“It is an honour to converge again as a Team and appreciate each one of us for the various roles we play to make Username Investments a success. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, our Team has been resilient, innovative and dependable.
This has made us provide Kenyans with a place to call home amidst a global crisis”, Reuben Kimani, CEO, Username Investment Ltd. said while addressing the staff members during the award session.
“As our country celebrates our national heroes this month, Username Investments is celebrating our Team members with outstanding performance in the past 2 financial years, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021. Last year, we did not manage to have this session due to the ravaging pandemic and various restrictions.
But with the health measures put in place, we decided to combine the performances of the Team and appreciate excellence. As a company, we have numerous rewards and incentives that we use to recognize our staff members and departments. Thamini Awards is an annual ceremony after closure of a financial year.
The word “Thamini” is a Swahili word meaning to value and at Username, we value each staff member and their contribution to the growth of Username Investments”, Reuben Kimani continued.
