To serve as a Labour Market Observatory/Intelligence/watchtower for the economy through provision of timely, relevant and reliable labour market information.
This information will include:
The beneficiaries of KLMIS will include : Job seekers / Volunteers, students, parents, individual citizens, investors, employers / Volunteer Involving Organisations(VIOs), employees, educational and training institutions and policy makers.
The KLMIS will provide necessary information to guide on career choices for students, teachers, parents and other individuals who need to make decisions on what occupations to go into or what training to undertake based on the labour market information herein provided.
Investors will obtain regular updates on manpower trends in the labour market to guide their investment decisions in light of the available skill types and levels, alternative technologies as well as wage levels among other dynamics. Employees will also find this labour market information valuable for further training opportunities, career progression, prospects for better employment and empowerment on labour matters as provided in the various labour laws.
KLMIS will provide information on the career requirements, manpower trends and also provide a regular update of Job Opportunities available across various economic sectors. There will also be an indication of the necessary skills for various jobs and occupations that are advertised periodically.
The KLMIS will provide a link to both volunteers who are willing to offer their time, skills and resources and Volunteer involving Organizations (VIOs) who need the services of volunteers. The system will maintain a database of all legitimate VIOs who have met the requirements of engaging volunteers hence promote efficient, effective management and coordination of volunteerism. The system will show also the demand and supply of volunteers, thus help to analyse and quantify the contributions made by volunteers to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Policy makers and planners in Government and its agencies require reliable and up-to-date labour market information for effective manpower planning, development and utilization. This information will facilitate skill development that is aligned to labour market demands and enable forecasting of future manpower needs for the country.
