Stemming from this, Giza Systems launched Headway Program in September 2018. Headway is a six-month internship program targeting fresh university graduates. It aims to develop certain technical skills and competencies through sponsoring a number of technical, soft skills and on-the-job training to create a qualified pool of calibers ready to be not only hired but excel at an early stage of their career. The program content was designed around a combination of technical theoretical trainings, soft skills trainings, on-the-job trainings and actual assignments.
Upon conclusion of the six-month program period, trainees graduate with a presentation during a graduation ceremony, followed by a thorough assessment of their performance. Top performers are offered full time jobs at Giza Systems based on hiring needs and vacancies.
The main aim behind Headway Program is training and preparing fresh graduates to conquer their job search quest, and qualifying them to pursue the career they wish to build.
The Giza Systems Environment
Our priorities for accomplishing the goals of being a great place to work is to diversify our work force, retain and advance our people especially our top performers and improve our flexibility and work-life tools. To foster the behaviors that will enable us to achieve this goal, diversity and work-life activities are crucial. We believe an inclusive workplace enables us to take advantage of the talents of our diverse workforce, to improve the quality of our services and to grow our business. These priorities are fundamental to giving everyone the opportunity to succeed in achieving his or her personal and professional goals. It is also a business imperative tied to the company’s continued success and growth.
Fair and equal employment practices are inherent in this strategy. Affirmative action is a building block for these fair and equal employment practices. It is an integral component of our strategy for sustaining our overall business performance though enhanced regional market relationships, attracting and retaining the best talent and delivering the most innovative industry-focused solutions to our diverse client base.
We also believe that our people are more productive at work when they have the flexibility to successfully manage their lives outside work. Flexibility is an individual’s ability, over time, to meet the demand of their role and accomplish the things they identify as priorities outside the office. Our management goal is to create a flexible work environment where we can respond in the most active way to the demands of a client service business, while providing our management team and staff with control over their own quality of life.
As for the physical workplace environment, we are located in state-of-the-art premises in New Cairo. Since we are company that is committed to supporting the environment, we took a responsible decision to build our premises along the green building concept using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout the building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance and renovation. Although new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:
• Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
• Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
• Reducing waste and pollution
Our Work Environment Will

• Be effectively supported – With integrated supportive technology, office services and approved working protocols.
• Offer choice – An abundant range of shared work settings to be provided and maintained reflecting the range of tasks performed.
At Giza Systems, we recognize that our people are the key to sustaining the company’s record of quality service, and Giza Systems’ core workplace principles will:
• Stimulate and enthuse management team and staff – Stimulate creativity, innovation and encourage a sense of pride in the company.
• Encourage multi-purpose use and flexibility – workspace and work settings are designed and equipped to be inherently capable of alternative uses that offer greater flexibility and optimum utilization, which encourage the concept of choice.
• Maintain and develop Hoteling – Supported by an effective reservation and space management system to ensure optimum utilization of space and availability of the appropriate space when needed in the context of increased flexible working enabled by new and available technologies.
In addition, Giza Systems encourages shared team activities like:

• Other leagues will follow soon!
• Staff Day Out: Through our ‘Staff Day Out’ event and our local intranet ‘Gizawi’, we recognize staff who have either been with the company for long years of service or have been top performers by giving them awards, certificates and gifts.
