CIPM advocates blockchain, Crypto compliant workspace
Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM) has tasked employers to adopt remote technology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, crypto currency and NFTs to manage their employees in order to fit work space.
The Chief Executive Officer, Seamless HR, Emmanuel Okeleji made this remark at the 53rd CIPM Annual National conference held in Abuja.
Speaking on the theme: ‘Managing the New Generation Workforce: The Mystery, The Myth and The Reality,’ he said the employees are now demanding to get their salaries in crypto, explaining that companies might lose such employees if unable to provide such service.
“We need to rethink the office space as the pandemic has also exposed an opportunity for people to be comfortable working from home. We need to optimise, make budget to make the home conducive for working,” he said.
He urged the HR managers to rethink on the limitations they place on hiring staff, especially the problem of tribal sentiment and other non-relevant considerations.
“We have to realise that this things don’t matter and would not work for digital natives,” he added. Speaking further, the Chairman, Governing Council, CIPM, Olusegun Mojeed said, “The attention for most organisations and business leaders is changing.
The focus is now on realigning and reskilling their people to add value to self, and to all stakeholders in order to impact the growth and positive business outcomes.”
According to him, CIPM is set to identify the new skills and competencies that are required in the new work realities and relationships, identify the gaps in current workforce and design ways of driving human capital and economic growth through reskilling initiatives and interventions.
President, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), Comfort Eyitayo, said organisations that would thrive in the emerging world must be equipped to be relevant and adaptable to the future of work. She explained that the world is at a critical junction in global and national history, and required to be properly equipped.
According to her, there is need for more sustaining workforce that would be dynamic.
“As professionals life long learning is a must. The world of work is emerging quickly, so we need to figure out how to prepare for a future job that is difficult to predict,” she added.
