Struggling Standard Group to lay off staff

CAPTION: Orlando Lyomu, CEO Standard Group

Struggling media house Standard Group has declared its intention to lay off staff.

“I wish to notify all members of staff of the Company’s intention to declare redundancy across various departments,’ a statement seen by cnyakundi.com stated in part.

The Moi family-linked media house gave reasons for the move among them blaming the ‘negative of the covid-19 pandemic’ and the ‘shifting trends occasioned by technological changes in the digital environment’.

Staffers selected for the purge have been given a one-month notice.

“The Company is therefore giving one (1) months’ notice of the Company’s intention to declare redundancy with effect from the date hereof, The redundancy is expected to affect employees across various departments and will be undertaken in phases. The affected employees will be duly informed in writing,” the statement said.

Insiders blame the collapse of the company to bad management, nepotism, and lack of meritocracy in promotions.
