In collaboration with the University of Papua New Guinea’s Human Resource and Management strand, the Bank South Pacific Financial Group ltd has put forward K10, 000 towards the funding and hosting of the Strands annual Human Resource Day Celebrations.
This is the second consecutive year in which BSP has come forward to assist the strand. Last year they also donated the same amount, with the students getting an opportunity to meet then BSP CEO, Robin Flemming and to ask questions.
Acting Executive Dean of the UPNG School of Business & Public Policy, Dr Lawrence Sause thanked BSP for their kind donation, stating that this will go a long way and expressed great appreciation to the BSP team.
“The HR division is a very vibrant division. They have the students and staff HR Day, and they hold it every year religiously.”
“They are one of the very active divisions that we have and the assistance that you give will go a long way in supporting our students,” Sause said.
Meantime, Head of Department for the HRM strand Mr. Raymond John stated that the annual HR Day is an extracurricular student activity organized by the HRM student chapter and staff that brings the students together to showcase what they have learnt during their lectures.
These activities range from Student Debates to Q&A’s and panel Discussions which sees invited guests share experiences, thoughts and self-reflection on the different topics pertaining to the Strand.
“It is a very interesting day. The theme for this year is centered around Generative Artificial Intelligence [AI] and the impact that this technology will have on HR,” Mr John stated.
Mr John added that the HR Department believes that this is a HR issue, hence they have selected this to be their theme and hopefully the students will gain insight on the pros and cons of AI.
