Our diversity is at the heart of company strategy
With many nationalities represented and spread throughout 46 countries and all transport and logistics professions, AGL performs global logistics thanks to its employees who are knowledgeable about the specificities of each country. This diversity is a source of innovative solutions, new opportunities and better perspectives.
AGL looks like its employees: diverse. The diversity of talents and backgrounds allows the company to strengthen its capacity for innovation and attractiveness. AGL promotes gender equality, facilitates the integration of fragility, and implements programs designed to integrate young people and offer its senior employees a happy pathway.
More women in our professions is an important part of our human capital development.
Thanks to the gender promotion policy, AGL guarantees a better place for women within the teams. The company has also promoted women executives to positions of responsibility, including several General Managers. It is proud to count 20% women managers among its workforce on the African continent.
«Among our workforce, we are proud to count women at every level of responsibility who have been able to take chances and gain a foothold in positions that have more traditionally been occupied by men. In logistics, women are still mainly represented in support position and under-represented in technical departments. In our countries, we have set up guidance programs for girls about technical careers with grants, internships and mentoring initiatives. At AGL, we are witnessing major changes that are becoming part of the company DNA. » Tahirou Barry , Member of the AGL Management Committee and Ports and Terminals CFO
AGL is committed to training its employees to welcome vulnerable people, particularly those with disabilities.
We are committed to making it possible and easy for our subsidiaries to welcome and develop employees with disabilities through: training for recruitment teams to ensure successful integration, raising managers’ awareness of how to deal with differences, and providing premises and workstations that are adapted to the disabilities of our employees.
Attentive to the challenges faced by young people in Africa, Haiti and Timor Leste, as part of its HR policy AGL deploys programs intended to strengthen the quality of training and facilitate young people’s access to employment.
That is why it has set up partnerships with a variety of schools to introduce our careers, taking part in school forums, attending open days, welcoming interns and work-study placements and proposing jobs.
In addition to this, through its patronage program (skills, finance, materials), the company funds initiatives led by NGOs and charities aimed to help young people thrive.
«At AGL, we guide all our employees individually, all along their career path. Through our subsidiaries as well as at head office, we have a welcome program for new interns and work-study hires. The company has also set up a professional development program for Young Talent. Senior management training programs are also held for employees that demonstrate high potential. » Vincent Bidoli , Director of Development at AGL

Our dedicated guidance for the development of our employees
The men and women who devote themselves on a daily basis to the business of AGL around the world are at the core of the corporate project. Throughout their career, we offer our employees opportunities to evolve with appropriate training and diverse pathways, in particular thanks to geographic and functional mobility.
The company accompanies employees who want to evolve and develop their careers internationally, and encourages internal mobility, facilitated by the synergies between the different business lines.
Every year, the Careers Committees offer each employee transverse, vertical or geographical mobility opportunities. Other development and diversity programs are in place – both locally and at Group level – such as the young talent program.
Mobility can build the management of tomorrow, strengthen employability and team skills, preserve human resources and talent investment, develop knowledge of the various business lines of the Group, promote loyalty through opportunities, build team diversity, motivate and elevate those who deserve it most with a genuine career plan and strengthen the agility of the AGL entities.
«I am the Administrative and Financial Director of the Congo region, based at Pointe Noire. I joined the group in May 2013, and in 0 years, I held positions in 5 countries and covered 11 countries. Throughout my career within the group, I had the benefit of constant support from those above me and from the mentors who knew how to guide me. Mobility boosted my career. But apart from technical skills, I developed great humility, an open mind, resilience and perspective.. In addition to this, I learned that knowing the environment and mastering cultural codes is key to success. Mobility has made me the Manager I am today... If I had to do it all again, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second! » Maimouna Drame , Regional Director Administration and Finance, Congo Region
To ensure the success of its strategy, AGL implements an employee assessment scheme for individual and collective performance, a responsible remuneration policy and staff mobilization initiatives.
Employee performance assessment is carried out over the course of an individual annual interview and formalized through shared bases and principles throughout the company.
The goal of AGL policy in matters of remuneration is to ensure external competitiveness and internal equality, to strengthen the link to performance and to bring company commitments in matters of social responsibility to life.
AGL takes action to offer its employees an opportunity for professional development clearly aligned with the human resources policy that aims to anticipate changes within our professions and allow the next generation to move up inside the company.
As part of this, AGL has developed a mentoring program for young talents who are taking their first steps inside the company. A development pathway has also been deployed to allow talented people identified at careers committees to rapidly reach positions with greater responsibility inside the company.
«We have created middle management level development programs in the rail sector. They are the “Young Talent Rail Program” and “Out of the Box” executive programs. Each one is over a period of 12 months and they are built around railway professions and management modules. These local journeys respond to questions relating to the development and sustainability of our know-how. » Conrad Maleguel , Head of the HR training and development department at CAMRAIL
AGL offers its employees a training path adapted to the needs of the company. Diverse learning experiences are on offer for the 21,000 employees of AGL.
An online campus (e-learning) allows knowledge to be shared and accessible to all our employees. The contents are based on technical and transverse skills, soft skills, or manager development. They offer opportunities to learn, to understand, to self-assess and sometimes even to play.
Two reference training schools in the port and rail fields have also been set up by the company to train more general profiles in logistics careers: The Pan-African Port Training Center in Abidjan (CFPP) and the Higher School of Railway Careers in Bobo-Dioulasso (ESMF).
Our training offer is part of a world in constant movement, undergoing profound and sometime sudden changes. It also takes developments, in particular technical developments into account, in order to ensure rigorous, regular and appropriate training. Employee ownership of the training courses and the satisfaction of our clients constitute an area for improvement that we measure through studies.
For meaningful Training.
«Meaningful for each person, individually, to respond to our daily needs, in our professional practice, as well as to respond to our aspirations. Meaningful for everyone, as part of the company reasoning, a concrete translation of the strategic vision and goals. Meaningful for our clients, so that the quality of our service is sustainable and makes us stand out. Thanks to the expert training and education teams, as well as our network of careers experts and our Leaning network, we have successfully created a happy marriage between the fundamentals of apprenticeship, technological developments and the support of our teams.» Frederic Demarcq , Head of Training
