2022/2023 NATIONAL SERVICE PERSONNEL UNDERGO ORIENTATION AT COCOBOD

Date: 23rd November 2022

Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) has organised an orientation programme for the 2022/2023 cohort of National Service Scheme’s (NSS) personnel posted to its Head Office (Cocoa House) in Accra,

The orientation forms part of the process to integrate the newly posted personnel into the operations of the organisation to enable them discharge their duties effectively.

The Director of Human Resources, Mr. Randolph Adei, while welcoming the NSS personnel, advised them to reflect on their desired career paths and work hard to acquire the skills which will make them employable at the end of their national service posting period.

“It is not cast in stone that you have to stick to whatever you studied in school. You have about a year to decide on your career path. While you are here, know that you can consult with any staff of the Board to mentor you in preparation for life after your National Service”, he advised.  Mr. Adei urged the personnel to adhere to the Code of Conduct of COCOBOD during their service period.

Representatives from the Human Resource Department, Information Systems Unit, Finance, Special Services, Recruitment, Promotion and  Audit, took turns to sensitize the personnel on the operations of COCOBOD, information services, occupational health and safety, payroll and online payment system, among others.

Executives of COCOBOD's Ladies Club, COCOBOD Head Office Senior Staff Association (COHOSSA) and the Cocoa House Christian Fellowship also educated the NSS personnel on their functions, appropriate official dress code, image building and other things which will be expected of them. 

A manager in charge of Recruitment and Promotion, Mr. Andrew Asamoah Frimpong Manso, spoke extensively on COCOBOD’s Values, Code of Conduct, Vision, Mission, and outlined some services available, which included healthcare, a gym facility and bus shuttle services.

He emphasized the need to respect the confidentiality code, cautioning that non-compliance could result in a withdrawal of posting from the Cocoa House.

The service personnel were also tasked to get actively involved in the cocoa consumption campaign and support efforts at inculcating the habit of consuming cocoa daily.

About two hundred (200) personnel took part in the training programme which was organized by the Human Resource Department of COCOBOD.
