Birches Group is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with Afric Staff based in Douala, Cameroon. Afric Staff is an independent human resources consultancy that specializes in human resource issues in Africa. They work in various sectors and assist companies in the management of strategies and human resources policies. Afric Staff specializes in the areas of recruitment, training, interim management, salary inquiries, online testing, and human resource consulting.
Under this partnership, Afric Staff will co-sponsor Birches’ multisector and NGO survey and help promote survey participation to all their clients and other entities in Cameroon. Together, both entities will also be exploring possible compensation management training events, webinars and other activities to provide professional development opportunities for HR practitioners in Cameroon.
In commenting on the partnership, Jules Peter Mandong, CEO of Afric Staff, said
Remuneration issues are still a major problem for Cameroonian companies, which in general, have trouble attracting and retaining talent. With the AFRIC STAFF / BIRCHES GROUP partnership, companies will gain better insight on market practices through salary surveys and compensation studies. They will be able to better adjust their strategies in terms of attracting, motivating and retaining talents. We are convinced that the presence of Birches Group via its local partner AFRIC STAFF will revolutionize compensation practices in Cameroon. The companies that responded to AFRIC STAFF’s invitation to the Birches Group roundtable held last August were amazed by the simplicity and effectiveness offered by the Birches Group methodology and its “Indigo” platform.
Yanna Faye Ferrera, Account Executive for Private Sector Business Development for Birches Group, added:
Birches Group’s visit to Douala, Cameroon last August 2019 officially kickstarted our partnership with AFRIC STAFF. They’ve been a collaborative partner since 2018 but having to personally work with them during our trip showed us just how capable, established and knowledgeable AFRIC STAFF is in the Cameroonian market. We look forward to building the Birches Group presence more through our surveys and other services in the country, through the help and support of our reliable partner, AFRIC STAFF.
