The Administrator opined that as intermediaries between the Regions and other staff, Management deems the Conference an opportunity to interact with the operational staff, to afford them the opportunity to table their needs and grievances. Management she said in turn will find practical solutions to these grievances. “This we believe will create an open and conducive environment for us all to work”.

She hammered home that in recent times, trainings are not done for the sake of it but also for appraisal purposes. Explaining that the Office of the Head of Civil Service wants to ensure that all trainings have impact on staff work output. Thus, during promotional interviews, practical questions on trainings are asked and interviewees are expected to express how they have applied the knowledge.

On behalf of Management, she appreciated the hard work of all who have endeared themselves to the task like the Nkawkaw, Donkorkrom, Kodie, Sunyani West, Axim, Kenyasi among others while she urged them to keep up the good work as she promised that Management will continue to give the necessary support as and when needed.
