Human resource managers needed for national devt – Alban Bagbin
Experts to manage the country’s human resources to suit the national developmental agenda has become critical in the current era, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has said.
According to him, Ghana has done little to harness the pool of resources to guide development.
Mr Bagbin said this while addressing the Ghana Institute of Management (GIM) members when they called on him in parliament on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
The council members were in parliament to deliberate with the speaker on varied issues bothering the education sector, especially tertiary education and the development of management related courses.
The speaker explained that for societies to attain maximum efficiency in their developmental drive, they must pay critical attention to human resource management.
He tasked GIM and other institutions to develop special management courses for both undergraduates and professionals to boost their management capabilities, which is key to nation building.
“Very soon, parliament will collaborate with key institutions that offer management courses to help build the capacities of legislators and staff of the parliamentary service,” he added.
The leader of the delegation and president of the institute, Dr Kwame Antwi-Boasiako, equally acknowledged the role of management in a country’s success.
Dr Antwi-Boasiako assured the speaker that already the institute was neck-deep in the organisation of training programmes, seminars and workshops, among others.
The initiatives are all geared towards the improvement of the quality of leadership in the country.
He then announced that the institute has decided to confer an honorary fellowship on Mr Bagbin at a future ceremony due to his leadership credentials over the years.
