Meet the Millennials who are leading HR into the future.
Mohammad Qais Momand has achieved quite a few firsts since he joined the Central Bank of Afghanistan in Kabul four years ago as director general of human resources. When he came on board, most of the HR functions were being done manually and the bank was operating with the most basic HR policies and procedures.
The 29-year-old, who directs an HR staff of 45 employees, has since equipped the bank with a modern human resource management system, including an online attendance process. He is also updating the bank’s archive of personnel files. And he has prepared an HR strategic plan that will be incorporated into the Central Bank’s overall strategic plan and presented to the board—and ultimately to the president of Afghanistan.
Momand is also fielding an employee survey—the first one in the Central Bank’s history. In addition, he has developed a training plan for the 2,200 current employees and a comprehensive retirement package to replace the ongoing benefits for 1,200 previously retired employees.
Momand also updated a broad range of policies covering employee compensation, employee rights and privileges, disciplinary action, leave and attendance management, health and safety, overtime, job classifications, and internships.
The icing on the cake: He is working on a proposal to improve employee engagement and bring transparency to the recruitment process.
