The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has inaugurated four new standards on Human Resources (HR) to further enhance human capacity in line with stipulated best practices prescribed by the International Standards Organisation (ISO).

They include NIS ISO 30400: 2016 – Human Resource Management- Vocabulary, NIS ISO 30405:2016 – Human Resource management – Guidelines on Recruitment, NIS ISO 30408: 2016- Human Resource Management – Guideline on Human Governance and NIS ISO 30409:2018 – Human Resource Management- Workforce Planning respectively.

SON hinted that other published standards would be made available after going through the approval process of the Standards Council.

The Director-General of SON, Osita Aboloma, who stated this in a presentation at the CIPM conference held recently in Abuja, explained that the standards if well implemented would help to build capacities and capabilities of the Nigeria’s work force.

The inauguration was performed by the Head of Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, and President (CIPM), Udom Inoyo.

Represented by a director in the organisation, Richard Agu, the SON boss noted that the move would also buttress the fact that human beings are the most important assets in every organisation.

Aboloma said: “It is my candid belief that these four standards, if implemented, will have the potential to add value to both public and private organisations by getting the human capital contribution right.”
