Institute of People Management Malawi banks on new bill


The Institute of People Management Malawi (IPMM), has asked human resource managers in the country to work together in order to uplift the profession.
The call was made during a cocktail meant to thank various companies for supporting and sponsoring IPMM events over the years.
IPMM Vice President, Alick Sikelo, said, even though the profession is progressing, there is a gap that needs to be worked on.
He said the HR profession is very critical at company level and requires skilled workers.
“We need to collaborate and sharpen the people management profession. This is a critical position as it provides profitability and productivity at every company,” Sikelo said.
He fur the r said the institution is working on a draft bill to regulate human resource management. The bill is expected to be presented to Parliament in the near future.
“The draft bill has just been presented to various stakeholders for their comments and then it will be taken to Cabinet. We believe this bill, once enacted, will ensure that the human resources industry has an accepted code of ethics and that it continues to develop,” he said.
Representing the sponsors, Fred Nyirongo said the most difficult challenge for organisations is to build a strong team.
Nyirongo said, for this to be achieved, it requires human resource managers to think outside the box.
“We need to think deeper and get better ways to address the challenge that most companies are facing,” Nyirongo said.
