Another pillar rumbles in Mobilink, as we have just come to know through reliable source that Ali Raza Mehdi has resigned as Vice President HR & Admin of Mobilink and is likely to join METRO as one of the members of Board of Directors.
It is assumed that Sardar Khalid, Director HR & Admin will take over as Acting Vice President.
Mobilink, the largest Telecom operator in Pakistan is on a spree of layoffs ever since Rashid Khan came as President and CEO; a good way of reducing its overheads which maybe in the era of Zohair Khaliq was not possible.
The talk of the industry is that Ali Raza Mehdi left Mobilink on humanitarian grounds as he was not willing to be the part of the “Lay Offs”; which by the way is expected again in near future.
Sources opine that recent series of Layoffs is abandoned due to employees’ morale; however, severe time is expected again early next year with promotions along with exit door for the rest.
Mobilink has not said anything on this officially, as of now.
