Labour Day Reflections

May 1, 2013 – Today is a Gazetted Holiday in Myanmar but HamsaHub colleagues and I have been working on preparatory activities for the seminar tomorrow, the one which we are co-sponsoring.  But thankfully, it’s rather a relaxing day as most of the clients are on holidays and I managed to reflect on the importance of workers in Myanmar. 

Sometimes, many business owners (including majority of my clients) forget about the importance and value of their employees.  Employers tend to forget that their employees are the last line of defence when competing with foreign players. 

There is increasing competition for local enterprises from ASEAN and beyond.  So it is only right that employees, the main resource to counter competition, are treated well, nurtured and capitalised upon.
