Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), the Bahrain-based international aluminium smelter, marked the final session of the 2017 ‘Town Hall Meetings’ today, January 29, 2017, which was held at Alba Oasis Hall.
The 2017 Town Hall Meetings commenced on January 15, 2017 and covered more than 89% of Alba’s workforce through nine sessions. This year, the ‘Town Hall Meetings’ sessions also witnessed the participation of dignitaries from various private and public organisations in Bahrain.
Speaking about the annual Town Hall Meetings, Alba’s CEO Tim Murray said:
“Town Hall Meeting was launched with the purpose of establishing a direct line of communication between employees and the Management as well as to convey Alba’s performance and expectations in a simple and transparent manner. We believe that these sessions help bridge the gap between different layers of the Company and build synergy amongst various teams.
Alba had a great year in terms of Safety and Operational achievements in 2016. We must now prepare for 2017 as what makes us successful at one level is not what makes us successful at the next. By building on our 2017 Expectations, namely: Safety Tomorrowland; Line 6 Transformation; Titan DNA and Do Your Job A+, we aim to exceed our targets and achieve beyond excellence in everything we do.
The ‘Town Hall Meeting’ was a special initiative introduced by Murray in January 2014 as a way of directly communicating with the employees and updating them on the Company’s performance and achievements of the past year and the goals for the coming year.
