ABS Consulting Group, an independent local human resource and business consulting company, has scooped the International Star for Leadership in Quality award (Gold category).

Mr Amos Bagumire, the ABS Consulting Group managing director, described the award as an ideal reward to Uganda and a stepping stone for the company to continue putting quality at the forefront.
“Our expertise gained through the years has enabled us to provide the best in management consulting. We work hard to build long-lasting business relationships on consistent high performance,” he told Jobs and Career this week.
“Our works complement our clients’ own expertise as we provide services that help them acquire and retain confidence of their clientele.”
The firm aises clients in the areas of human resources (recruitment, talent management, restructuring, executive development, counseling managers to be good leaders), boards corporate governance training, risk aisory, forensic services, financial services, supply chain management systems and special audits.
Mr Moses Ssebugwawo, the operations director noted that the award serves as a key milestone in widening Uganda’s presence in the eyes of global potential investors, given that this is the first local company to win the same award in 28 years since the initiative started.
