In a world filled with heartbreak and uncertainty, the incredible story of Hachikō remains and reminds us that loyalty is key, feasibly – one of the most precious gift of all. For those who don’t know about that story, it’s a touching gist that simply teaches (everyone) that loyalty is a thread that can bring together an entire community.
Let’s trickle it down to our very own present day and tell you that recently at the 2019 edition of iYes, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) EIB Network, one of Ghana’s biggest media empire, Nathan Kwabena Anokye Adisi popularly known as Bola Ray shockingly revealed that about 183 staff had to say “au revoir, it’s goodbye” to the organization for various reasons.
According to him, out of the 483 staff he started the media group with; only 300 are still at post indicating that some left after the company ran into challenges.
“…In the month of August 2018, I had a lot of people walking away because it was difficult…It got to a point that anybody who walks into my office, I ask: ‘Are you resigning’. Out of 483 workers we started EIB Network with, we still have some great people out there making about 300 who are still with us and across the nation,” he said while applauding the about three hundred personalities.
With no hard feelings towards the departed staffs, Bola Ray told the audience that it is important to celebrate those who give their all to stand by one, in blustery times; he applauded the current staff who with him have dearly at heart, the vision of the establishment that strives for excellence in the media landscape.
EIB Network was founded in August 2014, with its headquarters, Accra. The media group operates Starr FM, LIVE FM, Kasapa FM, GHOne TV and Agoo TV (all in Accra); Ultimate FM and Abusua FM (in Kumasi); Empire FM and Radio 360 (in Takoradi), Agoo FM (in Nkawkaw) and the Daily Heritage Newspaper (also in Accra).
Just like the incredible story of Hachikō was celebrated then, BOLA RAY is today acknowledging his about 300 staff for their fidelity.
