Papua New Guinea’s leading paint manufacturer and supplier has partnered with the country’s leading superannuation provider to make superannuation more accessible to its staff.
DuluxGroup and National Superannuation Fund (Nasfund) today launched the Nasfund Internet Booths – a facility that now enables its staff access to the Nasfund Member Online Portal.
Through this facility, DuluxGroup staff at its Lae and Port Moresby sites will now be able to access the Fund’s Member Online Portal within the comfort of their office.
According to DuluxGroup Human Resources Manager Andrew Topo, this development is in line with efforts to promoting a savings culture for its staff.
“As a responsible employer, DuluxGroup has taken ownership to provide our staff with important financial literacy training.
The launch of these internet-booths are an extension of our initiative. It will go a long way to ensure our staff have access to their superannuation information right here, without having to take time off to visit a Nasfund branch.
In addition, access will also be granted to the ncsl website and member portal – so that our staff can view their long-term (Nasfund) and short-term (ncsl) savings.
Training will be provided for our staff to use these computers, to assist them log-on, and navigate through these sites.
In addition to this, our partnership with Nasfund enables our staff to receive regular awareness on the Fund’s products and services. We believe that having informed staff will go a long way in ensuring they make the right financial decisions.”
Nasfund Chief Officer Member Services (COMS) Anne Wilson, says the approach taken by DuluxGroup is welcome, and is an example that other organizations can follow, especially given the current restrictions on movement due to COVID-19.
“As part of member services, we continue to work with our contributing employers to find ways to make their superannuation experience easier.
With improving internet technology, we are looking at ways to ensure we bring our services to our members wherever they are.
This internet booths arrangement with DuluxGroup is an example of this. Their Staff, our members, will now have access to Nasfund’s Member Online Portal, where they can have access to all their superannuation details, and have the ability to download their statements.
This can be done within their premises, without the need for staff to take time off work to go to a Nasfund branch. It is a win-win for all involved.
We thank DuluxGroup for partnering with us in this initiative, and we look forward to continuing our service to our contributors as we work together to be ready for tomorrow.”
