Chartered Personnel Management Experts Seek Collaboration with FG on Human Capital Development

President of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria, CIPM, Mr. Olusegun Mojeed, Thursday, visited the nation’s seat of power, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, and sought collaboration with the Federal Government on human capital development.

The CIPM boss made the plea when he led some of his executive members on a courtesy visit to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, at the State House, Abuja.

He told his host that such collaboration had become imperative because a nation’s priciest possession was its population. Therefore, human capital and such critical endowment must be deliberately nurtured and well trained to help them make their optimum contribution to national development.

Mojeed commended President Muhammadu Buhari for approving 14 days paternity leave for male workers in the country whose wives just put to bed to enable them bond with their family and help their wives in taking care of the new addition to the family.

“Approving 14 days paternity leave for new dads in government employment is a positive step in the right direction,” Mojeed declared. “The policy conforms with global standards. It conforms with international best practices. It is worthy of commendation.

“I’m a private sector person. And in the private sector, we used to allow five days for new dads, dads with new additions to their families, to help them cope. So, President Buhari making the 14-day paternity policy is laudable.”

The CIPM President seized the opportunity to invite Adesina to the CIPM international conference holding in Abuja between November 24 and 26, 2021.

Responding, Mr. Femi Adesina thanked Mojeed and his high-profile team for the visit and expressed his delight at the CIPM’s hand of fellowship to the Federal Government to partner with the institute on human capital development.

“I am delighted about your offer to partner with the Federal Government on human development,” Adesina said. “Human capital development is dear to the heart of President Muhammadu Buhari. He underscored its importance at the just concluded Mid-Term Ministerial Retreat.”

Adesina wished the CIPM and its executives well.

Contributing, a member of the delegation, His Royal Majesty, Oba (Dr.) Adetayo Haastrup, a Fellow of the institute, thanked Adesina for the warm reception accorded the team, and emphasized the need for collaboration, as Mojeed had pushed.

To Mr. Henry Unuakpor, CIPM Vice President, human capital development, through corporate training, is a great catalyst in developing leaders with high level of efficiency and productivity. In addition to aiding employee satisfaction and retention, he said, it also helps in speedy realization of corporate objectives.

Members of the CIPM delegation include: Mr. Olusegun Mojeed (President); Mr. Henry Unakpor (Vice President); HRM Oba Dr. Adetayo Haastrup, the Olumobi of Imobi-Ijesa, a Fellow of the institute and executive in charge of corporate education and advocacy; Ms. Ebun Owolabi, a Member of CIPM; as well as renowned journalist, Mr Shola Oshunkeye.
