Safaricom, a multinational corporation, actively carves an impressive niche in the dynamic business landscape. Forbes has positioned it as Africa’s third-best employer on its annual World’s Best Employers list; only Absa Group and Standard Bank from South Africa precede Safaricom in this esteemed ranking.

Safaricom consistently demonstrates its commitment to fostering a thriving work environment. Therefore, this recognition is not merely newfound glory. Proudly listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange and based in Nairobi, it holds the esteemed title of being East Africa’s most profitable firm, boasting an impressive net profit of Sh34.2 billion over just six months leading up until September.

In a collaborative effort between Forbes and market research firm Statista, an extensive survey engaged over 170,000 employees from 50 countries to curate this prestigious list. The fact that Safaricom ascended to the 164th position out of 700 multinational entities from 43 nations underscores its unwavering commitment to its workforce.

Safaricom’s distinction is not only in its financial prowess but also in its unwavering commitment to expansion and job creation. Leading up to March of the previous year, Safaricom successfully introduced full operations for its Ethiopia subsidiary, an endeavor that entailed allocating a substantial portion of 675 newly added jobs.

Safaricom’s impact on the employment landscape transcends national borders and reaches throughout the African continent. Forbes bestowed upon this company the title of Best Employer in Africa for 2018. Coupled with their recent accolade, we can confidently affirm that they are a frontrunner in corporate excellence.

Safaricom’s triumph, beyond mere numbers, underscores its dedication to employee satisfaction and growth, a noteworthy distinction. Amidst a global landscape in which many multinational corporations wrestle with workforce-related hurdles, Safaricom seems to have discovered an elusive winning formula: it prioritizes its people.
