Ghana cell TV show wins HS projects award
The awards honour outstanding supply chain management projects and celebrate the best procurement practices across the African continent.
Vodafone won the award specifically for how their supply chain management department used the best supply chain processes to implement the ‘Healthline’ project.
Vodafone Ghana also picked up the “Best Procurement Community Award” at the CIPS Awards last year for employing excellent practices and process in implementing their Health and Safety projects.
The ‘Healthline’ show was earlier nominated at the recently held Mobile World Ghana Telecoms Awards, but did not win there.
Head of Supply Chain Management at Vodafone Ghana, Kobina Ata-Bedu said last year, Vodafone won the award for promoting the health and safety of people, which showed its commitment to satisfy the people it served.
“We don’t just focus on cost savings and efficiency alone but looking at the bigger picture of market leadership,” he said. Supply Chain Management in Vodafone was maturing and the company’s emphasis was now on ethical sourcing and sustainability, centered on people.
Head of Corporate Communications at Vodafone Ghana, Carmen Bruce-Annan, whose team was the brain behind ‘Healthline’, said “I’m very excited that the procurement function of Healthline has received international recognition for their contribution to the project.
“The success of Healthline can be attributed to the hard work of functions such as our Supply Chain team and we’re proud of them.’
