Leading telecommunications network, Airtel Nigeria, has announced the successful completion of its employee promotion cycle for the financial year 2022/2023. The promotions, which took effect from April 1, 2023, and cuts across all the six regions of operations in the country, mark another milestone in the company’s commitment to recognizing and rewarding the exceptional contributions of employees.
As a frontrunner in the Nigerian telecommunications industry, Airtel Nigeria has said it places immense value on its employees and their career fulfilment, by maintaining a culture of consistently recognizing and rewarding high performing staff, while creating an enabling environment for employees to develop their skills and collaborate towards providing outstanding services to customers.
According to the company, promotions are done twice yearly, in July and December, and for the first batch of elevations done in 2023, no fewer than 20 employees moved into senior leadership roles, out of whom three are women. One staff member was also elevated to a vice president position.
Commenting on the announcement, Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria, Carl Cruz, noted that Airtel is thrilled to see its employees grow while being more instrumental to the growth of the organization.
“Airtel Nigeria is a world-class company which both implements global best practices throughout its divisions and regularly spotlights employees who live the values of excellence for which the company has become known. We are immensely proud to welcome these employees into their new roles and wish them more success in their careers.” Cruz said.
Also speaking on the announcement, Director, Human Resources & Administration, Adebimpe Ayo-Elias, said, “These employees have consistently met and exceeded expectations in their respective areas of work, delivering value to the organization. Our organization will continue to recognize and appreciate top performers as opportunities arise.”
The implementation of these promotion cycles serves as a testament to Airtel Nigeria’s commitment to fostering a culture of meritocracy, Cruz reiterated. “By providing opportunities for advancement within the organization, Airtel Nigeria aims to further motivate its employees, encouraging them to continue delivering outstanding results and contributing to the company’s overall success,” he said.
Recently, at the Nigeria2Equal Gender Leaders Awards, which held in Lagos a couple of weeks ago, Airtel Nigeria was recognised by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for its outstanding initiatives in Women Empowerment and Leadership.
