The Alcatel-Lucent South Africa team conducts regular employee engagement activities and on Friday, May 30th 2014 they hosted 10 "Bridging for Life" learners from the Ponelopele High School, through the yearly campaign "Take a girl child to work".

Valued Citizens Initiative's learners had the opportunity to engage with the team and learn about various career paths such as Pre-sales, Sales, Finance, Human Resources, Communication and Marketing. Our "Bridging for Life" learners questioned the world of work and how we plan growth in Africa as the second largest continent in the world, with rich diversity, culture and challenges.

Many questions were asked regarding internship opportunities and procedures relating to discipline, support and guidance when an intern does not perform accordingly, as the new B-BBEE (Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment) score cards will shift in October 2014. Inquisitive and relevant, the Bridging for Life learners explored deeper the layers of the world of work, from policies to the care and growth of employees within Alcatel-Lucent. They were fascinated about the branding of a company and its impact in society.
