Practices and Challenges of the Training and Utilization of Labour in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Case of the Eritrean Civil Service
Tessema, Mussie Teclemichael; Soeters, Joseph L.; Abraham, Kiflemariam
International Journal of Training and Development, v9 n4 p214-230 Dec 2005
This study critically analyses and discusses the way Eritrean civil servants are trained and utilized. This study shows that, except for specific areas, scarcity of skilled civil servants could not be considered as a major problem as it was in the early 1990s. The major challenge for the government would rather be how to utilize the existing staff effectively, particularly the expertise of the ex-trainees. In addition, the findings highlight the practices and challenges of civil service training and labour utilization in most sub-Saharan Africa nations.
