Human Resource practitioners deserve recognition
June 17, 2018 1:04 am
Recognizing the hard work of human resource practitioners around the country is an integral role of the Fiji Human Resources Institute.
FHRI President Kameli Batiweti says recognizing the effort of workers is something not every organization or institution values.
Batiweti highlighted this at the FHRI awards night in Pacific harbor yesterday.
He says a simple “THANK YOU” goes a long way and motivates employees to work hard so it’s important to recognize the hard work of HR’s from the most senior to the junior level.
“In the past, we have only recognized the lower level, the middle level and the manager level. And so the executives which were the directors of the human resources, the general managers of human resources, they were left out. And so we felt that it was important to recognize them also because they’re the strategic arm of human resources. Everyone else is the foot soldiers and all this other stuff.”
There were six Gold winners for the awards last night while 10 others were recognized for their hard work throughout the year.
