Tristar Group reassures 2,000 staff no layoffs will be made
No layoffs will be made across its 21 countries that it operates in due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Dubai-based integrated energy logistics provider Tristar Group has pledged to its 2,000 employees across 21 countries that there will be no layoffs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All office and admin staff in the UAE and other GCC countries are now working from home while its global road transport, specialised warehousing, shipping, fuel farms, fuel supply operations and lubricants distribution are still running.
Commenting on the announcement, Tristar Group CEO, Eugene Mayne, said: “We have a very resilient business model and together with your continued support and hard work I expect that we can survive the current challenges and come out stronger and better when this is all over.”
Mayne added that the payment of staff salaries will continue to have the “top most priority” and that they are working to “release the 2019 bonus to all staff soon which I trust will be welcome in these difficult times.”
“All of us our born leaders, in some way or another, and there is no greater time than now to show this leadership. We must act responsibly in our homes, our work places and our neighbourhoods. Social distancing or keeping away from crowds and crowded places is the need of the hour to contain the spread of the disease.”
