Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture creating a more conducive environment for National Archives workers

Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture creating a more conducive environment for National Archives workers ( Following the reopening of National Archives in February 2014, Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, visited workers and the management team to monitor their reintegration in the building and to listen to their aspirations and needs. The visit in the presence of Alain Lucas, Director of National Archives, started in the National Archives lobby area. “The lobby area is the first impression that visitors get when entering the National Archives," Minister St.Ange said as he urged the National Archives team to create a friendlier image in the lobby area.

The next stop was the Archives Research center. This section is one of the main areas in the National Archives exposed to the threat of a high fungicide level. This is one of the reasons Minister St.Ange explained why the Research Center is today now fully equipped with UV lights, and different rooms of the building are equipped with a dehumidifier. At the time of the visit, workers of the National Archives were using this research area to also scan archives documents. Minister St.Ange pointed out that no documents from the Archives Repository should be scanned in the Research Room and arrangements are being made to relocate the staff to appropriate offices in the building to ensure a more conducive working environment. As he visited the different sections of the National Archives, Minister St.Ange took time to listen to suggestions from the staff.

In the Archives administrative section, the Minister raised the issue of overcrowding and plans for the re-organization of the office. He also touched base on a new scheme introduced for workers employed in the National Archives called an “inducement allowance.” Minister St.Ange also stressed the importance of storing documents in the National Archives to go through the proper phase of treatment in the repository at Providence before they are transferred into the National Archives. He also inspected the lift of the building that has not been operational for the last six years or so. “This lift is to make the lives of the staff easier instead of carting heavy boxes up and down the main staircase. We need to get it repaired so that it can serve the purpose for which it was initially installed," the Minister said.

The Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture has said that he will be personally continuing visits of the different departments of his Ministry as this is a sure way to keep him connected to the Ministry`s staff and for him to update himself on the workplace of each and every member of his team.
