Even though we are a global company, we strongly believe in indigenization. We also believe in committing the company to grow the expertise in each country that we get involved in. These are some of our programs that help us to develop local content in the different markets that we are working in.

African
Initiatives

In each African country that we operate in, no more than 5% of our teams are foreigners. Besides employing experienced local managers to lead the team, we may also bring in foreign experts for brief periods to work with the local teams and to assist with the essential trainings and knowledge transfer.

Global Citizens
Program

Diversity is our strength. Our company has offices in many parts of the world, and as such we have a diverse group of employees with different backgrounds and culture. Powered by the internet that eases the way our offices connect with each other, we have members from different country working on the same project and allowing them to interact regularly. This allows for useful exchanges of viewpoints and work culture.

We also have a yearly meeting where all our employees gather in one location for a retreat. This encourages a further deepening of company solidarity and broadening of mutual appreciation.

Graduate Trainee
Program

We have a centralized Graduate Trainee Program held in Lagos yearly, where a group of trainees selected from a rigorous process undergo a three months training program. The group of trainees consist of the brightest graduates from the African nations where we have offices. After the training period, we retain the graduates with the right attitude, and place them in an appropriate role in their home nation. Very often, these trainees move on to leadership role and play a pivotal role in our organization.

Typically, these graduates will find themselves sent to positions in technical and marine related departments. After the three months period, we retain the graduates with the right attitude, and similarly placed them in an appropriate role in their home nations.
