Joramco stands for protection, job security of its workers amid coronavirus crisis

Apr 07,2020 - Last updated at Apr 07,2020

The coronavirus pandemic has had overwhelming economic repercussions on all industrial and commercial sectors in the world in general and in the region in particular, causing many companies to lay off thousands of employees.  In spite of these unprecedented difficulties, Joramco, the Amman-based MRO and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), has announced its commitment for maintaining job security for all its employees.

The company’s commitment has included the entire workforce of 1,100 employees as well as a contract extension for all the temporary contract workers whose contracts have expired, or will expire soon, for an additional three months.

This step reflects the obligations that Joramco places on its responsibility towards the growth and development of the civil aviation sector in the Kingdom as well as to its corporate social responsibility.

Jeff Wilkinson, CEO of Joramco, said: “The entire world, including Jordan, is witnessing difficult times that have not been seen for centuries and are affecting all sectors and industries, especially aviation. We at Joramco believe that the private sector has a key role to play in helping the country to resolve this crisis and if we work hand in hand with the government and the aviation public sector, we will be able to succeed in overcoming all obstacles, and return stronger than ever for a brighter future.”

Wilkinson continued: “The health and safety of our workforce has always been paramount at Joramco, and as we face these difficult circumstances, letting any of our staff go is simply not an option. We are determined to take care of each and every employee so that they can focus on what matters — the well-being of themselves and their loved ones.”
