Plans are underway by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM) to collaborate with The Guardian on talent management.

President and Chairman of Council, CIPM, Segun Mojeed, said this, yesterday, when the group visited The Guardian ahead of its yearly conference scheduled to hold in Abuja from November 24 to 26, 2021.

He said the partnership, which aims to develop a robust talent management, was necessary to bring about better content that would interest readers.

While commending The Guardian on the renovation of its office, he said: “With our large membership and HR professionals, we will be glad to collaborate with The Guardian. This is the first media house we have visited since I assumed leadership. We trust The Guardian and we want us to be partners. For our conference, we are inviting The Guardian to give a goodwill message at the opening ceremony.”

Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian, Martins Oloja, said it is high time media houses started reporting performers and not just speakers without actions.

“We want to explain to people that the works of journalism has changed. The political economy of press freedom is not good enough. The economy is in bad shape and the media is one of the hardest hit. Many companies no longer advertise due to harsh economy. If we must remain in business, we have to do things differently,” he said.

Speaking also, Editor, The Guardian on Saturday, Chuks Nwanne, disclosed how The Guardian has become a full media organisation with strong brand presence.

He said despite challenges affecting businesses, The Guardian has continued to rebrand to produce content that customers would be proud of.

“We are building a network. We have diversified and are now a full multimedia organisation. Sooner, you will watch and listen to The Guardian. These are part of our strategies to draw the younger generation to The Guardian.”
