HREA seeks workforce revolution in Nigeria
This was made known during the launch of it 2018 HR Expo Africa held recently in Lagos. The Executive Chairman, Workplace Plus Limited, Ayo Akinmade, advised Human Resource (HR) managers to adopt digital and technology in the workplace saying employees do not have to be physically present before performing their duties.
While urging HR managers nationwide to be in attendance, he said this year’s theme is ‘Leading and managing culture change in organisations’ which would to take place at Landmark Center, Victoria Island, Lagos on 5th and 6th of April 2018.
Akinmade said the concept around the world now is living well and working well, where workers create their offices themselves, stressing that in developed countries people use their phones to enter their offices and when they leave their offices, their phones logs them out and HR can monitor what hours they are doing by looking at an application that shows when particular person logs in and how many hours he did at each location.
He added: “There is a big multinational corporation, they have 150 desks in our office and when we did the statistic last year, most of the managers didn’t sit on their desk more than half of the days of the year because they were working somewhere else and the talking is about why we need to have a desk designated for a manager to sit on when half of the year he is not there, rather if you have a desk and anyone can use it, we can cut the number of desk we have and therefore cost perhaps.”
