Represented by the its Vice President, Wale Adediran, Inoyo, who spoke on the theme ‘Preparing for the New World of Work’, urged the new set of inductees to adhere strictly to the ethics of the profession and make practical contributions to the growth of the economy.

The Guest Speaker, Director, People and Organisation Advisory,PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Olusola Adewole, in his address advised the associates to build network among themselves.
“Connect with as much people as you can because the size of your network determines your net worth. Get on LinkedIn and connect with anyone,” he said.
Adewole noted that a major trend that would face the work force of the future is demographic and social changes.
He continued: “Organisations have to deal with multiple generations involving the millennials and the older generation. They are all important for what they offer, thus the need to manage them effectively.”
