PNG NRI farewells staff

Papua New Guinea National Research Institute (PNG NRI) has fare welled former human resource manager, Walo Wayne, after three and half years of service to the institute.

Speaking at the farewell ceremony, PNG NRI Deputy Director, Research, Prof. Eugene Ezebilo thanked Wayne for his contribution to moving PNG NRI forward.

He said Wayne has contributed a lot to the institute including policies and staff recruitment.

Prof. Ezebilo said it is sad to see Wayne leave but “There is time for everything and it’s time for him to step aside.”

PNG NRI Director Dr Osborne Sanida, on behalf of the council, management and staff, also thanked Wayne for his services. Dr Sanida said sometimes it is not about the number of years that it is but about your contribution.

“Your role as the HR manager is a challenging one because you are dealing with the behavior of human beings. We acknowledge your contribution to managing human resources in PNG NRI and also dealing with other organizations in the country.

Wayne thanked everyone whom he worked with during his time with PNG NRI.

“It’s not easy, especially coming here and working with highly trained intellectuals of the country and rubbing shoulders with Ph.D. holders and Master’s holders, it’s amazing,” he said.

“I’ve learned a lot from PNG NRI and I’m walking away satisfied that I have given something back to the institute.”

He said it has been a good journey but there’s always time for new doors to open and old doors to close.
