Nurturing African talent at home and abroad
In Africa we are committed to building a diverse and highly engaged workforce and we offer our people the opportunity to travel the world and develop their careers.
This is in line with the growth of African talent across the continent and globally. Over the last five years Africans have moved from being 18% to 25% of the global expat community. At the same time, the number of non-Africans working in Africa has reduced by 47%.
Diageo is committed to increasing African representation across our business. We currently have 28 non-Africans assigned in Africa and 32 African nationals on assignment somewhere in the world. Our senior leaders in the continent are increasingly drawn from a growing pool of African talent – 75% of our Market Executive Teams are African while 9 of our 13 General Managers are African.
