Lago Ta Retira Time Card For di Uso
Otro Sistema di Payroll Ta Drenta Vigor
E necesidad di punch time card pronto lo ta algo di pasado
na Lago. Tin plannan ta desaroyando pa descontinua uso di time
card, cu lo result den un sistema mas eficiente di payroll.
Como cu lo no tin carchi mas cu lo ser perdi of poni na lugar
robez, lo tin menos chens pa haci error.

Ademas di trece un sistema
mas efectivo di payroll, descon-
tinuacion di time card lo resul-
ta den spaarmento di algun
tempo pa e supervisor. Supervi-
sornan lo no tin mester di preo-
cupa mas pa firma y yena ora
traha ariba time card. Tampoco
nan no tin di preocupa mas cu
balanzamento di time sheet y pa
part time card.
E sistema nobo di payroll,
cual ainda ta den estado di des-
aroyo, lo traha cu "time sheet"
cu number, numero di ficha di
e empleadonan y nan lugar di
trabao gedruk ariba. Tempo ta
ser report solamente ora tin
excepcion. Esaki kier meen, cu
si por ehempel tur trahadornan
den e grupo a traha henter dia,
tur loke e supervisor mester ha-
ci ta di firma e time sheet ge-
druk. Bao e actual sistema, e
oranan traha mester ser anota
ariba time card y tambe ariba e

time distribution sheet.
Loke ta e empleadonan, nan
lo bai goza di e siguiente venta-
hanan door di eliminacion di
time card:
1. No tin master di busca time
card mas na principio di
2. No tin mester di "punch in"

di punch mas cerca di sitio
di trabao.
3. No tin mester mas di para
den linja atardi pa "punch
4. No tin mester di present
time card mas ora ta cobra.
Awor ta firm recibo.

34-Year Time Card System Replaced

With More Effective Payroll Procedure
Punching time cards will soon be a thing of the past at Lago.
Plans are in the making for doing away with the time cards,
which will result in a more efficient payroll system. Since there
will be no cards to get lost or misplaced, there will be less chance

for errors.
Besides a more effective pay-
roll system, the elimination of
the time cards will result in
some time savings for the su-
pervisors. Supervisors wouldn't
have to worry about signing and
filling in hours worked on the
time card. Neither would they
have to worry about balancing
time sheets and distributing
time cards.
In development stage
The new payroll system, still
in the development stage, pro-
vides for pre-printed time sheets
with names and payroll num-
bers of the men and their job
locations. Time is reported by
exception. If all the men in his
unit have worked a full day, for
example, all the supervisor has
to do is sign the pre-printed
time sheet. Under the present
system actual hours worked
must be noted on the time cards

as well as on the time distribu-
tion sheets.
As for the employees, they
will be enjoying the following
advantages by eliminating the
time cards:
1. No need to pick up time
card at start of working
2. No need to "punch in" at
time clock nearest work lo-
3. No need to line up in the
afternoon to "punch out".
4. No need to present time
card when collecting pay.
Will now sign recept.
Indoctrination sessions on the
new payroll system are planned
for all supervisors before the
new system is introduced in a
few months from now.
With elimination of time
cards, a 34-year old time-keep-
ing procedure comes to an end.

Effective Management Course Starts

Oct. 19 For All Lago Supervisors
A course, designed to upgrade the supervisory skills of man-
agement members, starts Oct. 19. This course, titled Effective
Management is replacing the Modern Supervisory Practices, and
is not only for first-line supervisors. It is also for technicians,
professional men and others serving the Company in a staff or

specialty management capacity.
In contrast with the ODL,
which was aimed at the entire
organization with emphasis on
the inter-organizational rela-
tion, effective management is
primarily directed at the indi-
vidual. The ODL team concept,
however, will be used in the pre-
Four teams consisting of six
members each will attend the
sessions for three days followed
by a three-week recess. After
the recess members attend ses-
sions for another three days,
bringing to class problems en-
countered in applying the ma-
terial covered.
The sessions cover job res-
ponsibility, company operations.
work planning, communication,
leadership, problem solving,
personnel development. These
sessions will also be supplement-
ed by presentations by manage-
ment on such areas as Lago's
philosophy on management, eco-
nomics and Lago's place in Jer-
sey, manning and manpower
trends, and labor relations.
Three weeks before the start
of the program, participants
will receive the text book and
some "homework". The text
book used is Human Side of En-
terprise by D. McGregor.
Instructors involved in the
Effective Management Course
are: T. O. Lucas, coordinator of
the program, G. L. Frank, D. D.
S. Britten, O. A. Antonette, M.
Angela, R. S. Berry, B. E. Hot-
tie, E. A. Beaujon, E. O'Brien,
B. S. Whitney, F. S. Francis, A.
T. Willis, and K. R. Kendrick.

Beauty Is in the ELe of the Beholder

A refinery can been seen and felt in many ways. It depends on
our relationship to the many mazes of pipe and metal. It depends
on our sensitivity and even our sex.
The feelings and reactions stirred by the imposing structures
can be expressed in many ways: in words, music and also by
Helen Midwikis, a talented 19-year old summer student, chose
the sketch pad and drawing pencil to express her reactions to the

Lago refinery while she was with us. Helen spent the summer
working in the PR/IR Department where she helped put together
the Aruba Esso News. She is presently a second year art student
at Louisiana State University.
Helen's father, Joe Midwikis of Humble, is more intimately
connected with the Lago refinery. He, too, turns out sketches al-
though they are of a different nature than Helen's. Joe is on loan
from Humble to assist in the training of Lago operators.

Lago and the Female Employee
The word "Lago" means many things to many people. To the
female employee it can mean security, better living conditions,
education for the children, and at times even the means to meet
the mortgage payments on the home.

Local Purchases Go Up
As Lago's Storehouse
Inventory Goes Down
In the past years there has
been a sharp reduction in the
items stocked by the Store-
house. This reduction in Store-
house stock was effected by a
critical review of the items in
stock, and guidelines for estab-
lishing stock items. Since the
review of the stock items, many
items are now ordered "on re-
quest" or on "one-time orders".
Also contributing to the re-
duction of stock items was the
philosophy not to stock any
items that are available locally
- or that can be made locally
- outside Lago.
Two-Fold Benefit
The philosophy to discontinue
stock items which can be pur-
chased locally has had a two-
fold benefit:
1. Development of the local
economy was fostered.
2. A reduction in the Store-
house items was possible, re-
leasing money tied up inventory
for other purposes.
As local businesses developed,
Lago went to purchasing more
and more items locally. Last
year, for example, over one mil-
lion guilders was pumped into
the local economy through local
Some of the items bought lo-
cally include: cars and automo-
tive parts, stationary supplies,
lumber, pipe and fittings, oxy-
gen, welding supplies, paints,
hardware items. Other typical
local expenditures are for sand,
concrete blocks, service watch-
es, mountings for service em-
blems, and catering service for
the Lago parties.
The Storehouse presently
stock over 46,000 items costing
more than six million guilders.
