Provide a 6 pages analysis while answering the following question: Low Morale, Lack of Job Satisfaction and General Welfare of Employees of Ramseyer Shipping Agencies Ghana Ltd. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Ghana, a Sub-Saharan African country, with a population of 24 million (as of 2010) and with per capita GDP of 1098 USD, is an island of English speaking country in the ocean of Francophone nations (Ghana Government Portal, 2012). While the maritime industry plays a significant role in the development of any country, Ghana has failed to take advantage of two ports and harbors to serve the needs of its neighboring landlocked countries. The maritime industry has a wide scope ranging from designing, constructing, and maintaining vessels to managing and operating shipping lines, freight forwarding, and hence the industry has the capacity to generate a lot of direct and indirect jobs (Graphic Business, 2012).Ramseyer Shipping Agencies Ghana Ltd is engaged in shipping cargo from the Far East and Europe to Africa. In addition, it intends to add services such as stevedoring, shore-handling, customs clearance, and warehousing in the future. The vision statement of the company is to be a leading competitive shipping agency and to take advantage of the latest technology to seek out an up-to-date solution to its clients. Since the company has been formed after a series of takeovers and mergers, the staff at Ramseyer Shipping is apprehensive of the growth and profitability of the company amidst the competitive environment in which it operates. This is responsible for low morale among the staff which consequently affects the output.The staff at Ramseyer Shipping was apprehensive of their future at the company but they were assured of good returns once the company found a solid footing. However, the company did make profits but the staff was not included in it. Their wages continued to be the same while the shareholders were paid handsome annual dividends. The staff could not leave their jobs because of a lack of opportunities in Ghana. If people gave up their jobs they would either have to return to agriculture which was hardly remunerative or fall back on the informal economy for subsistence (ILO, 2004).
