The Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) has successfully trained 1,367 of its staff to enhance their knowledge, skills and attitudes for optimal productivity in their various work schedules.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of the workshop on “Capacity Building and Skill Development” in the Public Service Institute on Wednesday 28th April, 2021, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan said the workshop was a rare opportunity for staff to amplify their knowledge on organizational behaviour and management processes as it relates to the Civil Service which is the engine room of Government.
According to her “The Human Capacity needs of staff are dynamically evolving in the Federal Public Service of today in the realities of a rapid changing World. For any Organization to attain its goals and objectives, it requires employees who are Efficient, Productive, Incorruptible and Citizen-Centred (EPIC) which is one of the goals of the Federal Civil Service Strategy and Implementation Plan”.
She therefore enjoined all change-oriented Organizations to focus on continuous capacity building through training and retraining of its staff.
