ABSTRACT

 

While KenGen accounts for 75% of the power market in Kenya, there are arguments of failure in delivery since Kenya suffers continued power supply inconsistencies from time to time. Due to this, the study sought to establish the effect of application of human resource information systems on performance of the energy sector in Kenya focusing on the Kenya electricity generating company. The study specifically focused on human resource acquiring systems, human resource development systems, human resource rewarding systems and human resource retaining systems. The target population of the study comprised of 50 employees from management and administration, Human resource, Accounts and Information Technology departments at KENGEN. A census was conducted on all the 50 employees. The study used primary data gathered by use of structured questionnaires and captured through a 5-point Likert scale type and also secondary data that was obtained by the use of a data collection template. Data gathered from the questionnaires was analyzed quantitatively using SPSS which generated both descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings revealed a positive and significant association between the human resource acquiring systems, human resource development systems, human resource rewarding systems and human resource retaining systems examined and the performance of KENGEN. The study concluded that an improvement in various indicators of human resource acquiring systems resulted to significant improvement in the performance of Kenya electricity generating company.
