Partnerships with Industry Stakeholders to Provide Better Services
Partnership with Generation Kenya Employability Training for Graduates
BrighterMondy and Generation Kenya partnered this year to equip high school and tertiary institution graduates with sales skills that will help kick-start their careers. We mobilized youth from different neighborhoods in Nairobi and its environs and took them through a youth employability program where they gathered invaluable soft skills making them job-ready unlike most of the youth currently leaving learning institutions. We then worked with employers in our database to help place these trained and job-ready graduates after a 6-week program.
Kit Title Sponsor for Zetech University Football Team
We signed a partnership agreement with Zetech University as the official kit sponsor of the Zetech football team. This partnership also covers other job-related roles like career mentorship for the students in Zetech University as well as access to internships and employment opportunities.
Campus Tours: Training on Job Search and Employability
BrighterMonday has been doing rounds in campuses training soon-to-be graduates. This training covers topics like CV writing, attending interviews, how to fit into company culture and thrive through the first job to a successful career journey. We have been to campuses like The University of Nairobi, Strathmore University, Daystar University, Zetech University, among others. We look forward to visiting more campuses in 2020.
HR Forums in 2019
Human resource professionals in Kenya understand the value of peer interactions and sharing insights on matters regarding the job market. This is why BrighterMonday Kenya has been at the forefront in providing quarterly HR Forums that bring together seasoned HR practitioners to network and discuss pertinent issues in the industry. This year has been exciting and insightful with themes centred around personalized employee management.
Talking Talent 2019
Hiring the right person for the right role at all is crucial for business performance and succession planning. BrighterMonday planned a series of HR workshops to bring together HR professionals and talent gurus who understand the challenges facing companies today and have solved them. These workshops are meant to discuss and share practical techniques and solutions to various HR and business challenges.
Employer Breakfasts and Cocktails
Feedback is critical in service delivery and we are always eager to hear from you what your experience is like, your pain points and suggestions so that we continue to offer the best in the job market. This year we held several breakfast and cocktail events with employers in different sectors.
2019 has Indeed Been Good
These are just some of what we consider impactful contributions in 2019, with your support as our audience. We hope to have a greater impact on your career, your hiring decisions, and the job market in 2020.
