Guinness Nigeria In Confusion As Unmerited Post Upgrades Takes Over …Crisis Cripples Operations, Sales Dropped

Guinness Nigeria, a subsidiary of Diageo Plc of the United Kingdom, was incorporated in 1962 with the building of a brewery in Ikeja, the heart of Lagos. The brewery was the first Guinness operation outside Ireland and Great Britain.

The Lagos brewery at the moment is in great disarray, time has proved that there are likely no capable hands among decision makers of the brewing giant as unresolved management crisis is presently denting its reputation.

Information reaching has it that Guinness Nigeria is presently cursed with management crisis that might send it the giant to his early grave if care is not taking.
The crisis according to an insider started in July 2014 when Monica Peach was made the Human Resources Director. Though the appointment was frown at by members of staffs, the management hid under the pretense that she’ll only spend a year before a Nigerian will take over.

Almost immediately she settled down at the new office, Monica came with policies that the staffs union broods.
Findings revealed that among several of the policies is that staffs medicals should cover just the staff and two other members of his/her family, which means any staffs with two kids, he/she not covered with free medicals. Most recently, she led the exercise that evicted over 500 staffs among which are 10 directors, 40 senior managers. The sack exercise was badly managed that the staff Union protested with the warning to cripple production if all staffs affected were not call back.

For days production was stopped by the Union which eventually prompted the management to seek the assistance of the former HR director who was sacked few years ago. Wale Adeniran, the former HR director gave his conditions which included payment of N50million to manage the situation. Mr. Adeniran was said to have negotiated on behalf of Monica Peach with executives of the union offering them conditions that include severance to the affected staffs.

Right after the case was managed, the same consultant, Wale Adeniran was used to quench the fire of NAFDAC brouhaha which occurred last month that caused a decline in sales to the brewing giant. Unfortunately, the executives of the Union who the management labeled ‘tyrant’ were sacked thereafter not minding how experienced or how long they have worked with Guinness Nigeria.

Impeccable sources added that another of the management crisis presently rocking Guinness is the elevation of a lady simply called ‘Anne’ to the post of a director. The lady according to sources was newly employed after losing her job with Unilever. Though some quarter alleged she is warming the bed of the Peter Ndegwa, Guinness Managing Director, the management turned deaf ears and promoted Anne to the post of Sales Director barely few months after joining the organization.

Watch out other details: how distributor’s debt is sending the brewing giant to a grave soon, how Sales managers are defrauding the organization endlessly among several atrocities been committed by those in power in Guinness Nigeria.
