We will place an increased focus on delivering the best products and services to our customers  while leveraging our strengths in innovation, quality and customer focus.”

Willsher however commented on the recent retrenchment of 74 employees said the company has zero tolerance for indiscipline and nonchalant attitude from its employees

“Etisalat remains fully committed to executing its business strategies with the help of a high-performing team of dedicated, hardworking employees. This is a strategic business decision as we continue to match our structure and quality of delivery with our customers’ expectations which is what makes customers happy and our business successful,” he said.
