Stakeholders have called for the adoption of a changing culture in the workplace to match the evolving technological demands of the 21st century, boost innovation and productivity. This drive, they said, would deepen digital transformation and ensure global competitiveness.
Deputy Director, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Enterprise Division (IT Architecture & Strategy Division), Paul Ojeikere, noted that periodic training of an organisation workforce on evolving technology would improve employees’ communication, enhance collaboration, innovation, and overall positive output.
Speaking during the CBN Digital Transformation training for its staff, Ojeikere said the Apex bank was done in collaboration with the Reliance InfoSystems Ltd., Microsoft’s Tier1 Partner in West Africa.
He said: “The CBN has recognised the need to adopt an internal culture and operations to meet present-day reality. The goal of this cultural change is hinged on the four pillars of digital transformation, which include empowering employees, re-imagining work and productivity.”
Ojeikere added that the training would also help identify transformational opportunities to support CBN’s corporate objectives, engage customers using digital tools and services, optimise operations, improve service delivery by facilitating collaboration within teams, and transform its products.
Also, Managing Director, Reliance Infosystems, Olayemi Popoola lauded the apex bank for the collaboration.
He said, “even with the best practices templates, no external consultant can perfectly pinpoint and successfully drive digital transformation opportunities within an organisation”.
Popoola added that such training would help the firm employees harness the transformation wheels and identify opportunities in the course of their daily routines and interactions.
Reliance Infosystems has an unmatched antecedence of leveraging technology, to empower organizations to transform their business model and operations across several industries in West Africa to achieve more.
