Afia Yeboah Bediako joined Form Ghana as a Management Trainee in 2014. In 2015 she was appointed Management Assistant and led silviculture teams in establishing plantations and managing forest fires.
Her people management skills and attention to detail were recognised, and in 2016 she was appointed Human Relations Assistant. It wasn’t long before she accepted the HR Coordinator and HR Officer roles. Afia says it helped grow her problem-solving, interpersonal, and general communication skills.
“I was responsible for recruiting and inducting staff, students and interns to ensure they understood the company policies and procedures. Employees turned to me with their concerns, which helped me learn to resolve conflicts while improving employment policies and procedures”, Afia explains. “I see my new role as Plantation Manager at Berekum as challenging and exciting because it involves managing people and our resources. This position will help advance my career as a forester and natural resource scientist”.
