• County secretary urges them to utilise training to enhance competence.
• Public Service CO says exercise will impart the staff with skills for creating a safe and healthy workplace.
Garissa county secretary Abdi Ali on Monday urged the staff to take advantage of the three-day training for departments.
The capacity-building event that started yesterday will enhance professionalism and competence at the workplace and enhance service delivery. Ali spoke at the venue, a Garissa town hotel, where he was the chief guest.
“The trainees will have the opportunity to understand different labour laws and how it will impact their daily roles as HR practitioners. Let us all see the impact of the training after you complete it,” Ali said.
The event was organised by the Institute of Human Resource Management Northeastern branch. County Public Service chief officer Nimo Mohamed commended the organisers saying the training is timely. She said it will impart skills to the staff and contribute towards creating a safe and healthy workplace in line with the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Last month, Governor Ali Korane urged employees to work with devotion and give their all in serving residents. He told employees to give value for the money they earn in salaries, adding that anyone who fails to perform will be dismissed.
“All employees are expected to be morally responsible. Professionalism and adherence to standards remain key and absenteeism will not be tolerated,” he said.
The governor said he was keen on delivering on the promises he made to the electorate. "We must be a civilised society where you do what you know is expected of you without necessarily having somebody monitor or push you. When you fail to deliver on the ground, you are failing me."
