Global ICT leader Huawei’s Sub-Saharan African region has achieved Continental HQ Certification for 2022 from the Top Employer Institute after being accredited in 9 countries.

The Top Employer Institute is a global authority on excellence in people practices. 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.

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 the initiatives it’s built to ensure a strong pipeline of ICT talent in each of the countries it operates in, has helped cement Huawei’s position as an employer of choice.
