Presentation: The Euro Changeover – Building staff confidence
MEA Events 06/07/2007 - 06/07/2007
The National Euro Changeover Committee (NECC) in conjunction with the Malta Employers’ Association (MEA) organised a presentation on the implications of the euro changeover to the HR function within an organisation. The presentation was delivered by Mr. Joseph F. X. Zahra, Chairperson of NECC on 6 July 2007 at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta.
€ day is fast approaching and the mandatory dual display period is round the corner. It is thought that the very first few days of January 2008 will be the litmus test of our euro changeover national plan. Indeed, the dual circulation period will prove to be critical for the cash handlers, for two simple reasons;
- The cash handlers will have to handle a new currency;
- The cash handlers will have to handle two currencies at the same time.
Needless to say, the human resources of an organisation will play a crucial role during the euro changeover, be it cash handlers, IT staff, or accountancy staff. The employees need to be trained, informed, and involved in an organisation’s euro changeover plan. The information has to trickle top-down the organisation’s hierarchy and an internal euro contact point has to be established to receive queries and suggestions from the bottom end.
Mr. Zahra threw light on the dual display obligations, IT conversion issues, banks’ services, statutory reporting, and pricing issues, among others.
