In a world that thrives on diversity, Bayobab, formerly known as MTN GlobalConnect, stands as a shining example of an organisation that embraces inclusivity and fosters a culture of belonging. Bayobab attributes its incredible success to a multicultural team of over 324 employees, representing 36 nationalities with 40.5% women and representation from multiple ethnicities, and four generations. This remarkable diversity fuels our innovation, enhances the quality of our solutions, and drives our rapid growth. But diversity is more than just numbers—it’s a commitment that runs deep within our organisation. We prioritise gender equality with 41% of our workforce being female, and 15% holding senior leadership roles.
Despite our vast geographic spread across Africa and the Middle East, we, at Bayobab, are united by a shared humanity and a commitment to providing the benefits of a modern connected life for everyone. Our journey has witnessed exponential growth over the past five years, reflecting our relentless pursuit to be a world-class, Africa-focused connectivity solutions provider. This spirit, deeply rooted in our African heritage, is imbued with the essence of Ubuntu—the profound African philosophy that “I am because we are”. It’s this sense of interconnectedness and shared destiny that fuels our ambition for continued growth, forging strategic partnerships and expanding our digital footprint to serve broader markets, thus entrenching our role in connecting Africa and fostering digital inclusion across the continent.
