across the market in the employee relations community."
Haroon Waheed described the development as a great initiative on the part of Nestlé Pakistan to gather professionals at a platform and provide everyone an opportunity to learn from each other’s experience.
"It is a fantastic initiative by Nestlé Pakistan," said Adnan Kherati. "It’s a difficult task to get professionals from ER to come together due to the nature and scope of their work. Having all leading organizations come together for this initiative will be very beneficial for the entire HR community."
Shama Jabir appreciated Nestlé for taking the lead in starting the ER Chapter. "This will be a great platform for all of us," she said. "ER professionals will now learn, share and develop new ideas and practices."
