ANAMBRA State Housing Development Corporation (ASHDC), in collaboration with Industrial Training Fund (ITF), Awka Area Office, has organised a two-day capacity-building workshop to reengineer its workforce for effective and efficient work performance.
The workshop, which took place at the ASHDC’s Corporate Hall, in Awka, Anambra State, has as facilitators, the ITF Area Manager, Awka Office, Mrs Nancy Ekong, the Head, Trainings, ITF Awka Area Office, Mr Franklin Okafor, among others.
Declaring the workshop open, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, ASHDC, Mr Chike Anyaonu, reeled off the reason behind the event, and urged the ASHDC staff members, to utilise the opportunity offered by the occasion to acquire innovative skills.
“What we’re here for is a simple one – to learn new culture of doing things.
“We’re all aware that by this time last year, what we saw here wasn’t exactly what we saw in the middle and the end of the year.
“Now, we’re to notch it up further – in courtesy of ASHDC and ITF, for us to learn value-added skills that will enable us to perform our various duties and responsibilities better.
“Therefore, I enjoin you to sit down, relax, and listen very attentively for the plethora of lecture series ITF has for us; for certainly, we’re going to learn one thing or the other that will not only boost our morale, but also make us perform our duties effectively and efficiently”, he said.
In her remarks, the ITF Area Manager, Awka Area Office, Mrs Efong, whose lecture centred on the topic, “Reengineering Workforce (to) Reengineer Workplace”, underscored the importance of an organisation’s human resources, stressing that they essentially require reengineering for right attitudes, and innovative skills to perform effectively and efficiently.
She explained that the workshop would lay special emphasis on soft skills of communication, leadership, vision, mission, ethics, among others; and expressed belief that the skills, if learned and put into practice, would enable the trainees to perform effectively and efficiently towards realisation of the corporate goals of ASHDC.
In an interview with the press, the Head, Trainings, ITF Awka, Area Office, MrOkafor, described the workshop as imperative, noting that it would enable the ASHDC’s workers to come to term with new culture emerging from constant changes the world goes through.
Also, in separate interactions with the press, the Heads, Corporate Services, Media & Marketing; and Human Resources & General Services, ASHDC, Mrs Jane Okafor and Mr Victor Obiefuna respectively, were optimistic that the workshop would reengineer the staff’s work attitudes and put them in a proper perspective.
They thanked and extolled the commitment of the ASHDC’s Managing Director, Mr Anyaonu, in ensuring that the corporation innovatively grows in leaps and bounds.
One of the participants, Mr Bartholomew Nwabude, in an interview with the press, expressed appreciation to the management of ASHDC and ITF, for organising the workshop and pledged to make optimal use of the knowledge acquired through it to carry out his assignment effectively.
