It is with deep regret that the Institute of Human Resource Management Practitioners (IHRMP), Ghana received the sad news of the unfortunate passing of one of the founding members of our beloved Institute. The sad event of his passing to glory occurred on Thursday, 14th November, 2019.
The Institute was represented by a member of the National Governing Council, Dr. Kwame Avedzi and the Executive Director, Mr. Ebenezer Agbettor who joined the family and loved ones to mourn our beloved former senior member at his funeral service which was held at the Ridge Church, Accra on 13th December, 2019.
As part of the Institute’s respect to the memory of our one-time Vice President, we reproduce the tribute the Institute paid to him at his funeral service:
TRIBUTE FROM THE INSTITUTE OF HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PRACTITIONERS,
GHANA TO THE LATE MR. JOHN E. KWAMINA MOSES (1933 – 2019)
Mr. John E. Moses until his demise was a Fellow of our Professional Institute. He came into prominence in the year 1993. Prior to the year 1993, he together with Prof. T. B. Wereko, Prof. Amoa, John Mbroh and others assiduously worked as a Think Tank Group to revamp our Professional body then known as the Ghana Institute of Personnel Management. He became the Vice President to Prof. T. B. Wereko for six years, 1993 to 1998.These persons gave the Institute a fresh lease of life and since then our professional body has never looked back.
On March 26, 1993, he was elected as a Vice- President of the National Governing Council to steer the affairs of the rejuvenated Ghana Institute of Personnel Management at the General Meeting held at the Centre for National Culture, in Accra. In this capacity, he demonstrated immense commitment and dedication to the professional body and executed all the assignments given to him creditably by the professional body.
In addition to this contribution, he also played a critical role in the development of the syllabi for the Continuous Professional Education Programme (CPE) which has become one of the flagships of our professional body. We need to state with pride that the CPE has become an inevitable component in the training of HR Practitioners in Ghana today.
His dedication and commitment never waned until he handed over his role in the year 1998 to a new crop of dedicated and energetic youth in the professional body. When available, however, he contributed his quota to the advancement of our dear professional body.
We will miss him greatly but we take consolation that the Lord our Maker has his own way of doing things. We thank the Lord for his life and also for giving him to us as a professional body. We shall always remember him for his contributions to the advancement of HR Practice in Ghana.
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE
