Interns at Tigo provide creative solutions on Innovation Day

Accra, Aug. 2, GNA – Sixty interns currently
taking part in the Tigo Internship Programme (TIP), on Innovation Day came
together with creative and fresh solutions that would improve various processes
within the business.

Innovation Day is a day set aside by the
telecom operator for all summer interns to share their ideas and solutions with
employees including management.

It was fiercely competitive as the interns
teamed up based on the departments they have been working in, namely
Technology, Commercial, Sales, Tigo Business and Corporate Affairs. 

The winning project, a process improvement
solution for Tigo Business provided tailor-made service-on-demand internet
connectivity for Small and Medium Enterprises and Small Office and Home Office

The solution would greatly improve the
efficiency of Tigo Business. 

The presentation by the interns from Tigo
Business received rave reviews from the panel of judges which was made up of
some members from the Tigo Ghana leadership team including the CEO, Roshi

As their prize package, they each received a
brand-new phone and branded souvenirs. Tigo will also arrange with the Ghana
National Service Scheme to have them posted to Tigo after they have
successfully completed their programmes in their respective Universities.

The Human Resource Director for Tigo, Beryl
Hammond-Appiah was impressed by the presentations from the various teams.

“Having worked in the business for a few weeks
we wanted our interns to think broadly and also develop some game-changing
solutions which could either address a problem or improve on our existing
processes. I am very happy with the levels of commitment, team work and
creativity shown by this batch of interns,” she said.

She said several of the innovations would be
adopted by the business and rolled out over the next few months.
