The CEO of Citi FM/Citi TV Samuel Attah Mensah has advised the 2019 class of the Institute of Human Resource Management Practitioners Ghana to keep improving their knowledge to meet the changing trends of the profession.
Speaking at the 11th Graduation Ceremony of the institute, Samuel Attah Mensah, advised the congregation to read constantly to get abreast with the world which is constantly being transformed by technology, adding that HR practitioners who stop reading after graduation end up being obsolete.
“Things keep changing so if you are here and you are just thinking that on the day of my graduation that is the last time I am ever going to read an HR book, very soon thy shall be obsolete because things are changing, I am telling you. And so, because of that people get to the workplace with a certain knowledge set and if they are not able to cope with the rate of change, guess what, they become suspicious. Technology is also key to driving the business agenda; information technology is the key thing. Have a way of tapping into the wisdom of the grapevine”.
He also advised practitioners of Human Resource Management to be facilitators of people’s culture since Human Resource Managers are the receptacle of the culture of the people and urged the graduates to take care of cultural nuances while managing real challenges in the corporate world as they emerge.
Samuel Atta Mensah was the guest speaker for the ceremony.
