Afghanistan’s Afghan Wireless says has crossed a significant threshold in hiring more than 4,300 local Afghan employees.
The company has a short-term goal of directly employing 5,000 locals before its 10th Anniversary, which takes place on the 13th November 2012.
Indirectly, Afghan Wireless is involved with employing more than 100,000 local Afghans through Top Up card resellers, Public Call Office (PCO) members, and sim card dealers.
Afghan Wireless’s Chairman, Ehsan Bayat, is proud to continue to see Afghans building and maintaining the network, “Afghan Wireless strives to remain a telecommunication leader and is always interested in employing Afghanistan’s men and women that can contribute to the company’s future. The Afghan people have quickly grasped the telecom field through training and on the job experience and now run many facets of Afghan Wireless’s day to day operations. In turn, they are helping to provide for their families and make a better life. Also, many Afghans that have gained experience at Afghan Wireless have gone on to start their own businesses or joined other companies which has further helped develop the Afghan workforce. “
