Survey: Private sector employment intact

27 March 2014, 11:37

Nairobi - A new survey conducted by Corporate Staffing has placed the private sector as the biggest employer in the country.

In the city of Nairobi for instance, the survey found that the private sector employs 51,7 percent while personal business establishments employ 29,5 percent and public institutions employ 11.25. NGO’s employ 7,6 percent of the workers in the city.

In the survey, which was conducted between December 2013 and January 2014, it was found that devolution and the Vision 2030 –the national long-term development blue-print that aims to transform Kenya into an industrialized, middle-income country- had in recent times shaped employment trends.

Perminus Wainina, the Managing Director for Corporate Staffing, said that employment trends had greatly shifted as compared to up to three decades ago when people got employment opportunities soon after graduating.

“Unlike the early 70’s and 1980’s when people got jobs immediately after college, today the reverse is true,” said Wainaina.

The survey painted a good picture of the employment opportunities in 2014 citing factors like increased advertisements, devolution and decreasing cases of corruption.

The study comes just a few days after the President Uhuru Kenyatta assured the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission of his support in fighting corruption.

The President said that his government will ensure that the anti-corruption commission has enough facilities to fight corruption including devolving the fight to the counties.
