2nd Employer of the Year Awards

Tobacco manufacturing company emerged the overall top-best employer company during the Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) Employer of the year Awards (EYA), 2018. British American Tobacco Kenya Plc, who also won the inaugural EYA last year beat a large field of giants including Telecommunication giant, Safaricom to emerge the best company in the second year running.

Leading mobile company Safaricom emerged the second best company followed closely with Kenya Electricity Generating Company (Kengen) in third position. The Employer of the Year Awards, an annual event, is an initiative of the FKE that is geared towards promoting and encouraging best practices in Corporate Performance, People Management and Industrial Relations practices amongst employers in Kenya.

While thanking the winners, the Guest speaker, Public Service Cabinet Secretary, Prof Margaret Kobia called on companies to invest more in people for better results at the workplace. “Employers who provide the right environment, support and tools for career advancements reap the benefits in terms of high morale, less absenteeism, loyalty, productivity, trust and superior customer service,” said Prof Kobia. “It is instructive to note that in the Public Service this has been recognized and so emerging issues in HRM such as flextime, health facilities, counseling services, rehabilitation services, education on healthy living as well as pre-retirement counseling are now accepted practices.”

More than 127 companies from various sectors including manufacturing, Health, Energy, Telecommunication & Technology, Banking, NGOs, State corporations, and agriculture took part in the event whose ratings were carried out by PriceWaterCoopers (Kenya). FKE’s Executive Director Mrs. Jacqueline Mugo called on organizations to participate in the annual event, and congratulated the winners. “EYA provides opportunity to employers to compare notes and adopt best business practices that will enable them create wealth and positively impact society through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR),”said Mrs. Mugo. “EYA is about enhancing productivity and striving to achieve full employment for our youth.”

The Companies were first subjected to an online survey to determine their suitability for taking part in the competition. Companies were evaluated in eight categories where, a winner and a runners-up position were announced eventually culminating in overall winner where BAT excelled.

The criteria and winners include;- Leadership and Governance (Top Company; Centum;-2nd runners up-Kengen); Corporate Performance ( Top;- Safaricom; 2nd Runners-up ;- University of Nairobi); Innovations and Productivity( Top; Safaricom Plc; 2nd runners-up University of Nairobi); Responsible Business Conduct-Top-Kengen; 2nd runners-up Lewa Wildlife Conservancy); Inclusiveness and Diversity Top- LVCT Health; 2nd runners up- Oserian Development Company Ltd); Workplace Environment- (Top-BAT – 2nd runners up Centum Investments); Learning and Development(Top-EA Breweries, 2nd runners up –capital Markets Authority); and Human Resource Practice and Industrial Relations(Top-BAT, 2nd runners up –Eco bank).
