The international awards for the activities of Azercell and its recognition is another opportunity for us and the company to represent Azerbaijan at the international arena”, added the company CEO.

The projects on Corporate Social Responsibility and Human Resources conducted by Azercell and International Quality Certificates received in these fields played a role in the voting of members of the Global Club of Leaders in favor of the Company. One of the highest marks was given to the activities of the company aimed to ensure and promote cybersecurity in Azerbaijan. Thus, taking into account the increasing role of the Internet on our daily lives and importance of information security, especially protection of children on the Internet, the Company conducts public training on "Internet Security and Digital Citizenship" for pupils, teachers and parents in secondary schools. In addition, in order to protect adults and children from internet threats, Azercell Telecom launched “Universal Protection”, “Protection for Android” and “Parental Control” services under  the umbrella of its “Azercell Plus Security” program two years ago.   

It was underlined that another reason Azercell Telecom was named the “Best Enterprise” by Global Club of Leaders is the fact that the processes and the current system of the leading mobile operator in Human Resources and people management accord with best International practices.
