The Lagos State Government has said there is the need to continuously develop human resource capacity in commissions, ministries, departments and agencies if the smart city vision is to be realised.

The Head of Service, Mrs Folasade Adesoye, said this on Monday while inaugurating a two-day retreat for human resource commissions and related MDAs in the public service in Epe.

She said the theme of the retreat, ‘Transforming Governance towards Sustaining a United Public Service through the Integration of Practices and Automation of Data Management across Commissions,’ was chosen to underscore the importance of human resource management.

The HoS pointed out that human resources ensured the efficiency and effectiveness of public service apparatus and institutions.

“It is therefore very important that human resource management practitioners understand issues involved in the management of human resource in environment such as the public service.

“The significant shift in critical knowledge, competence and skills that are required in HR practice today will suggest that the success of HR managers in the near future will depend on the degree to which they re-imagine, re-strategise and re-energise,” she said.

Adesoye said it was the expectations of government that the retreat would help HRM practice by facilitating uniform operational procedures with respect to staff records and career management.

The Permanent Secretary, Public Service Office, Bashir Braimah, said the retreat had been designed to ensure collaboration, deliberation and interaction.

“What  we desire is that we operate a single and unified public service which allowed for fluidity across sectors,” he added.
