Environment and Forestry Principal Secretary Dr. Chris Kiptoo has underscored the need for a well equipped workforce with knowledge, skills and capacity as the bedrock for national development.

The PS said a strong workforce with efficient service delivery in the public sector will drive Kenya’s Vision 2030 aspirations, to become an industrialized middle income country.
In a speech read on his behalf by Secretary Administration Joel Kitili, during the opening of an induction training for newly employed clerical officers and Interns, at Institute for Meteorological Training and Research, the PS noted that youths who form the larger population of the country need to be equipped with knowledge and skills necessary to remain competitive in the job market.
The 36 interns who are attached in different departments and units within the ministry were posted under the Public service Internship program (PSIP), while 19 clerical officers were employed in the Ministry after competitive interviews.

Dr. Kiptoo said the government is concern over the current high level of unemployment and that through the initiative such PSIP youths will have an avenue to gain practical work experience and opportunities to further their careers.

 “This is one of the most effective and efficient ways of bringing you up to speed on a whole range of the policies, practices and procedures, plus a strong understanding of how and what the ministry delivers to the citizenry” Said Dr.Kiptoo.

The PS told the interns and clerical officers to utilize the opportunity to build their career, improve service delivery and added that the strength of an organization lies in its workforce, and a well-trained and motivated staff having a strong character, and habits based on integrity and professional outlook is the most important asset at the workplace.

On his behalf SA Kitili noted that the induction exercise was important to equip the learners with understanding of government structures, operations and public service policies, regulations, values and principles, and information on career progression.
Ministry of Environment, Deputy Director for Human Resource Development Rosemary Wamoto said that   the training aims at assisting the new entrants into the service, to adapt and familiarize themselves with the new work environment.
