Nyamira County launches staff skills audit geared towards better service delivery
Nyamira governor Honourable John Nyagarama has launched a staff skills audit geared towards identifying skills of individual officers in the county government.
The governor, while exuding confidence that the audit will provide his administration with necessary data about each employee, promised that exercise is not meant to reduce staff from the payroll.
The event took place at Kenya Industrial Estates (KIE) social hall in Nyamira town.
“This plan will provide indispensable government information on employee profiles, skills and development interventions but more specifically it will concern itself with some key processes to strengthen work place skills plan in our government. “Said the governor.
To implement the audit, the county government has contracted the Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM) in an exercise expected to last for two months.
The institute’s executive director Ms Dorcas Wainaina who was present during the launch said that the exercise will be an indicator on good human resource deployment and will ensure that strategic goals set by the county government are met.
“The institute is happy that the county government has accepted the request that a skills audit be conducted,” said Ms Wainaina, adding that once the audit report is completed, the county government will ensure that the right staffing will be in place and that minimal resources will be spent to achieve the best.
On his part, the deputy governor Honourable Amos Nyaribo promised that the exercise will bring out the best in each staff hence increasing productivity among the county government employees.
Speaking in the same event, the county secretary Mr. Eric Onchana promised the Institute that the county government will support them in all aspects to ensure the audit brings out the best results.
The launch was also attended by Public service board chairman Mr.Peter Nyakundi and county executive committee members.
