Technology redefining human capital development, says NITAD
The Nigerian Institute of Training and Development (NITAD), has canvassed the integration of technology in the training of professionals to enhance human capital development.
The Chairman, 2019 Annual Trainers’ Conference, NITAD, Mr. Oluremi Ajalogun, who made the call at a news conference in Lagos, said the corporate world is going digital to promote effectiveness and efficiency.
He said: “Digital transformation is the profound transformation of business and organisational activities, processes, competencies, and models, to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of a mix of digital technologies and their accelerating impact on learning and development in a strategic and prioritised way with the present and future.”
Ajalogun said the society stands on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter learning, relationship, and the workplace, noting that the response to this must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders.
He said to enhance human capital development and boost performance in the workplace, NITAD will hold its 27th Annual Trainers’ Conference (ATC) in September, at the Central Bank of Nigeria International Training Centre, in Abuja.
Ajalogun said the summit, themed: “Transforming Learning and Development in the Digital Era,” will serve as a forum for professionals and practitioners to get together and brainstorm on strategies to compete more effectively in the digital world, delivering training means, strengthening core competencies and fostering new capabilities.
