Big firms urged to join project

THE BARBADOS BEST EMPLOYERS (BBE) programme is looking to attract more of the large public and private companies and the trade unions to participate.

Responding to queries from some of the businesspeople who attended the launch of the 2016 edition at the Savannah Hotel yesterday morning, managing director of Caribbean Catalyst Inc., Rosalind Jackson, said the organisers had been trying with little success to attract those kinds of entities since 2010.

Against the backdrop that the BBE programme was about building a better Barbados, Jackson said they cannot “press ahead building a stronger Barbados without the largest employer in the land”.

She urged past participants and those looking to be a part of the programme this year to use moral suasion or whatever tool was necessary to bring those missing entities on board.
