How developed is DEI in your organisation?
Today DEI is in the mindset of most dynamic organisations. Implementing a DEI program – DEI stands for diversity, equity, and inclusion – has its challenges because the practice is so broad. The country’s environment, local culture, and statutory environment must also be considered as relevant factors. But the biggest challenge of DEI is not in implementing the policy in the company but in making it part of the culture, and engaging all its employees. A DEI program without a strong culture is like a body without a soul. Being a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company impacts the workforce, workplace, communities, and the marketplace. It offers stimulating and challenging environments for its employees, improves creativity and innovation by incorporating people with diverse ideas, outlooks, and skills, and helps them respond more dynamically to market changes. At AIMS International, we approach DEI from eight different dimensions to help companies design their own strategy by promoting policies, initiatives, and concrete actions.Read more

The fate of any company rests on human performance: individuals’ understanding of the business context, bright ideas and competitive strategies, the sense of what opportunities to pursue when, and the leadership and culture to bring the best out in everyone from the board on down. As AIMS International consultants, our role is to help client companies FIND&GROW their leaders. Board Services are for many of my colleagues and for me personally a particularly interesting focus area. Operating in over 50 countries as we do, we run into differing corporate governance codes and national regulations, as well as levels of development. We naturally take these differences into account and adjust our approach, but, at the same time, many challenges that businesses face are the same the world over. Governance and the interaction between owners, the CEO, non-executive and executive board members are always crucial for the success of companies, whether these functions are well developed or not.Read more
Recruiting culture fit talent in Africa
Recruiting and onboarding the right culture fit employees for a business is a tough and delicate process. Human staff – unlike elements, machinery, and tools for trade, are not inanimate with universally fitted specifications – have personalities, ideas and varied levels of expertise that must be treated and compensated differently according to different outputs.Read more
