HR Certification Centre commissions new training facility to mark its 10th Anniversary

The HR Certification Centre has inaugurated its new training center building, marking a significant milestone as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to provide a safe and conducive environment for both students and instructors, enhancing the quality of teaching and learning.

The anniversary celebration brought together innovative leaders in the HR field to recognize outstanding contributors to the country’s human resource fraternity.

Executive Director of the HR Certification Centre, Pearl P. Tehoda, reflected on the institution's decade-long journey.

“Having been operational for 10 years, we have trained some 4,500 HR practitioners and business leaders, who have since gone on to make significant impacts in their various organizations"

"You will bear with me that some 10 years ago, when we spoke about HR, it was often equated with personnel management, merely handling payroll"

"Today, we can proudly say that HR has evolved into a strategic business partner, making great strides in the organizations they work with.”

The Founder and Board Chairman of the HR Certification Centre, Dr. Jeff Bassey, highlighted the importance of leadership skills in managing both hard and soft aspects of leadership in the nation.

“The Ghanaian manager is often trained in hardcore management with little or no leadership training"

"The result is that organizations are over-managed and under-led. We believe technical skills alone are not sufficient for effective leadership"

"Our goal is to contribute to our managers' development, blending hard management skills with the soft arts of leadership to ensure long-term success.”

Mr. Adolph Kpegah, Interim Managing Director of ABSA Bank Ghana, also spoke at the event, encouraging individuals to foster cordial relationships with their employees.

During his lecture on leadership skills, he emphasized the importance of hard work and the aspiration for better positions through the demonstration of good leadership qualities.

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Jeff Bassey, the HR Certification Centre is the Approved Certification Preparatory Provider of the Global Professional HR Certification in Ghana.

The global professional HR certifications are awarded by the Human Resource Certification Institution (HRCI), USA.
