Staffable is a recruiting and training company based in East Africa – a workforce accelerator – dedicated to finding clients the best talent available, and designing training programs and workshops to improve effectiveness of their employees and leadership, making them more successful on the job.
Since its inception, Staffable has facilitated over 200 job placements for Ugandan nationals within the local workforce. One of the company’s most noteworthy partnerships is with Pizza Hut, an American restaurant chain and international franchise (subsidiary to Yum! Brands Inc.). A relatively recent addition to the Ugandan food and service skyline, Pizza Hut launched in Uganda in May, 2016. Working alongside Pizza Hut’s Human Resources department, Staffable Africa has recruited over a hundred new employees to work for the chain in a range of positions, from Supervisor to Team Member.
Here at GLI, we have spent years focusing on education and job creation. In 2016, we launched a unique and innovative for-profit social impact company to bridge the gap between young, educated Ugandans and employment in the hospitality industry. Staffable is recruiting Ugandans who are eager to work in their country’s burgeoning hospitality industry.
GLI selects students from the University of Denver’s School of Hospitality to work with Staffable to manage and implement a hospitality training curriculum for these individuals. We also act as the social responsibility arm of the company – ensuring that the Ugandans we place get paid a competitive, fair wage and measure improvements in their quality of life. In the early stages of this company, we have already employed 115 Ugandans and counting!
