Human Resource practitioners must have legitimate practicing certificates, regulator says

All human resource practitioners have been urged to register for the certificates to help them manage their work efficiently and also secure their positions

Speaking at a Nairobi hotel, incoming Chairman of the Institute of Human Resource Management, Elijah Sitimah said the organization has started a regulatory body to help them manage all human resource activities in the country.

“No person shall practice as a human resource management professionals unless the person has been issued with a valid practicing certificate,” Sitimah said.

He added that having a practicing certificate will be mandatory for anyone undertaking up any human resource activities. The application fee for the certificate is Sh1,000 and Sh7,000 for renewal.

“There will be sanctions for people who are practicing human resource management but are not qualified for the position,” said Sitimah.

Paul Kasimu, the outgoing Chairman, said they have been able to partner with other bodies to ensure more professionalism within the sector.

He noted that the move has raised the profile of human resource services in the country, adding that it has also helped them in getting the Human Resource Act in place.
