The Acting Chairman, National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission, NSIWC, Ekpo Nta, Esq. has stressed the need for staff of the Commission to strengthen and sharpen their ICT knowledge and skills.
He stated this when he opened the Microsoft Excel and Power Point Training Organized by Management Information Department of the Commission.
Ekpo Nta, Esq noted that the training became necessary considering the fact that most of the functions and activities of the Commission consist of generating, analysing and storing data for present and future use.
He said the Commission had spent enormous sums of money in providing computer systems and accessories not only to maximise productivity but to ensure speedy retrieval of data for advisory purposes.
The Acting Chairman promised that the Commission intends to run several in-house training using experts from within the Commission and external assistance through Memorandum of Understanding with relevant MDAs.
The trainees drawn from various departments and units will involve practical sessions and a test will be administered at the end of the exercise.
