Investing Heavily in a Comprehensive Talent Ecosystem


Huawei ICT Competition 2021–2022 Global Final Closing & Awards Ceremony

Huawei works to build talent ecosystems for teachers and students, lifelong learners, and industry practitioners by establishing talent alliances, contributing to talent standards, improving talent capabilities, and communicating the value of talent in order to improve digital skills throughout society.

The Huawei ICT Academy program is a partnership between Huawei and universities that aims to share Huawei's cutting-edge ICT technologies with universities worldwide and cultivate new ICT talent. By the end of 2022, we had established Huawei ICT Academies with more than 2,200 universities across the globe. Through this program, we train an average of more than 200,000 students each year. Furthermore, the Huawei ICT Competition provides an international platform through which university students from around the world can compete and share ideas with each other. The sixth Huawei ICT Competition, held in 2022, attracted 150,000 university students from 85 countries and regions.

The Regional Final of the Huawei ICT Competition 2022 Middle East & Central Asia alone gained the attention and support of 11 countries in the region and their corresponding ministries. During the regional competition, the Omani government announced that it would offer US$450,000 worth of scholarships to incentivize students who obtained Huawei certifications in the next five years. At the same time, Huawei launched the Eagle Talent Program and shared its talent cultivation approach and employee career paths with university students. Huawei also sent offer letters for interns to the regional finalists and assigned outstanding Huawei employees to be their mentors. Those who passed the final internship presentation were given the chance to directly join Huawei. This competition was the first time that we had used the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model in a talent ecosystem project, and it further encouraged governments and investors to invest in and collaborate on talent cultivation projects and other flagship activities.

Huawei continuously optimizes its certification system, which covers both career certifications and specialist certifications. By the end of 2022, we had presented over 750,000 certifications worldwide, including more than 21,000 Huawei Certified ICT Expert (HCIE) certifications. Engineers who hold our certifications are valuable resources for industry digitalization worldwide.
