  • Jakarta, 27 February 2020 - Today, Indosat Ooredoo welcomed a visit by the RI House of Representatives Commission IX. During the visit representatives of the company conveyed that more than 90% of the 677 employees impacted by its business reorganization have accepted its offer, which includes a compensation package significantly above the statutory requirement.

    “We appreciate the visit from the House of Representatives Commission IX today. We have told them that our business reorganization has gone smoothly and has been well-received by the large majority of impacted employees. We have taken a fair approach to the reorganization that is aligned with prevailing laws and regulations and have communicated directly and transparently with all our employees throughout the process.” said Indosat Ooredoo’s Director & Chief Human Resources Officer Irsyad Sahroni in Jakarta, Thursday (27/02/2020).

    Moreover, Irsyad stated, “All of the employees impacted have been given time to consider the offer, and management has encouraged each person to make a decision based on what is best for them. Most took their time to consider the offer on their own and with their families before accepting. Impacted employees have had the opportunity for two-way dialogue with management and to have their concerns addressed during an open house held on the 17th February.”

    Indosat Ooredoo is now working with its partners including Managed Services, to give many of the impacted employees an opportunity to continue working under the umbrella of these partners and is also providing post-employment training and support.

    Irsyad concluded, “For those employees who have chosen not to accept the offer, we respect their different views and their right to settle the matter in line with applicable regulations. However, we believe this business reorganization is a difficult but necessary action for Indosat Ooredoo to sustain and grow and is another strategic step towards our company becoming a leading digital telco that people trust.”
