Capacity Building Workshop for Public Sector Human Resource Managers in Africa
Start Date: Apr 12, 2010
End Date: Apr 16, 2010
Venue: Cotonou, Republic of Benin
Description: Building Workshop for Public Sector Human Resource Managers in Africa on "Strengthening Human Resource Capacities for the Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and the Africa's Development"

Public sector human resource managers occupy a strategic position in the development of a country, however, in many African countries, this strategic position is not recognized in the formulation of strategies, and human resource managers in the public sector may not be professionally tuned to the critical role they should play. 

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs working with UNDP and African partners has embarked on a coordinated program to strengthen the human resource management function in the public service in Africa.  In this context, this workshop is being organized with its main objective to enhance the capacity of human resource managers in the public service in Africa to carry out the various functions of HRM in the public service to improve performance.
