Employees who have distinguished themselves from January to March have been recognised by the Management of MPS.
The occasion was used to attest to their positive attitudes to the assigned roles that led to them being determined as the top performers for the first quarter of 2022.
In a speech to begin the ceremony, Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Curtiss Dakpogan congratulated the staff present for achieving such a remarkable performance during the first quarter and conveyed all the appreciation of the management team. He also encouraged them to keep up the good work as being the best may be easy however it is much more difficult to remain at the top.
The Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Cyrille Lemee while presenting the awards praised the employees for their dedication to duty and encouraged them to not rest on their oars.
Present at the ceremony were management heads from the various Departments including IT, Operations, QHSSE, Asset Maintenance and a representative of Hilpok, an outsourced company, Mr. Samuel Bortier whose employee was recognised as the best Reach Stacker Operator.
The Operations Manager, Mr Emmanuel Ohene Addo who read out the testimonials of all the awardees, described them as deserving of the awards for working hard month after month amongst their colleagues.
It was interesting to note that out of the employees who excelled in the last quarter of 2021, only one, the best terminal truck driver, retained his position.
MPS considers this an opportunity to motivate employees and serve as an example to other colleagues to take an interest in continuous performance improvement. With the kickstart of the LEAN Program, it is believed that it will further enhance the quality of output produced by the staff.

J. K as he is affectionately known, brought in a new dimension in the safety walk. He engages and holds safety talks with staff (outsourced or permanent) when he finds an unsafe act in their area of work. He then gets them to fix it. He has contributed to making the terminal safe especially onboard vessels. He does the walk at the beginning of the shift and periodically goes round to ensure all safety protocols are in place.
Emmanuel Ebo Adjei – Best Asset Maintenance Staff
Ebo is one of the three technicians tasked to focus energy on SQC spreaders, attend to spreader breakdowns and accurately report on the breakdowns within the last three months. Ebo has proved himself apt to the task by working diligently to ensure oil leakages on the spreaders are promptly attended to, attended pre-checks, and guarantee spreaders that come to the workshop are worked on immediately to make them available for operation. This exceptional dedication made him the obvious choice for the best worker for the first quarter.
Philip Dinko – Best Planning/Gate Staff
Philip Dinko is a Gate Exception Handling Clerk from the White Ox shift. Since the exit of Enos Alornu (retired Gate Supervisor) Philip has been assisting Kofi Asiedu in the supervisory work. Despite all the time spent to support the team, he managed to perform the highest number of troubleshooting transactions in the first quarter cumulatively. His spotting of safety issues was also visible. He has a unique feature of reporting to work very early and by this he becomes well-informed with issues of the preceding shift. He has been the preferred choice when one clerk is needed to test something in the system due to his ability to identify challenges and their possible causes.
