Talent development

Our employees are critical to our success

We are confident in their abilities, and firmly believe in nurturing potential and empowering our team members to continue reaching new heights. Our overarching Talent development strategy comprises of three key elements - Personal Development Plans, the IHS Academy, and Mentoring.

Career development - Personal Development Plans

To support their development, we ensure each employee has an annual Personal Development Plan in place, which enables continuous learning on technical, interpersonal, management and leadership skills. Our teams work with market leaders across the globe to make a career at IHS Towers an exciting opportunity. 

Continuous learning - the IHS Academy

Through our unique online learning platform – the IHS Academy, we empower employees to learn wherever they are in the world. Through this 24/7, multilingual offering, the IHS Academy provides more than 14,000 training items including a robust selection of health, safety, environment, and compliance courses. Content is available in different formats, enabling learners to develop their skillsets according to their role and career aspirations.

Growing together - mentoring

We see significant value in mentoring and believe it offers employees an opportunity to unite, connect and accelerate their careers. Our programs have been designed to support the mutual development of both mentor and mentee, as they learn new skills, broaden their networks, and access new resources and perspectives. Our Women In IHS Network (WIIN) mentoring program is part of our broader commitment to provide new opportunities for our female employees as they progress their careers at IHS.

We also run a range of leadership programs geared towards the development of our leaders, to enable them to lead, engage and motivate their teams and others around them. These programs are tailored to specific development needs, and we partner with external experts to deliver high quality training.
