The Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM) has said it will sponsor over 100 students for its 51st annual conference.
The President/Chairman of Council, Mr. Wale Adediran said the conference which holds in Abuja this month will have over 3,000 participants deliberating on digital revolution.
The institute which is the apex regulatory body for the practice of human resource is poised to expose the younger ones considered the most technologically savvy generation to the profession.
It would provide a platform for the acquisition of knowledge and cross-fertilization of ideas, exchange of views on the disruption brought about by the digital revolution and how it affects the world of work.
“The workplace is changing, the nature of work is changing. The professionals that create the environment for work to be done must therefore adapt their skills to ensure that they are able to drive the same objective in that new work place structure,” the President said.
National Treasurer of CIPM, Mrs. Adesogan Ekenma, said the CIPM would sponsor the students for the conference as part of exposing them to the activities of the institute and imbuing in them its core values as encapsulated in the SCRIPT acronym which represents Service, Creativity, Results, Integrity, Professionalism and Team Work.
Vice-President of the CIPM, Mrs. Titilayo Akisanya, said the conference would promote and encourage the development of the next generation of HR practitioners not only in Nigeria but in Africa.
