FKE

The Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) and BUSINESSAfrica- Employers Confederation (BUSINESSAfrica) held a successful Africa Employers’ Conference at the Sarova Whitesands Hotel in Mombasa, Kenya on 26th and 27th July 2019.

More than 200 FKE members, government representatives, representatives of the International community, partners in Africa, trade unions and industry captains attended the event. The conference was an opportunity for FKE members and stakeholders to deliberate on the emerging issues in the rapidly changing world.

Guided by the theme; “Shaping the Future of Work and Enterprises in Africa,” the interactions generated lively discussion and practical solutions to challenges facing employers, employers associations and business leaders.

The Federation was privileged to have representation of its tripartite social partners by the presence of Hon. Abdul Bahari Ali, the chief administrative secretary at the Ministry of Labour & Social Protection, Eng. Peter Tum, Principal Secretary, State Department of Labour, and the Secretary General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU-K) Dr. Francis Atwoli.

Their presence enriched the deliberations that focused on legal and regulatory reforms in the Kenya labour sector, acceleration of job creation, managing labour migration, enriching skills in the labour sector and providing insights on the Industrial Relations Charter for the Future of Work.

Our international partners and guests included the International Labour Organization(ILO), Ms. Cynthia Samuel-Olonjuwon, Assistant Director General and Regional Director, Mr Roberto Suárez Santos, Secretary General International Organisation of Employers (IOE), members of BUSINESSAfrica (Lesotho, Tanzania, Uganda and Algeria), El-Mahfoudh Megateli, Secretary General, General Confederation of Enterprises of Algeria, and IOE Vice President for Africa, and China Enterprise Confederation (CEC), Mr. Zhu Hongren, Executive Vice Chairman and Director. They ensured that the opinions of employers across the continent were well represented.

FKE 60TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

For six decades, FKE has strategically supported enterprises to grow and create employment. We have offered to our members exceptional services and created a platform for advocacy of key concerns of employers in the areas of employment law and practice, labour relations, skills development and policy issues affecting business.

The 60th Anniversary provided an opportunity for us to celebrate with our members and partners and create new impetus for the journey ahead in a rapidly changing world. As we dedicate this year to celebrate FKE’s achievements, we held a gala dinner on the 26th of July at the Sarova Whitesands Hotel in Mombasa, where we recognised founding members and past chairmen and leaders who have helped us achieve our success over the years.
