The Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) has validated its D2.45, 009, 202 billion five-year transformative Strategic Plan 2022-2026. It is the first strategic plan developed by the SSHFC and once validated, members of the Corporation will be able to monitor its implementation. The ambitious plan outlines the corporation’s vision and goals to realise its full potential and better fulfill its mandate and mission to serve its membership and external stakeholders with distinction. It will strengthen corporate governance and organisational effectiveness, financial and investment management for growth and long-term sustainability, HR and performance management, improve and enhance internal processes and service delivery, corporate image, provide affordable and sustainable shelter.

Speaking at the validation, the SSHFC managing director Abdoulie Tambedou urged members of the corporation to take ownership of the strategic plan.

“The Strategic Plan is to steer the Corporation on the path to maintaining its leadership role in offering social security services as mandated by the SSHFC Act 2015 and regulations to achieve its resolve to provide quality services to its stakeholders and customers by leveraging modern technologies,” he said.

MD Tambedou said the strategic plan aimed to further provide timely, convenient, and customer-centric services at all levels, by the end of its implementation period and beyond.

“This is even more critical during this planning period due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on lives and livelihoods whose impact could never have been foreseen a few years ago,” he added.

The Strategic Plan, he added, has taken stock of the corporation’s previous successes and shortcomings to determine its visions and future goals.

“The plan demonstrates our commitment to achieving excellence through our core functions of contribution, collections, benefits payments, and the provision of affordable housing for the populace, as well as our duty to engage stakeholders and the community,” he noted.

He stressed that the plan will offer long term growth and sustainability, improve internal service delivery processes, strengthen the corporate governance processes, provide affordable and sustainable shelter and strengthen the performance management system.

“We shall continue to engage our membership not only to ensure timely contribution collections and benefit payments, but to also increase the quality and size of the membership. We will at the same time foster positive partnership with sister social security institutions in the sub-region and beyond with a view to ensuring that our members benefit from international best practices and products,” Tambedou noted.

The Strategic Plan, he added, represents the concerted efforts of the Corporation’s stakeholders, whose invaluable input has been incorporated in the document.
