The Royal Media Services (RMS) group headed by SK Macharia on Wednesday announced that it would be embarking on a reorganisation process that will see a number of its employees lose their jobs.
In a statement released on Wednesday, RMS stated that due to changes in the broadcasting industry, the giant media house had been left with no option but to "reorganise its operations".
“As a result, the company is left with no choice but to reorganise its operations. This includes rationalisation of various departments."
“Unfortunately and regrettably, the action will result in the reduction of our workforce through job redundancies. The management realises that this exercise will be very difficult for the affected members of staff and their families,” the statement signed by RMS managing Director Wachira Waruru reads.
However, RMS has promised to compensate the employees who will be affected.
“The exercise will be taken within provisions of the law and the company will provide the affected staff with the necessary support to help them manage the transition,'' the statement adds.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, a source at RMS confirmed the memo adding that at least 100 employees will be affected.
Reports indicate that 30 of them will be from different radio stations.
