Ooredoo was named as one of the top five “Best Places to Work For in Algeria in 2015” by the Best Companies Group USA, in a special report that ranked companies by employee satisfaction in key areas such as corporate culture, HR management, career development, quality of life and motivation.
The trophy was presented to Ooredoo representatives during a special ceremony in Algiers this month, in the presence of a distinguished panel of HR experts.
A range of national and multinational companies operating in Algeria received awards during the ceremony, with Ooredoo cited for its “efforts to create an attractive work environment and learning opportunities, development and evolution for the employees.”
