New management of Tex Styles Ghana Ltd. also known as GTP has expressed commitment to increasing the company’s female workforce to 40% in the next five years.
According to the company, this is part of moves to create a culture of performance, trust and collaboration.
The company, in a release, laid out the transformation agenda of the new management team, led by Fatoumata Doro.
“My goal is to have 40% female workforce in the next five years, providing maternity coverage for all female staff which was not the case before” said Fatoumata.
The company’s measures are already bearing results as the number of female employees has increased from 17.9% to 25% within the past eight months.
The textile industry in Ghana has over the years represented Ghana culturally and is currently responsible for 3% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
“The producers of GTP and Woodin have since September 2021, under the leadership of the Managing Director, Fatoumata Doro determined to bring change into the textiles sector, for the benefit of TSG employees, the national economy”, stated the second paragraph of the said press release.
The release went further to disclose that the transformational agenda is two-pronged; winning in Ghana and expanding beyond the borders of Ghana. The company revealed that it seeks to transform itself from a textile manufacturer to a life-style brand.
In an impressive “walk-the-talk” move, Tex Styles Ghana has begun improving workforce diversity, increasing production volumes, introducing digital services and repositioning the brand.
Despite these measures, the press release affirmed that, “TSG is also positioning itself to continually produce locally made fabrics with premium quality and timeless designs to ensure consumer satisfaction and align with sustainable manufacturing.”
The company says the goal is to double business growth by 2025 with sustainable investment during the next five years in machinery and personnel.
