As suggested by the Southern Network Services Director, Norbert Dzamposu Anku, in the coming years the company needs to resolve to service outsourcing to minimise staff cost. He added that, the approach will be in consonance with the company’s mission to maintain its clout as a reliable electricity provider, adequately and cost effectively.
