IiP endorsement, another impetus for MTN – Goodluck

The Corporate Services Executive (CSE) of MTN Nigeria, Mr. Akinwale Goodluck has described the recent endorsement by the United Kingdom-based Investor in People (IiP) is another impetus for MTN.
Reacting to the IiP award, Goodluck told ITRealms that MTN is delighted to receive this recognition.

“It is the highest accolade in people management practices from an independent and internationally recognised body. It has given us additional impetus and determination to continue to deploy best practice people solutions for the benefit of the organisation and all our stakeholders,” he said.

Also speaking, a registered specialist of Investors in People International and a member of the team that carried out the assessment, Ken Baylis said, “MTN is a great example of a company using Investors in People to improve business performance. They have worked hard to improve people management and talent development.”

Equally, ITRealms gathered that the initiative received an endorsement from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), UK. 
According to CIPD executive, Mr. Richard Braybrooke this was one of the most comprehensive in depth approaches to career management ever seen.
CIPD, he said, believes this is the missing ingredient in making a comprehensive talent management approach successful.
Many organisations, Braybrooke noted, are keen to win the competitive war for talent get the organisational systems in place, only to forget the individual's contribution in jointly recognising their career aspirations.
“We are sure that MTNN, who are currently training all their managers and employees in effective career management, will see a marked positive effect on their business bottom line by retaining and developing their talented employees," Braybrooke said.
ITRealms further gathered that MTN’s talent development creed has been demonstrated over the years in the number of Nigerians who have been appointed to strategic positions across various MTN operations.


Karl Toriola was appointed CEO of MTN Cameroun in 2011 and only recently, Mike Ikpoki became the first Nigerian CEO of MTN Nigeria having served as CEO of MTN Ghana for two years.
