Source:- Leadership News Paper, Page 18, Sat 26th March
As part of efforts to sensitise Nigerians on the virtues of being time-consciousness and its benefits, SB Telecoms & Devices would host the inaugural edition of its high-level time management summit tagged “Time Attendance Management System (TAMS)” on May 19, 2016.
The summit was inspired by the success and acceptance of the company’s TAMS software, a robust cloud-based time and attendance management application that allows organisations to centrally monitor the attendance of their employees across multi-locations from any part of the world.
At the summit scheduled to hold in Lagos, leaders of thought from reputable global institutions of learning, as well as the public and private sectors of the economy will address a curious national devotion to the ‘African time’ syndrome. The theme of the summit which will focus on the virtue and value of efficient time-management is “From African Time to On Time”.
During the summit, leaders of thought in attendance will evaluate Nigeria’s time-keeping culture and proffer solutions to the problems identified in order to improve human capital efficiency across all sectors of the economy, thereby reducing time lost due to procrastination and boosting the national productivity level.
Chief executive officer, SB Telecoms & Devices, Mr. Afolabi Abiodun, said: “In today’s Nigeria, the ‘African Time’ syndrome has become the norm rather than the exception. It has devotees across all sectors of the economy with institutional and national inefficiency as the visible output.
“As a people we have always excused this away by blaming the unreliable public transport system, poor road networks or traffic jams.
“The goal of the TAMS summit, which was inspired by the acceptance and success of our TAMS application which has solved this same problem for over 1000 organisations, is to question the status quo. We believe this to be the significant first step required to make Nigerians more time-conscious, thereby improving our national productivity level.”
He added that the summit will bring together senior business leaders, government functionaries, eggheads from leading global institutions and other influencers, in order to provide a robust platform for them review and proffer solutions to the embarrassing ‘African Time’ malaise that is causing both the public and private sectors of the economy huge losses in revenue and productivity.
