CIPM to Break Ground for New Millennium Building
The Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM), the nation's apex institute saddled with the responsibility of regulating the practice of human resource management in Nigeria, as well as promotion of excellence in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills of HR Practitioners, will on Thursday March 14, 2013 perform the groundbreaking ceremony of its new Millennium office building complex in Lagos.
The event which will be graced by dignitaries from all walks of life will also have as Special Guests of Honor, The Minister of Labour & Productivity, Mr. Emeka Wogu, and Head of Service of the Federation, Alhaji Aminu Bello Sali.
According to a statement by the Chairman, Publicity Sub-Committee, of the Millennium Building Project, Ven. J.S.O Omotuyi “the new office complex, to be called Millennium Building, a 5-floor complex, will accommodate the expanded activities and operations of the Institute and would also be open to use by interested players in corporate Nigeria and the general public”.
“We are thrilled to begin the process of moving into a new, creative, modern and contemporary home for our staff, members and other stakeholders which is part of our desire to rebuild the Institute to what is obtainable internationally”.
Omotuyi disclosed that the Institute's present office complex has become extremely limited in space for its operations hence the need to make use of the ample expanse of land available in the complex for a structure that will befit and complement the existing structure in boosting superior service delivery.
The Chairman further explained that as the scope of the Institute expands; there is increasing pressure on our current office facility, prompting us to initiate the process of developing a modern office complex large enough to accommodate all the Institute's activities.
The new building is a five-storey complex that will house a modern e-library, training and workshop room, and conference room amongst others.
Other dignitaries expected at the epoch-making include Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulure, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, who is the Guest of Honour; the Past Presidents of the Institute as well as Captains of Industry from the public and private organizations.
