CONYERS — The Georgia Local Government Personnel Association (GLGPA) has awarded the Rockdale County Department of Human Resources for the first time its 2014 Agency Achievement Award for Excellence in Human Resources Management.

Each year, GLGPA recognizes two human resources programs – a small agency (under 500 employees) and a large agency (more than 500 employees). Rockdale County is the recipient of the association’s Large Agency Award.

The award spotlights the overall quality, contributions and accomplishments of Georgia’s top-performing human resources programs.

“Recognition is always nice, but it is very special when your efforts are recognized by your peers,” Human Resources Director Darryl Bowie said. “I am personally appreciative to the Rockdale County HR staff. I have been in HR management for over 25 years and the team at Rockdale County is as good as it gets.

“This team is tirelessly dedicated to establishing our department as a model for excellence. We realize these efforts would not be possible without the support of employees, managers and our commissioners.”

On Nov. 25, the Board of Commissioners publicly recognized the department for receiving the award.

“This type of recognition is a huge example of effective leadership and management style moving this county forward,” Chairman Richard Oden said. “To be No. 1 in the state of Georgia at this level is worth celebrating, and I commend HR for their commitment to serving our county employees.”

Since 1975, GLGPA has promoted professional personnel management practices throughout local government in Georgia. With 348 members from cities, counties and agencies across the state, GLGPA provides a forum to exchange ideas and accomplishments and share issues affecting human resources programs in Georgia. The association also provides continuing education opportunities to its membership and encourages the establishment of professional personnel management systems in local government.

Human resources minister must be from Umno to stop discrimination, says delegate

Umno should take back the human resources minister’s post to address discrimination against the Malays in the private sector said an Umno Youth delegate.

Datuk Shaiful Hazizy Zainol Abidin said the ministerial portfolio, which is currently held by Umno’s Barisan Nasional partner, Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP), should be returned to the Malay party to fight for the Malay agenda.

“We are the biggest race here but our salaries are the lowest,” he said in citing a 2012 academic study that purportedly found private sector employers preferred to hire non-Malays.

“Some conglomerates and companies in the private sector are not interested in helping redress the inbalance in the social economic strata.

“What do the Malays lack? They are smart, mild-mannered, hardworking and respectful,” he said while debating on the economic motion at the Umno general assembly today.

SUPP deputy president Datuk Seri Richard Riot is the current human resources minister. The portfolio had also been previously held by ministers from BN component parties MCA and MIC.

Shaiful Hazizy also proposed that the New Economic Model (NEP) should be revived and given a new lease of life to boost Malay economic progress.

“Maybe we can call it NEP 2.0 which is more meaningful to people than Bersih 2.0,” he said in a swipe at the electoral reform group.

Under NEP 2.0, he proposed for the abolishment of any economic policies that does not help the growth of the Malay community.

He also mooted programmes that encourage the creation of Malay entrepreneurs and wanted more CEO positions in the corporate sector be reserved for Malays and Indians, as he claimed they are currently mostly dominated by the Chinese. – November 29, 2014.
