A major global operator has announced that it will institute an extensive e-learning program for its employees across 17 African countries. Bharti Airtel has partnered with The Learning Resources Management Group – the largest e-learning provider in the continent – for the initiative.
The program is aimed at developing local talent in order to groom local employees for leadership positions within the company.
“Our people are our main source of competitive advantage,” explains David Ssegawa, Chief Human Resources Officer at Airtel Africa. “This latest initiative is in line with our commitment to nurture local talent and develop the capabilities of the workforce. We firmly believe that this initiative will bring in benefits of ‘flexibility and convenience’ which will allow the employees to have access to their chosen courses anytime, anywhere.”
He further added, “In addition to the practical benefits it offers, the program will also build a culture of learning and community amongst Airtel employees by facilitating and sharing knowledge and expertise between peers. In the long run, I am confident this will increase both the capabilities and the productivity of our employees.”
