LASG tasks work­ers to im­prove on strate­gic ad­min­is­tra­tive skills

Read riot acts to health work­ers over poor ser­vice de­liv­ery

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - APPOINTMENTS - By Gbenga Salau and Bankole Orim­isan

LA­GOS State Gov­ern­ment has urged its civil ser­vants to im­prove on strate­gic as­sets of tech­ni­cal, ad­min­is­tra­tive and hu­man be­havioural skills to trans­form the work­force to a more dy­namic, ef­fec­tive crop of pub­lic ser­vants.

The Com­mis­sioner for Es­tab­lish­ment, Train­ing and Pen­sions, Dr. Ak­in­tola Ben­son Oke, de­scribed hu­man cap­i­tal re­sources as strate­gic as­sets that bring com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tages to or­ga­ni­za­tions through ef­fec­tive man­age­rial and or­ga­ni­za­tional prow­ess.

Oke, who was speak­ing at a train­ing ses­sion on ‘Man­age­rial Skills And Per­sonal Ef­fec­tive­ness’, or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with Messrs Hu­man Cap­i­tal Man­age­ment and So­lu­tion Lim­ited in Ikeja said that it was time for the work­force to em­brace self-de­vel­op­ment for the ac­tu­al­iza­tion of the State’s cor­po­rate goals.

The Com­mis­sioner noted that in­di­vid­ual and or­gan­i­sa­tional goals could be fast­tracked through lead­er­ship at­tributes demon­strated by in­sti­tu­tional man­agers in the La­gos State Pub­lic Ser­vice with the bot­tom-to-top ap­proach of oper­a­tion.

Mean­while, the state’s com­mis­sioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, has threat­ened to sanc­tion health work­ers who failed to abide by the ethics of the pro­fes­sion and the state ser­vice char­ter aimed at pro­mot­ing qual­ity ser­vice de­liv­ery in the sec­tor.

Speak­ing at the launch of ser­vice char­ter for three health fa­cil­i­ties in La­gos, Idris main­tained that the min­istry is in the fore­front of health work­ers pro­vid­ing qual­ity ser­vices.

He said all health work­ers in the state must at all time pro­vide qual­ity ser­vices to pa­tients, as dic­tated by the pro­fes­sion and the state serv- ice chat­ter, while those who did not com­ply will be sanc­tioned ap­pro­pri­ately.

His words: “In spite of the giant strides made how­ever, the Health Fam­ily still has a lot to ad­dress in terms of the pub­lic per­cep­tion of our ser­vices which re­mains largely be­low par.

A sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of La­gos res­i­dents still seek our ser­vices as they be­lieve the pub­lic sec­tor for two main rea­sons: the rel­e­vant tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise in terms of plethora of spe­cial­ists as well as gen­eral af­ford­abil­ity of ser­vices in con­trast to the pri­vate sec­tor.
