Bharti Airtel has partnered with the largest e-learning provider in Africa, The Learning Resources Management Group, to provide an e-learning program for its employees across 17 African countries.
Airtel has invested in a suite of 500 courses covering accounting, IT, HR, customer service, leadership and management skills from the Learning Resources Management Group.
The program signals a “new dawn” of staff development, reinforcing the telco’s commitment to nurture and develop local talent and groom its employees for leadership positions within the company, the telco said in a statement.
“Our people are our main source of competitive advantage,” said David Ssegawa, chief human resources officer at Airtel Africa. “We are committed in investing and providing our employees with opportunities to learn and grow within the organization. This latest initiative is in line with our commitment to nurture local talent and develop the capabilities of the workforce.
