The reform activities of the State Government of Osun under the able leadership of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has received another boost with the upgrade from manual time and attendance management system to electronic time and attendance management system.
Since Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola took over the reins of administration in the State, he has blazed the trail of innovations for others to follow in reforms that focus on improving performance, productivity and effective service delivery among the State workforce. With the introduction of the electronic time and management system, civil servants in the State of Osun can now productively compete with colleagues within and outside Nigeria in accordance with international best practices.
According to the policy statement expressed in Ogbeni Aregbesola’s “Green Book” “there is need for civil service reforms that will not lead to loss of job as I Rauf Aregbesola does not believe in laying people off in the name of reforms”. Therefore, it is imperative to note that, this development is not designed to witch-hunt any worker but, to improve efficiency and productivity of the workforce in the State of Osun.
