NGO: Workers' rewards to increase nation’s productivity

10 July 2014, 08:56

Abuja - The Advocacy for Economic Integrity group, an NGO, on Wednesday urged the employers of labour to use a reward system for workers in order to enhance the nation’s productivity.

The Director-General of the organisation, Abdullahi Aremu, said this in an interviewin Abuja.

Aremu, who urged the employers of labour to motivate the workers for increased productivity, said "managers who use good rewards system get more from workers.’’

He said good governance and management were among the determinants of a nation’s productivity.

According to him, the organisation is running an entrepreneurial training programme to fight poverty and youth unemployment in the country.

Aremu said the programme was to empower a lot of young people, adding that such an empowerment would help them to engage in entrepreneurship initiatives.

"We are running a programme aimed at reducing poverty in Nigeria at our vocational and technology institute.

"We believe that the fight against poverty and unemployment cannot be left in the hands of government alone.

"NGOs, civil society groups and the private sector must come in to help in addressing the problem,’’ he said.

Aremu advised youths to acquire entrepreneurial skills instead of embarking on endless search for white collar jobs.
