The Civil Service Agency (CSA) in concert with the Center for National Documents and Records Agency/ National Archives (CNDRA) recently trained at least 25 senior staff and sectional heads of the agency in performance and management skills.
The training, which was conducted September 12 at the central office of the National Archives on 12th Street in Sinkor, Monrovia, was the first of its kind since the inception of the C. Neileh Daitouah Administration at the NCDRA, which is seeking to enhance the performance and management skills of CNDRA senior staff.
According to CNDRA Deputy Human Resource Director Christian J. Jlatuh, the one-day training exercise seeks to respond to the capacity needs of the agency as well as the effectiveness of the trainees.
Jlatuh said performance management is a process by which managers and employees work together to plan, monitor and review an employee’s work objectives as well as overall contribution to the agency.
It is the continued process of setting objectives, assessing progress and providing ongoing coaching and feedback to ensure that employees meet their objectives and career goals.
Mr. Daitouah, CNDRA Director General, has meanwhile extolled CSA for the training, noting that it will enhance the performance and productivity of the agency. He described the capacity building as a revolving process that could promote and improve employees’ output of the institution.
Kaipee L. Newray, communication officer of CNDRA, expressed gratitude to CSA for the training because of its timeliness.
According to Newray, the training will strengthen and provide guidance for them in the governing process of Liberia. He further said such a training should not be just for a day. Rather, it should be a continued process that would get other agencies of government involved.
