While declaring the training open the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Bashir Nura Alkali who was represented by the Director Human Resource Management, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Aliyu Abudulahi said organizations that were not investing in the wellbeing of their staff could be losing top talents and skills, stressing that a healthy workforce and a sense of wellbeing increases productivity and innovation, on this note the Ministry deemed it necessary to organize this training for its staff.
Nura Alkali noted that the mind-set of officers must be positive and for that to happen, officers need to be healthy to deliver. He Said “If the mind and body are not together, we keep getting negative reports. A healthy work force is a productive work force.”
