Huawei is looking for the world’s top ICT talents to support its strategy of innovating and building a greener smart world.
Speaking at a recent event, Ken Hu, Rotating Chairman of Huawei, said, “At Huawei, when we talk about innovation, the first thing we think about is people. We will attract world-class talent with world-class challenges, and work together to push the boundaries of science and technology. »
Hu was referring to the Top Minds recruitment program the company launched on its website earlier.
“It doesn’t matter where you’re from, where you graduated from, or what you’ve researched,” he continued. “As long as you have a dream for the future and believe you can achieve it, we want you to come and join us. We will offer world-class challenges, a powerful platform and all the resources you need to explore the unknown.
ICT Talents in Sub-Saharan Africa
Locally, Huawei is continuing its global recruitment strategy, targeting the continent’s top ICT talent, training and skills transfer, and advancing ICT jobs through collaboration with various stakeholders.
In April, Huawei launched its LEAP Digital Skills Development Program in Sub-Saharan Africa, to help advance the ICT skills of more than 100,000 people in the region over three years.
At the launch of the LEAP program, Huawei Southern Africa President Leo Chen said:
“Through the program, we strive to nurture more young leaders in ICT, who can explore more possibilities for themselves, their families, their communities and, ultimately, their nations.”
Over the past two decades, Huawei has helped advance the ICT skills of more than 80,000 people in the region. Huawei itself is an employer of choice in the region. Its subsidiaries in 9 countries in sub-Saharan Africa obtained the Top Employer label in 2021.
Despite the pressure, the company feels it is better able to deal with uncertainty. Huawei achieved $99.8 billion in revenue in 2021, with an increase in cash flow and a decrease in the liability ratio. Huawei remains among the top telecom brands on the list of Top 500 Global Brands released in March 2022 by Brand Finance, a well-known UK independent consultant.
“Innovation has become a core part of Huawei’s DNA,” concluded Ken Hu. “For almost a decade, our strategy has been to reinvest at least 10% of our annual revenues in R&D. Last year, we invested 22%.
This makes Huawei the world’s second largest R&D investor according to the EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard in 2021.
