Meru Huduma Centre trains senior employees

Over 100 retirees and government employees aged 50 years and above were the first beneficiaries of a training program dubbed, ‘Preparation for Retirement’ initiated by Meru Huduma Centre leadership.

Addressing the attendees, Milton Otuoma of Bellaton Human Resource Consultants, said the initiative was timely based on a realization that many people were exiting the civil service with very little or no form of preparation into the contemporary society.

Otuoma commended the larger Meru county administration leadership for supporting the training program at the county level, while considering having the same done at sub-county level to cushion those about to retire with the knowledge and skills to enable them fit in the community after a long tour of duty as civil servants.

The facilitator urged the attendees to mobilize their colleagues into forming informal interaction avenues such as WhatsApp groups to enhance follow-ups, team work, co-learning and peer-support to strengthen and lift up each other mentally and socially.

Gracing the event, Imenti North Deputy County Commissioner, Odiliah Ndeti appreciated her colleagues in other sub-counties for coming out in support of the training through mobilizing government employees aged 50 years and above in their respective areas of jurisdiction, particularly being able to bring on board those who had already left the civil service upon attaining the mandatory retirement age.

Ndeti said the county administration leadership was considering pooling the little available resources together in support of the noble program, saying with time the training sessions in preparation for retirement would be held on regular basis.
