The Lagos State Government today conducted the induction ceremony of 906 newly employed staff of the Primary Health Care Board by introducing them to the ethics, ethos, norms, and values of the State Public Service.
The induction course which entails orientation, socialisation, and
acquisition of core skills relevant to the Public Service, is a
flagship programme of PSSDC primarily designed to orientate new entrants
in the State Public Service about laid down procedures as well as
familiarise them with the work environment.
In his speech, the Director-General, PSSDC, Dr. Senukon Ajose-Harrison affirmed that the Public Service like other organisations across the globe has her way of inducing new employees so that they can settle down and excel in the workplace.
‘The course was primarily designed to introduce you to the basics of the Public Service Procedure and become integrated into
the Lagos State team that is assisting the delivery of Government’s
desire to make Lagos a resilient and smart city with infrastructure that
works for all.’ Ajose-Harrison said.
her remark, the Director, Administration and Human Resources, Primary
Health Care Board, Mrs. Ololade Aina reiterated that the Induction
becomes necessary to introduce them to the fundamental norms and rules
of service, as it would be difficult for them after going through
induction to claim ignorance of the ethics and ethos.
further said that the Primary Health Care Board made the induction
compulsory before the new staff are posted to different places of work
for easy integration and quality service delivery.
Programme which has participants drawn from health and allied sectors
will be in three phases of two days each with participants learning
about ‘Actualising the Lagos Vision: Growth Mindset; Overview of Lagos
State Public Service Rules 2015; Managing Primary Health Care Finance
and Accounts Through Financial Regulations; Work Ethics and Core Values
for Effective Public Service Delivery, and ‘Experience Sharing of
Primary Health Care Management System.’
