The outreach programme is one of the initiatives to expose training to the public servants outside of the Brunei-Muara District who might not have the opportunity to attend the programme at the Civil Service Institute (IPA). The programme is offered to civil service members in Divisions II, III, IV and V, in the Tutong and Belait districts, said Acting Assistant Director of IPA Hajah Maimunah binti Haji Awang Hussin.
The programme also aims to motivate and increase productivity among the participants, she said.
She made these comments where over 90 public servants from the Belait and Tutong districts convened at the Grand Ballroom at V-Plaza Hotel, Kuala Belait to attend the two-day outreach programme conducted by the institute.
Starting yesterday, the programme represents one of the initiatives led by IPA to approach civil servants across the nation to refresh their knowledge and skills necessary to be implemented into their daily work.
It is also hoped that the participants would be able to achieve an effective workflow that the public can rely on. The programme is slated to continue today, with talks on empowering oneself in the workplace and adapting to the use of digital technologies.
The first day of the outreach programme saw several talks, on strengthening and empowering RAEK (Pillars of Work Ethics) and another talk on empowering communication within the organisation. Public servants also participated in various activities throughout the programme. Hajah Maimunah said, the outreach programme is the second session held for the district, with the first on January 27 and 28, 2021.
“IPA hopes that through this outreach programme, public servants are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure that their work is aligned with the aspiration’s of the nation,” she said.
