Corporate companies have been urged to embrace best human resource practices as one of the most effective ways of rebuilding their workforce for the post-pandemic period.
Arjun Mallik, the Regional CEO of Prudential Eastern and Central Africa, highlights the importance of prioritising and promoting best employment practices as a key factor in building a productive workforce and organisations with a soul.
His remarks come days after the Prudential Uganda and Price Water Coopers (PWC) Launched the 2021 Best HR Practices Survey 2021 to Recognise Organisations Championing Best Employment Practices.
He urges companies to strive to create a work environment where diverse and talented teams can create, innovate, learn and grow.
Meanwhile, PWC, Country Senior Partner Francis Kamulegyeya, explains that the data collected from the different organisations will be subject to a rigorous review process in order to come up with useful facts that will shape and inform improved employment practices in the country.
“The survey we are running is a human capital and talent management best practices survey aimed at highlighting key opportunities, as well as sharing best employment practices by various organisations.
The survey will be filled out by employees to measure their point of view, assessing whether it aligns with that of the organization or its departments; as well as create a culture of connection, collaboration, and trust in the workplace, while making sure employees feel inspired to perform at their best,” he said.
The insights obtained from this survey will be analysed by PwC to give valuable information to employers and HR Managers on the most compelling trends under the different thematic areas at the heart of outstanding human capital and talent management strategies in 2021 and beyond.
Following the publication of results of the survey, an awards gala will be held to recognise and appreciate the employers with best HR practices.
