As part of efforts aimed at building and rebuilding the capacity of its staff towards the goal of delivering more affordable homes to Nigerians, The Millard Fuller Foundation held a 3-day induction programme from Wednesday, 30th May to Friday, 1st June 2018 for its new staff.

The staff induction, which also had some existing staff members of the organization in attendance, had the CEO, Sam Odia, the ED, Funmi Odia, the Head of Finance & Accounts, Emmanuel Abonta and Head of HR/Admin & Company Secretary, Ijeoma Paul-Atiyota, as facilitators. Various topics were discussed and taught, ranging from the MFF Vision, Mission, Goals and Objectives, Projects & Partners and MFF Operational Policies.

The climax of the induction programme was on the third day, and this session was facilitated by Olugbenga Gideon, an HR Specialist and Trainer. The staff were taught ‘Leadership and Team Building’, and ‘Promoting a Healthy and Safe Working Environment’, with practical sessions.

The aim of the induction exercise was to improve employee productivity, build effective teams that will achieve organizational goals, teach employees how to set personal goals, communicate effectively, promote a safety culture in the organization and ultimately become excellent in whatever they do. 

The induction, which was an overall success, has helped the new staff to not just understand the global objective of the Millard Fuller Foundation, but also help improve their productivity as we strive to deliver truly affordable and durable homes to Nigerians.
