Lack of support

THE biggest challenge faced by young Fijian practitioners is the lack of support from senior management.

The statement was made at the Fiji Human Resource Institute's workshop at the Novotel in Lami last Friday.

Institute vice president Kameli Batiweti said the workshop was organised for young practitioners who were new to the human resource field.

"The human resource in Fiji is very passive and therefore young practitioners are being informed to step out of their comfort zones, stand up and be counted," he said.

"We have encouraged them to take small steps, meaning they have to convince their bosses that they are the experts in their field," said Mr Batiweti.

He said the role of human resources was different from other fields because they dealt with people, adding they gave people advice and had a special skill in understanding human temperance which included the way they thought and behaved.

"The most important person in my business is the director of human resources because he is the person who will turn the human resources within the company to generate the business outcomes that is expected of the company."

With the theme "Human Resources Practice", the workshop aimed to empower young practitioners.

"They need to understand that they play an important role in the overall function of an organisation," said Mr Batiweti.
