It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Ministry of Labour and Human Resource Development.
The website is opportune for you to be kept abreast with the ongoing activities of my Ministry and to be informed of the recent developments in the employment sector. I believe we should all be concerned with the achievements and challenges relating to employment, given that it touches us all, in one way or another.
Today, our country is calling on all of us to be more efficient and innovative in our work methods. In the state of the Nation address for 2013, the President highlighted that prosperity for ourselves and our families can be achieved if we are committed to working hard. This endeavour should be supported and lived by all.
The Presidents also adds, “All work is noble. We have our specific talents, our qualifications and experiences, our aptitude for a profession or a vocation. Let us do it well. This is what is important. We take pride in the work we do. We do it with enthusiasm, devotion and professionalism.”
My Ministry will strive to promote these principles through its strategies and policies; the values of decent work; social dialogue and partnerships; the steps to facilitate access to employment; employment training schemes to improve employability; ways to improve productivity and; the rights and responsibilities at work.
Our website will facilitate this by providing effective and timely information to our clients to ensure that your needs are met. Along this line, new features have been included on the site to ensure that it is more interactive and accessible.
I hope you will find all the relevant information by browsing through the website.
I count on your continued support.
