Orange Egypt is the first telecom entity from the AMEA region to be certified GEEIS, which proves that Orange Egypt has mature HR processes and practices.

 

 Moreover, this certification is integrated in the strategic plan Essentials 2020 in the dimension titled Human and Responsible Employer.

 

“This is a great achievement for Orange,” Stéphane Richard, Orange Chairman & CEO said “We believe it’s by getting men involved that we’ll achieve equal opportunity and equal rights for both men and women”.

 

Sherif Hanna, Orange Egypt Chief People & Compliance Officer, Human Resources & Corporate Support said, “Diversity & Inclusion is the key to competitive edge. At the end of the day we don’t see gender, we recognize talent.”

 

This certification reinforces the strong image of Orange Egypt in the local market.

 


It ensures a place where everybody is welcome and is also encouraged to follow their career path and achieve their full potential no matter what gender they are.

 

The certification also reinforces Orange Egypt’s commitment to attract potential workforce and discover hidden talents and competencies of all its employees alike.

 

Through obtaining this certification, Orange Egypt was able to solidify its position as a diverse and inclusive environment where innovation is encouraged, where women are present in all areas and in all managerial levels. With the company’s development programs and flexible working time arrangements enable women to develop their professional career and maintain a balance between their private and professional lives.
