IPM action plan to support national effort

The National HR Conference commenced:

Human Resource Management has emerged as a specialized discipline where those who are interested in pursing a career in Human Resource Management need to develop their knowledge base and competencies in a systematic manner, said President, Institute of Management (IPM), Lalith Wijethunga.

He was speaking at The National HR Conference which commenced yesterday. It was organized by The Institute of Personal Management (IPM).

He said,” We at IPM hope that an HR practitioner becomes a corporate leader and thereafter a nation builder. “The role as a nation builder is of critical importance in view of the historic phase our motherland is proceeding through. Consequent to the eradication of terrorism after three decades, we are on the threshold of a new era of development and national integration.

As HR professionals, we need to find ways and means of contributing to this national effort,” he said.

“Our Institute will implement an action plan to support this national effort. Our focus is three-fold. At present we have over 300,000 internally displaced people.

Once they settle down in their villages they need skills development and psychological back up to overcome their traumatic experience and also there are many disabled soldiers and families of soldiers who were killed. They need to be gainfully employed to maintain themselves.

For this purpose measures should be taken to enhance their employability. Some professional organizations have already set up their branches in the Northern and Eastern Provinces.

To manage academic and professional activities and CSR challenges the Institute proposes to establish centres in these provinces,”

The National HR conference always focuses on the current HR issue of critical importance at organizational as well as national level.

This year’s conference will endeavour to stimulate thinking and find answers to this global crisis through the people factor.

The chief main features of the conference are HR service providers’ exhibition which would exhibit many products and services to enhance the effectiveness of the HR function. The conference concludes today.
