Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation partners Microsoft to enhance digital skills of civil servants

The Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, in partnership with the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) and Microsoft, through its implementation partner, Wootlab Foundation, has announced an initiative to enhance the digital skills of civil servants across various Ministries in Nigeria.

This is part of a strategic move by the OHCSF to prepare the public sector workforce for the digital era of the Civil Service.

Through this partnership, Microsoft is helping lay a foundation for digital transformation in Nigeria, providing government employees with in-demand digital skills for the 21st-century workplace and empowering them to contribute towards the digitization of important public services.

In 2023, the OHCSF, supported by the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, implemented an Enterprise Content Management Solution (ECMS) to automate all its work processes in line with the federal government’s e-governance drive.

Recognizing that the digital readiness of civil servants is a key driver of the success and sustainability of the ECMS, the Foundation partnered with Microsoft to develop a digital upskilling programme for civil servants.

This programme will equip participating civil servants with essential digital skills, fostering a workforce that is not only digitally competent but also capable of driving continued innovation within the Civil Service.

The official commencement of the digital upskilling programme was marked by a Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony at the Federal Secretariat, OHCSF, in Abuja.

The Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation’s support for the digitalisation of the Nigerian Civil Service is just one facet of its collaboration with the OHCSF. Other projects supported by the Foundation include the development of an e-learning platform for the Civil Service, the introduction of a robust performance management system, and a culture change initiative aimed at nurturing the right values in civil servants.

Additionally, as part of its ongoing commitment to building the capacity of the government workforce, the Foundation recently brokered a public-private sector partnership that provided 8-week internships to civil servants across various private sector organisations as part of the 2023 Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P), a ten-month training programme designed to build the capacity of Nigeria’s future public sector leaders.

The Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation is committed to driving and supporting impactful initiatives that contribute to the growth and efficiency of the Nigerian public sector for the benefit of all Nigerians.
