The Chartered Institute of Human Resource Management, Ghana held its 12th Graduation Ceremony with a charge of HR practitioners to be more resilient to the challenges of the Coronavirus Pandemic and also hold true the values and ethics of HR practice in Ghana.
Addressing the 12th Graduation Ceremony at the Ghana Academy of Science and Arts, Executive Director of the Institute, Dr. Ebenezer Ofori Agbettor, in his welcome address, called on the graduates to be good ambassadors of the profession.
“Your thinking must be strategic; you must stand tall as you have been equipped with all the tools you need to distinguish yourself from the cowboys and girls in the industry. I want to encourage you to pay attention and deal with issues of diversity, sexual harassment, employee engagement and well-being, digitization and remote working”, he stated.
The President of the CIHRM Ghana, Dr. Edward Kwapong stated that progress has been made in effecting a licensing regime for all HR practitioners in the country.
He revealed that since the institute has attained a charter status, in due course, members would have to register with the Institute and issued with a license to practice, stressing “quack practitioners will immediately be flushed out to make way for professionals”.
The Guest Speaker for the occasion, Florence Mangwe Hutchful, Managing Partner of 2MB Consulting Services Limited, speaking on the theme: ‘Growing with the Institute’, narrated to the new graduates that through her association with the Institute, she acquired a wide network of professional colleagues.
“Some of the finest HR Professionals in our country today, these men and women helped me excel in my work by being available for consultations, offering encouragement and more importantly, readily sharing critical information”, she explained.
She therefore charged the new graduates to join a chapter and participate actively in all the institute’s programs and activities.
In all, 190 deserving graduates who completed the level 3 examination of the Professional Certification program of the Institute were officially presented with certificates.
