AHRIA celebrates top HR practitioners and organizations

The 2020 edition of the Africa Human Resources Innovation Awards (AHRIA) celebrated top HR Professionals and Organizations at the plush Movenpick Ambassadors Hotel in Accra on Friday, 18th December, 2020.

In its 3rd Year, AHRIA which is formerly known as the Ghana Human Resource Innovation Awards (GHRIA) rewarded top HR leaders and organizations with top-notch HR Models.

In her speech, Mrs Carol Opata Hogan, Country Manager of Instinct Wave stated that if there is any group of people badly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is HR Practitioners because they have had to deal with the harsh impact the pandemic has unleashed on their workforce through the development of new HR models that accommodate working from home, employee appraisals and other employee-related issues that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it.

While declaring the ceremony open, Dr Edward Kwapong, Fair Wages & Salaries Commission CEO noted that COVID-19 has changed the dynamics of HR management as well as work ethics, hence charging all HR professionals to be tech savvy in order to stay on top.

Aside AHRIA rewarding deserving HR Practitioners it also unveiled the much acclaimed Africa Top 50 HR Leaders which recognizes and celebrates top performing HR Leaders on the African continent.
