According to the organiser, the meeting was inspired by the passion to provide a platform to foster knowledge sharing and expand business network amongst HR and Business Leaders. It was designed to meet the needs of HR professionals and business leaders following their quest to have a point of convergence to discuss current and emerging HR trends, challenges and best global practices as key strategic business leaders.

We need to improve the way we gather data in Nigeria, we need to make sure we are using the data for strategic reasons in strategic decisions to an increasable development”, Akindeju said.
Regarding the issue of unemployment, he explained that the firm has been recruiting year in year out, as at today we have 13, 000 people working full time. Apart from that we are also creating opportunity through various channels; apart from training we are also looking at development proving capabilities. So that those that cannot get job can also have the certification to get jobs elsewhere.
“We believe with this little effort and if the government can do a bit more, the unemployment rate would be reduced.
“If the government can look at other areas like agriculture, Information Technology enabled services, which is outsourcing, give incentives to organisations, invests in these areas and encourage people, we believe that the unemployment rate will be drastically reduced in Nigeria.
