Everjobs to expand across Africa
“My vision is also our hardest challenge: getting Everjobs accessible to African SMEs,” Eric Lauer, CEO of Everjobs Uganda, told West Africa News. “I’m sure that Everjobs can bring a revolution to the human capital of SMEs and small family business in Uganda and [the] entire Africa.”
The expansion is needed so that African SMEs can have access to the best talents, which Lauer said is currently not available.
“In the many meetings I have with heads of Human Resources, [this] issue [is] always brought up: the huge gap between the skills on the CV and the actual skills on the job. So I also aim for Everjobs to have a big impact on employability and close this gap,” he said.
“We’re working hard to reach out to leading education facilities like universities to put online quality content from our partners in many industries...to reduce this gap. Downsizing this employability gap will make this talent revolution actual.”
In addition to the employment opportunities that exist in the outside market, Everjobs is also growing at an aggressive rate. “Taking together central and country teams, we are employing around 100 people and this number will grow up to 300 people in 2016,” Lauer said.
