Barbados gets poor work ethic rating

(Barbados Nation) Barbadians poor work ethic may be the biggest impediment to doing business successfully here.

The World Economic Forum, an independent organization in Europe, has placed “poor work ethic in the national labour force” as the “most problematic” factor for doing business in this country.

However, the island’s largest public sector trade union, the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), has rapped the report, with general secretary Dennis Clarke stating that some foreign businesses were frustrated they could not come here and treat workers “how they like”.

Chief executive officer of the National Initiative for Service Excellence (NISE) Kim Tudor called it “distressing”.
