E-worker skills programme will allow women to work from home: CSC

The Civil Service Commission (CSC), the Ministry of Transport and Communication and the National Center for Information and Technology (NCIT) held discussions today on introducing a programme to allow civil servants to work from home.

Establishing mechanisms to allow women to work from home was one of President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom’s key campaign pledges.

The ‘E worker skills programme’ will familiarize civil servants with information and communication technology, CSC President Dr Mohamed Latheef said.

“Civil servants, from those at the lowest level to the highest levels, must be familiar with ICT [information and communication technology]. ICT is literacy of the work place,” Latheef said.
