Hito HR and Training Consultants is a Namibian consulting firm assisting organisations with human resource (HR) people related solutions.

Managed by Lisa Matomola, Hito is a success. Matomola previously worked as a manager at the people and organisation division at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Namibia for more than five years before establishing Hito.

The company’s name is a Japanese word for people, pronounced “shito”.

Services offered by Hito include organisational design, performance management, job description development, review and update, job evaluation or grading as well as training facilitation and other HR solutions. These services became fully functional and available to the public since January 2021.

The company decided to grant students from the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) the opportunity to complete internships prior to their graduation.

“The university requires students to undergo a work-integrated learning programme to complete a certain number of hours before they graduate. It is also an opportunity to breach the gap between students and the industry and prepare them for the workplace and increase their employability skills,” Matomola said.

As part of the company, there are currently two full-time employees and a student intern, totalling three employees who assist in making the dream work. Matomola said the company also offered its first internship opportunity to a recent graduate in industrial psychology from the University of Namibia (Unam) whose internship programme ran for five months.

Hito has plans to partner with other universities to provide industrial psychology graduates an opportunity to be part of the team.

Students can apply for the internship programme by contacting the office responsible for placement at NUST as they have staff members responsible for attachments. Matomola said the company is relatively small, but in future would like to offer more opportunities to more people who are not only students.
