THE general public has been advised to join the Public Service Pension Fund (PSPF)'s supplementary scheme which allows the pension fund to register members from both public and private sector.
The Bagamoyo District Commissioner (DC), Mr Ahamed Kipozi, commended PSPF for coming up with such a scheme that will allow those who are not contributing to any pension fund to join and save for their old age.
DC Kipozi made the remarks when closing a weeklong training session for PSPF officials on strategic communications and managerial leadership skills over the weekend.
He urged PSPF to conduct awareness campaigns on the supplementary scheme to the general public and more to the public in Bagamoyo to attract more members from all sectors.
The training conducted by a Tanzanian, teaching at the University of Maryland in the United States of America, Dr Nicholls Boas, who is a Professor of Communication and Public Policy, centered on communication skills, importance of involving subordinates and how to understand and solve problems at the office.
PSPF Acting Director of Administration, Mr Francis Mselemu, said the weeklong training has increased their skills in handling management issues, including how to communicate effectively with subordinates.
Mr Mselemu said this will help the pension fund management provide services effectively and efficiently, hence achieving its set objectives.
