Huawei Holds Talent Summit in London

December 5, 2016

On 2nd December, Huawei hosted its first Talent Summit at the iconic Shard tower in London. At the event, Huawei representatives set out the company's human resources philosophy and strategy to over 130 top talent, scientists, and professionals from the areas of finance and technology in the UK, France, and Germany.

Huawei is committed to open innovation. At the heart of this strategy is the elimination of all borders and barriers for talent. Huawei encourages its top talent to engage actively with people and organizations outside the company, be they experts, scientists, international organizations, and industry associations. The company believes in building capacity by locating itself in talent hotspots, and has built 26 centres of excellence in cities across the world.

Huawei's vision for talent discovery will help it create the strongest and most highly-skilled teams in the industry. Through programs including joint R&D projects, its flagship CSR program Seeds for the Future, and the Huawei UK Graduate Programme, Huawei aims to support not just its own HR needs, but an open, healthy ICT ecosystem.

"We have a globally successful digital economy which is worth more than £118 billion a year and employs 1.4 million people," Minister of State for Digital and Culture, the UK, Matt Hancock said. "We will do everything we can to make sure this incredible success continues by supporting creative individuals, and their ideas, and greatly welcome Huawei holding their first Talent Summit in London."

Vincent Pang, President of Huawei Western Europe, said, "Huawei is committed to building an ICT ecosystem with an ethos of ‘In Europe, For Europe’. Huawei’s future will depend on our ability to attract and harness the right talent. The Talent Summit reflects our efforts to open the top of our talent pyramid and create the most highly skilled teams in the industry, wherever those people might come from. Discovering the best talent is challenging, but only through outstanding employees can we establish an outstanding organization."

Sir Andrew Cahn, non-executive director of the board of Huawei UK, said, "Since I was responsible in government for attracting inward investment into the U.K., I have emphasised how very important it is for the future economic competitiveness of the UK and Europe to establish a strong talent pool of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) professionals. As a leading ICT company, Huawei has a responsibility to help young people in STEM fields develop their full potential, and to help create more opportunities for them. The Huawei Talent Summit is a chance for us to share our talent strategy and vision as well as the company’s requirements for senior ICT, finance and R&D talent. "
