The Institute of Human Resource Management Practitioners (IHRMP), Ghana has made progress during the year under review.

This was revealed in a report delivered by the President of the Institute, Dr. Edward Kwapong at the Institute’s 2018 Annual General Meeting.

In other parts of his report, Dr. Kwapong also provided progress updates and highlighted the following:

  • The HR Bill – had received Cabinet approval in July 2018, gazetted in August 2018 and was expected to be laid before Parliament, the passage of which would give the Institute the legal recognition to regulate the HR profession and practice in the country.
  • The Institute’s HR Complex Annex – commenced in December 2017 is progressing steadily and expected to be completed for use latest by the first quarter of 2019.
  • Expansion – In addition to the existing branches, the Institute was able to establish a new branch in Tarkwa and has since launched that Chapter.

Concluding his remark, Dr. Kwapong stated that ‘’we are steadfast in our determination to make our Institute the PROFESSIONAL HR BODY OF CHOICE’’ and thus invited all to come on board as institutional citizens and not spectators in this effort.
