CIPM advocates effective human resource management across sectors
The President, Chartered Institute of Professional Management (CIPM), Udom Inoyo, has said human resource management is an integral part in moving Nigeria in the right direction, and achieving the government’s economic recovery and growth plan.
Inoyo noted that as a foremost human resource organisation in Nigeria, CIPM, is really interested in making sure that the people’s assets are carefully managed and that employees are well taken care of.
He said this during his visit with delegates of the institution to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), to ring the closing bell recently.
Inoyo reiterated that the purpose of the visit was to spend quality time with the operators of the capital market, in order to really understand some of the innovations and progress made so far to help Nigerians know what is going on at the Exchange.
“For us, as the people’s organisation, I think it is important that we continue to go round significant organisations in significant parts of the economy, and solicit for the collaboration of these organisations so at the end of the day, paying attention to people’s issues will become extremely paramount,” Inoyo said.
He maintained that people are the greatest assets in every economy, as they drive every organisation both in the public and private sectors, yet it is regrettable that for quite some time, employers of labour has not really paid attention to matters of human resources in Nigeria.
According to him, extra care should be taken to avoid costly mistakes in the process of hiring, training, retaining, retrenching, and compensating employees in any organisation in order to be very productive.
Inoyo also called on the government to invest in the education sector, noting that if not sufficiently equipped, Nigeria will continue to struggle with the current unemployment situation, as the masses would be unemployable.
He said: “I strongly campaign that people don’t play politics with the future of Nigerians especially these young ones. If you don’t train Nigerians very well, if teachers are not sufficiently equipped, if the schools are not up to date, we will continue to struggle with the unemployment situation.”
Inoyo applauded the management of the NSE for the awards and recognitions they had received so far, and for its effort in managing the assets of investors.
“I urge the citizens to stay focused and allow the government to do the job in terms of driving all the prospects that are being identified in the economic recovery and growth plan, to be diligent, disciplined and to have a culture of one Nigeria,” he encouraged.
