The Inception of the HR Forum

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. Renowned speakers are selected to share their ideas and experiences on different concepts resulting in thought-provoking discussions amongst peers.

There is a shift in the Kenyan job market where more human resource professionals, and owners of small companies, who also double up as recruiters, are becoming more aware of outdated practices that are not practical in the current job market. Companies in Kenya are now more cognizant of the impact their brand plays in areas like recruitment, organisational culture and ultimately, achieving objectives.
