Bbosa said that as the incoming Governing Council (GC), the bigger part of their pre-occupation will be to ensure that they deliver the HR Professionals Bill on the floor of Parliament so that it eventually passes as a law.

“We shall push for a law that will regulate the conduct and practice of Human Resource Managers and Consultants in the country. When there is no standard body regulating the conduct and practice of professionals, we find ourselves in a situation were different people who are not qualified and not trained as HR Practitioners being put in positions that require professions,” Bbosa said.

The HRMAU boss said that without a law it becomes hard to take any actions against those errant Human Resource managers that go against the ethical standards.

He added that, “The law will call for licensing of all HR practitioners in the country and this will help to increase on the members of the association. The law will also push for the creation of the Human Resource Institute that will as well train and regulate the conduct of HR practitioners and professionals in the country.”

The HRMAU Vice President, Shamim Walusimbi added that the other agenda of the new leadership is to a 360-degree stakeholder perspective survey, an insight of all the stakeholders in order to easily feed into all the aspects of the human resource profession easily.

“Once we are done is getting the feedback, we shall be able to create a strategic document that will guide the implementation of our mandate for the next years,” Walusimbi said.

She added said that the association will as well be occupied with developing as well as celebrating talents of all its members.

The Human Resource Managers’ Association Uganda brings together over 800 Human Resource Practitioners, academia, Community-based Human Resources, Development Partners, Private, Public, and Non-Governmental Human Resource Professionals across the country.
