It is a great honor for me to well welcome you all to an era of people and performance development in Africa.
The economic evolution in Africa cannot be overemphasized. Africa has over the last decade become one the fastest growing regions in the world, with a €1.6 trillion economy growing at about 6%.Yet there are also undeniably daunting challenges facing the continent. Especially in the area of lifelong learning, professionalism, good governance, conflict and security.
This has called for an imperative need for the continent to strategically develop its human capital across every sector with competitive and cutting edge skills in sustaining and developing the growth in this cynical age.
According McKinsey Global Institute, in a study called Africa at Work, summed up Africa’s impressive economic potential and prospects, it started by noting that the continent ‘is poised to reap a demographic dividend’.
More than half of Africa’s population is aged under 25, and in 2050 Africa’s population is set to double reaching 2 billion people. In this decade, Africa will add a further 122 million people to its workforce.
This revelation has called for building a high performance organization with core integration of strategy, leadership, talent acquisition and management, culture adaptation and tolerance, and finally understanding the market dynamics of the continent and its major partners.
It is revealed that, there are now more than 1 billion mobile subscriptions throughout the region. It is expected Africa’s rise will create an extra 128 million consumer households by 2020. The numbers continue to grow with exponential index.
Am glad to say, Africa at this moment is blessed to be associated with The International Association of People and Performance Development, IAPPD, as a human capital-centered organization with cutting-edged technology and vital skills needed for succeeding in managing the emerging workforce and maximizing productivity across the continent.
We welcome you all to the new path of investing in the human capital enterprise for growth and sustainability on the continent.
