As part of the review meeting, Professor Daniel Ofori, Head of Organisation and Human Resource Department of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), delivered a lecture on the topic: A Retrospective Introspection - highlighting performance review, assessment of challenges, self-analysis and future orientation to ensure accomplishment of objectives of the ministry.

The lecture challenged staff of the ministry to understand the purpose of the ministry to serve public interest, understand the individual contribution and submit to productive work ethic guided by accomplishment and positive and enabling values.

Professor Ofori advised the staff of the ministry to develop a bias for action, to continue to listen to the voices of the public and be creative and innovative in their daily jobs.  

While commending the staff, Dr Omane-Boamah also acknowledged their efforts towards the significant achievements of the Ministry in 2014. 

He, particularly, thanked them for the immense support since he took over the baton, noting that the consolidation of the erstwhile Ministry of Information and Media Relations and the Ministry of Communications was handled smoothly and efficiently.

The minister announced that plans were underway for the ministry to move into its new office complex by June 2015.

He said the individual staff performances would be measured to ensure a successful collective performance in achieving the goals set for the Ministry in 2015.
