Fiapre, May 11

As digitalization unfolds and becoming the order of the day, Coordinating Directors at the various Regional Coordinating Councils (RCCs) and Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) have been sensitized and trained to adopt digital working systems and go paperless.

It was a “Smart Workplace System” sensitization and training workshop, a nationwide digitalization exercise initiated by the Government of Ghana (GoG).

It would be implemented in the Office of the Head of the Local Government Service (OHLGS), the RCCs, MMDAs and across all other government institutions.

The Smart Workspace Sensitization and Training Workshop, held on Friday at Fiapre, Bono region, aimed at equipping participants to be abreast with the transition from paper based to digital based working system for easy, faster, and more convenient clients services.

Participants were from the Ahafo, Savannah, Bono and Bono East Regions and taken through the smart workplace portal for transformational working so that they can work even from home and everywhere they can access the internet. 

The GoG’s digital working platform implementation was supported by the National Information Technology Agency (NITA) and e-Solutions ConsuIting.

Mrs. Felicia Dapaah Agyemang-Boakye, Chief Director, addressing the gathering explained the Smart Workplace initiative was a robust digital platform designed to meet the varied needs of the government’s workforce with potential to transform work processes and community services.

It is a significant step in the path towards modernization and efficient public service delivery to enhance governance and administration in the country and contribute to securing workplace confidential informations not for public consumption, she said.

Mrs. Agyemang-Boakye revealed this would empower all RCCs and MMDAs to electronically submit their various reports and other documents on time.

The system is already benefiting over 550 Ministries, Departments, and agencies including Tertiary Institutions, she stated.

She noted with this system, working would be more convenient, speedy and enhance proper records keeping.
