The Corporate Governance Award is a platform to recognize outstanding organizations that are at the vanguard of corporate governance excellence.

Good corporate governance has ensured that we have a clear strategic path which is important in business continuity. It has also helped us foster good working relationships with our key stakeholders and strengthened our brand reputation in the region.”
Kampala Serena Hotel’s success is reliant on an ethical framework, good governance, in-depth risk and environmental analysis and a policy of constant innovation.
Anthony further remarked “Management encourages and inspires its various stakeholders including its employees, suppliers of business at all source markets and suppliers to take a wider consideration encompassing a long-term view when making decisions. Such decisions exhibit best practices, integrity, honesty, ethical values and commitment that facilitates compliance with the company’s various policies and procedures in place. This is in an effort to inculcate a sense of responsible business and the broad spectrum of its eco-practices that exists in Kampala Serena Hotel’s activities along the value chain so as to create shared value between its business and the communities or eco-system in which it operates.”
