FKE

The Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) on Thursday 25th June 2020 launched its first training programme since the first COVID -19 case was reported. This comes against the backdrop that employers globally have reported operational challenges arising from COVID -19. A survey conducted by FKE in April 2020 showed that employers are struggling with how to manage their contractual obligations and how to survive beyond the pandemic.

In response to these needs and feedback from members, FKE put in place various initiatives including;

• Advocacy on policy and taxation measures to cushion the industry among other direct interventions

• Entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Tripartite Social Partners to enhance social dialogue for protection of enterprises and jobs on a win - win basis

• Hosting free 11 Webinars on emerging issues to aid and guide members through this process • Developing and issuing Protocols and Guidelines to guide employers on safe return to work

• Launch of virtual training for capacity development and reskilling of employees which will be a critical success factor in determining business recovery

While launching this first virtual training programme on “Managing Employment Contracts During and Post COVID - 19”, Mrs. Jacqueline Mugo, the Executive Director, FKE emphasised on the need for businesses to quickly assess and adopt appropriate capacity development plans to bridge the identified gaps.

The online course content presented by Ms. Grace Kanyiri, the Head of Industrial Relations and Legal Services at FKE captured the various types of contracts, employer obligations and the emerging trends and challenges in the management of these contracts during the pandemic period and beyond.

The course will run on a subsidised rate comprising three modules as follows;

Module 1- Types of Employment Contracts & Implications during and after COVID-19 Date: 25th June 2020

Module 2 – Approaches & Practices in managing Employment contracts. Date: 02nd July 2020

Module 3 – Separation of Parties in Employment contracts. Date: 09th July, 2020 Time: All to run between 10.00a.m. – 12 noon.

This first class attracted one hundred and forty (140) participants drawn from FKE membership and other stakeholders. The Federation of Kenya Employers will continue to offer innovative Learning and Development (L&D) programs to meet the needs of the enterprises and minimise risk of exposure. A full list of FKE Virtual Masterclass sessions will soon be provided on our website www.fke-kenya.org.
