RSCE Intensifies Program of Skills Transfer & Capacity Building for Staff
The Regional Service Centre Entebbe (RSCE) through its Strategic Planning and Capacity Building Unit, has trained and empowered 217 staff members throughout the year 2022. The training and mentorship sessions in human resources, finance, business intelligence and travel have been facilitated by 45 mentors and trainers.
“Sharing knowledge and skills transfer makes someone powerful, and it is part of our legacy. And that’s what you, the mentors, and trainers, have been doing,” said Paulin Djomo, Director RSCE at the event organized to recognize and appreciate mentors and trainers for their dedication and commitment towards empowering other staff. “I want to congratulate and thank you for accepting this voluntary exercise. I am confident that the trained staff members will apply these skills in the performance of their duties and improve service to our clients.”
In partnership with the Capacity Development and Operational Training Services (CDOTS), Integrated Training Services (ITS), United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), and other partners; RSCE organized capacity building and development for staff members to equip them with the knowledge and skills required to perform their functions successfully. One of the learning and development programmes made available to RSCE staff is the Human Resources Partner eCertification Programme (HRPeC) which equips HR Partners with relevant skills including the review of policies, processes, decisions, and steps needed to effectively execute each action in the Umoja Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
“Coming from a finance background, I thought it would be challenging to complete a course that was purely about human resources but having a desire to learn and an open mind to acquire new knowledge, I welcomed the opportunity,” said Anthony Saabwe, one of the mentees who benefited from the HRPeC programme.“ I can now review and advise on a range of payroll errors because I can apply both the understanding of human resources and finance skills. This has made me more valuable to the team and the Service Line at large.”
Describing the mentorship programme, one of the HR Mentors, Moreen Kobusingye said “It has been an enriching experience for me to work with colleagues and cement the learning culture with our HR partners. In the beginning, it wasn’t easy, and it required a lot of sacrifice from everyone along the journey. I learned a lot and I thank my mentees for giving me a chance to take this journey with them and share my skills.”
The Strategic Planning and Capacity Building Unit organized different events to recognize and appreciate everyone who was involved in training and mentorship activities in 2022. “I want to thank everyone who has participated in this programme. Without your commitment and perseverance, we wouldn’t have succeeded.” Said May Dalgamouni, Chief of Strategic Planning & Capacity Building Unit at the RSCE.
