As of tradition, the female staff of the Cameroon telecommunications (Camtel), met on March 8, 2020 after the parade chaired by First lady Chantal Biya, in order to celebrate the 35th international women’s day.
The festive event held at club camtel in Yaoude gave root to speeches from the Representative of camtel’s women and the General Manager, Judith Yah Sunday Achidi.
President of Camtel’s women, Gisele Ntsama Zang in her address, praised the numerous efforts done so far by the General Manager to revamp the leading telecommunications’ enterprise and to appoint some female employees into top management positions.
She said Camtel has a good balance sheet since the arrival of Mrs Achidi on December 2018. Yet, their wish is to have more women at the center of strategic activities of the enterprise.
On her part, the General Manager, Judith Yah Sunday Achidi acknowledged the positive contributions of women in her keynote address that has promising venues for an equal to equal agenda.
She said : « At our level, we will stop at nothing to ensure that we accompany you to bring out the best in you. Just by simple arithmetic you can already read that we are leaving no stone unturned. Out of the 145 sub directors and directors in Camtel, 47 are women giving a percentage of 32.42 which is above the Beijing requirement of 30%. Of the 3243 staff we have, 1118 are women (34,5%). And we will not stop at that. The ball is in your court. We will intensify the organisation of trainings in view of developing your capacities to align you to international standards as we envision positioning Camtel as digital business leader in the entire Central African Sub region by 2025 ».
During her address, the General Manager of Camtel equally said one of their main challenges is to clear all internal debts so as to motivate more the devoted staff. For more impact and results, Camtel lays much emphases on two cardinal points being : Change Management and Customer Centricity.
« Your contribution is determinant. And this contribution consists of you being assiduous at work, serving customers diligently at your job position wherever you work, protecting and projecting the company’s brand image wherever you are, and above all jealously preserving the company’s property. I would like you to commit yourself and fully involve in the implementation of our 2019-2025 strategic plan, the two major axes» Judith Yah Sunday Achidi said.
