Employees are key tools in building successful businesses. Richard Nii Armah Quaye, Founder and Board Chairman of Quick Credit, a micro-credit institution, said this during the end-of-year get-together party and dinner at the Accra International Conference Centre.
According to him, the continued successes being chalked up by the wholly Ghanaian-owned company could be attributed to the employees, who, in diverse ways, have contributed to the growth of the organization and hence deserved recognition.
He said, “I would like to thank you all and commend everyone for the sacrifices and loyalty shown throughout our history.” “Employees are key tools in building every business and nation.”
“Each time I meet you, it reminds me of our humble beginnings and gets me very humbled, but it is also very inspiring to me to always keep believing in myself and reaffirm my belief that everything under this sun is possible,” Mr. Quaye added.
The Board Chairman underscored the importance of unity and principles among the board, management, and staff, which has propelled the company onto a sustainable growth path.
The company, he emphasized, grew exponentially despite the outbreak of COVID-19 because his outfit thought outside the box to focus on ways of serving their clients better, taking advantage of technology and other methods.
Mr. Quaye reaffirmed the company’s commitment to contributing its quota to building a prosperous Ghana by helping individuals create opportunities for themselves.
