The National Service Scheme (NSS) has successfully negotiated for new Conditions of Service.
The Executive Director of the scheme, Mr Mustapha Ussif, who made this known, said the conditions of service was set to be implemented for the benefit of workers.
The Executive Director, who was speaking at the 2019 NSS staff conference in Kumasi, commended the staff of the NSS for their constructive efforts during the negotiations on the service document.
Speaking on the theme: “Positioning National Service Scheme towards Digital Transformation: The role of Management and the Workforce,” Mr Ussif emphasised the need for staff and management to prepare their minds towards the new ways of doing things to improve the service delivered to the people.
Stressing on the introduction of the new paperless registration system for service personnel, he noted that it had helped in the identification and verification of prospective personnel.
“It can confidently be said that the scheme now has an effective and efficient database that has come to reduce the chaos and long queues at the NSS registration centres predominately in Accra and Ashanti Region”, he added.
Certificate delivery system
Mr Ussif said the scheme had also digitised its certificate delivery system to enable personnel who had successfully completed their service to apply for their certificate online, adding that the timely innovation had come to address the challenges of “low collection rate, lack of proper inventory system and has reduced the stress of looking for a certificate in a stockpile”.
He said the new certificate came along with many security features such as the QR Code, which allows employers to verify the authenticity of the certificate by scanning the QR Code on them.
The system, he said, was linked to the database of the scheme and would confirm it once the certificate was original, adding that since 2019, over 30,000 certificates had been delivered nationwide.
