120 Swazis di­rectly em­ployed by Swazi mo­bile

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

The no­tion that for­eign­ers make bet­ter em­ploy­ees than Swazis has been dis­pelled by Swazi Mo­bile as no for­eigner is hired by the com­pany, presently. On in­cep­tion, the com­pany com­mit­ted to hir­ing lo­cals and phase out for­eign­ers grad­u­ally as many of the skilled em­ploy­ees hired were Swazis. It was re­vealed that even with the Swazi Mo­bile Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tres, the em­ploy­ees hired were trained and re­de­ployed back to their com­mu­ni­ties. Gamedze said,“In Pigg’s Peak we hired peo­ple from the sur­round­ing ar­eas, trained them and then de­ployed them back to work with their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.” Gamedze fur­ther dis­closed, “We have even re­alised with the in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies we work with that they have a pool of skilled Swazis work­ing there which proves that Swazis are skilled but be­cause of lim­ited op­por­tu­ni­ties lo­cally, they crossed the bor­der for em­ploy­ment and bet­ter pay. Swazi mo­bile has un­locked the Swazi skills au­dit that is lit­tered around the world with the open­ing of the com­pany.”
