Technology & Digital: “The "Big Four" tech startup ecosystems in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Egypt continue to witness moderate growth.

IT consulting companies, especially those providing IT as a Service (ITaaS), are leading the charge in recruiting technology talent across Africa.. “

Human Resources: “Even in uncertain economic climates in Nigeria, businesses are expected to offer competitive salary packages, bonuses, and share options to attract and retain top talent. This practice not only serves to attract new candidates but also ensures that current staff members are compensated fairly and in alignment with the salaries of similarly skilled professionals in the market.”

Macroeconomic impact: “Political and economic crises, especially in Nigeria and Gabon following government changes, had a major impact on recruitment, with currency devaluation affecting the landscape. Remote work continued to be a prominent trend, with more companies moving toward digitalisation and the implementation of hybrid work arrangements."
