Kigali, Rwanda. December, 2015 –In light of the recent media stories that have been circulating, Airtel Rwanda would like to communicate that indeed there are some changes.
Airtel Africa is readying itself for the next growth phase in the continent by further aligning the organization structure with the operating model. We have embarked on a strategic restructuring exercise that will align the business and reinforce its competitiveness in the various markets we operate in.
Our core objective is to create a high performance organization as we step into the next growth phase of the business.
Our People strategy will also evolve to support the future needs of the organization. As part of the new organization design, the company will focus on enhanced skill sets and training for its employees. While the exercise will impact some of the employees, Airtel is sensitive towards them and is committed to minimizing the impact of this exercise on the employees. All impacted employees will be compensated in line with prevailing laws and company policy.

Airtel remains committed to Africa and will continue to invest in the growth of its operations.
