- Huawei has also received accreditation as Continental HQ Top Employer for 2022 in Sub Saharan Africa.
Huawei has earned its place as a Top Employer in Botswana for the second consecutive year, as determined by the Top Employers Institute, the global authority on excellence in people practices.
Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure with integrated solutions across four key domains – telecom networks, IT, smart devices and cloud service.
At the Top Employer Awards Ceremony held this week, Huawei also received accreditation as Continental HQ Top Employer for 2022 in Sub Saharan Africa. In addition to Botswana, Huawei also received the prestigious awards in Zambia, Kenya, Nigeria, Angola, Malawi, Ghana, South Africa, Mauritius and Uganda.
Through the Top Employers Institute certification programme, participating companies are annually assessed, surveyed, and accredited as leading employers in respect of their Human Resources practices. Coming at a time when COVID-19 has disrupted life and working conditions for people around the world, the award underlines the work that Huawei has done to ensure that its employees across the region feel valued and cared for.
Says Huawei Botswana HR Director, Thulisile Mothupi: “Throughout the pandemic, Huawei ensured that its employees were a top priority and placed an even greater emphasis on their well-being. “This, together with our other initiatives to build a strong pipeline of local ICT talent, has helped cement Huawei’s position as an ICT employer of choice. “Huawei Botswana is incredibly proud to receive this award, which reflects our commitment and continued focus towards improving HR best practices within Botswana.”
The CEO of Top Employers Institute, David Plink, has underscored the exceptional people practices inspite of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world over the past two years. “Huawei has continued to show that it prioritises maintaining excellent people practices in their workplace,” he says. “In the past year, they continued to meet the challenges of the wider world of work while working determinedly to positively impact the lives of their workforce.”
The Top Employers Institute programme, established over 30 years ago, has certified over 1857 organisations in 123 countries and regions. The certified Top Employers positively impact the lives of over 8 million employees globally. The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the results of its HR Best Practices Audit carried out on each organisation after completion of a highly intense survey. The survey covers topics such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity, change management, performance management, and culture.
