My submission in this regard is that workforce training/seminar should be a 360° engagement with keen respect to approach, content and delivery. It has to be all encompassing, and holistic. We cannot longer deliver trainings/seminars merely on the platform of information. No! We have to relocate our professional base from the point of information to that of transformation, and from presentation to impartation. This much needed shift in our L&D/Training paradigm would be turning point in workforce capacity building in Nigeria.
Career Advancement, Career Growth, Career Development, or Career Progression – whatever you call it – it is about making a continuous upward movement in a chosen career path or field. A resolve to an ever growing career prospects and progress is a very good one especially if you have many years ahead of you to make it come true. What knocks me off is seeing so many young energetic people all over with such aspiration but not taking the expected or the required steps towards achieving that.
All forms of Staff/Workforce Development programmes ought to trail the path purpose and planning, especially Training and Learning Development. Over the years, I have observed how the HR Managers and Learning & Development Managers often leave the matters of Workforce Training in the hands of training vendors, subordinates and circumstances.
