Human Resource Management Professionals Examinations Board (HRMPEB) will be seeking Sh1.5 billion for implementation of its newly unveiled 2023-2027 strategic plan
The HR exams body says that the funds will be from government funding, internally and development partners.
Among the changes lined up in the strategic plan will see HRMPEB rebrand its corporate image and create awareness to enhance visibility of the board locally and globally.
According the board, the plan has been developed in adherence to the mandate and functions of the board as outlined in section 16(1) of the Human Resource Management Professionals Act.
“We are certain that the implementation of these strategies will broaden the boards products and services to meet the changing market needs and growth to cover the local and global markets,” said HRMPEB chairperson Sharon Kisire.
This will be the second strategic plan for HRMPEB.
It establishes the strategic direction and provides a framework for monitoring and evaluation of performance.
Kisire added that there has been a surge in monitoring the employees in their work place.
She pointed out that with the growing number of hybrid workers, HR managers are often unable to scrutinise every single employee and their work performance.
This lack of personal interaction has led to a surge in employee monitoring techniques that have given birth to yet another set of trends in HRM.
“Keeping track of work and performance, attendance, and leave days, are just a portion of employee monitoring practices," she said.
HRMPEB CEO Nicholas Kanisa said that the board commits to implement the strategic plan by providing the required human and financial resources and providing oversight through monitoring and evaluation of performance.
“HRMPEB intends to launch its brand and corporate image which will create awareness to enhance visibility of the board locally and Globally,” said Kanisa.
They were speaking when, HRMPEB certified 753 finalists consisting of 584 Females and 169 Males. The finalist has been gazetted in Kenya gazette.
The Human Resource Management Professionals Examinations Board is the only entity in Kenya empowered and mandated to certify HR practitioners through official gazette notices.
As at January data from the Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM), the regulator of the profession, estimates only 17,000 of the over 30,000 HR professionals operating in the country are certified to practice the trade.
The law requires that HR professionals get a practising certificate as an indication that they have attained the necessary skills in a bid to weed out quacks.
