We are proud to have received Top Employer 2020 certification from Huawei in 13 of our countries of activity in Africa, including 9 countries in the Northern Africa region. This award is recognition of Huawei’s deep and consistent commitment to its teams across the continent. Beyond the well-being of employees, it is the importance and quality of managerial policies that are highlighted today. At Huawei, we believe in each of our employees in Africa, 76% of whom come from the countries where we operate. Because it is important for us to showcase regional talents, we want to continue our policy of creating opportunities for African youth, to give them the desire to settle on the African continent and develop there. their skills. We are convinced that it is the young talents of the young African generation who will decide the future of the continent.
Africa is full of creativity and know-how that must be highlighted through training
Huawei has been present in Africa for more than twenty years. In Africa, today we have thousands of technical engineers in the Information and Communication Technology sector, who make up more than half of our employees. These talents are at the center of the digital revolution taking hold in Africa. Supporting these talents is crucial in preparing for the fourth industrial revolution on the continent. At Huawei, we believe that engagement in the tech sector in Africa must go beyond just building solid and efficient infrastructure. Education is a lever of development for the continent. This is why several training programs have been created to prepare young people to become the talents of tomorrow and to guarantee their autonomy. The Huawei ICT Academy aims to teach students cutting-edge ICT knowledge and support them to obtain the best professional opportunities.
A favorable work environment strengthens team cohesion
Encouraging individual responsibility and autonomy promotes a sense of belonging. This is one of our guidelines at Huawei. In return, our employees are proud to be part of a great team that is moving forward: the Top Employer certification is for us the consecration of the continuous efforts of Huawei, and rewards each individual in our group. At Huawei, we have been in Africa, for Africa, for over twenty years. We move forward with our employees, for our employees, but above all thanks to our employees. Well done to them, this certification is theirs!
