ONMA staff end two-day training workshop on Records Management

Staff of the Okaikwei North Municipal Assembly (ONMA) have ended a two-day capacity building workshop on the new Records Management System (RMS) with a call on them to put to use the knowledge acquired.
The training is to ensure that there is uniformity in the referencing of documents and files as provided by the Local Government System.
It is also geared towards the improvement in the knowledge and understanding of the staff in the implementation of the new filling system and records management system.
Speaking at the opening of the workshop (19th and 20th July 2023), the Municipal Chief Executive, Honourable Boye Laryea urged the staff to make the maximum use of the opportunity given them to add to their knowledge.
He noted that more often such capacity building programs end with little or no significant impact on the tasks assigned to the staff.
Honourable Laryea stated: “The Assembly is trying to impart some knowledge so that the Assembly will benefit; more often such workshops go on and later its business as usual”.
The Okaikwei Municipal Chief Executive further noted “We don’t see any benefit for the training that we organize, this particular one, I am going to take keen interest in it, I will be monitoring it to see if you are using the knowledge acquired”.
The Senior Human Resource Manager of the Assembly, Sefia Salifu underscored the need for the programme indicating that it is important for the staff to know about the new Records Management System.
She explained that the Records Management Staff who are key to the Records management have already been trained on the system and that it is necessary the entire staff are also trained.
The facilitators-Walter Anouadaga and Mohammed Siisu both from the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) and Regional Trainers for RMS took the staff through topics like Opening and Closing of Files, File Classification and Migration of Files, File Referencing, File Cross-Referencing, just to mention a few.
