Our people

Our people are at the heart of our business

They make all the difference to our success

We’re dedicated to helping our people be the best they can be by creating a diverse and inclusive learning organisation. Our employees’ competencies, capabilities, and experience, as well as their drive and engagement, are key to our success.

We are a diverse group of companies, but some things are consistent for our people wherever we operate. These include our commitments to fair labour practices, human capital development and diversity and inclusion.

Purpose and values

We are a global consumer internet group and one of the largest technology investors in the world. We build leading companies that empower people and enrich communities. Our purpose is to improve everyday life for billions of people through technology.

Our values underpin our culture:

We build

At our heart, we’re entrepreneurs. We build leading companies that empower people and enrich communities, improving the daily lives of billions of people. We back local entrepreneurs and teams, and we operate and invest in businesses in many of the most exciting markets in the world. Our focus on long-term value creation means that Naspers is a great place to build our careers. We work hard to connect, learn and grow to be the best we can be.

We deliver

We push for excellence in everything we do. We move fast, adapting quickly to seize opportunities. We agree on clear and ambitious goals and regularly discuss how to beat them. Our reward is hardwired to performance and depends not just on what we deliver but also on how we deliver it. Pushing for excellence is good for growth – growth in our business, skills, experience and career, and growth for our many stakeholders. It keeps us moving forward.

We're responsible

We do the right thing, with no exceptions. We matter to the customers and communities that we serve. We strive to maximise our positive impact on society and the planet. Wherever we operate, we hold ourselves to the highest standards, which we set out in our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct. We’re all responsible for the impact we deliver

We value each other

We believe diversity in our teams and our thinking delivers better outcomes for all. We work hard to build a culture where everyone’s welcome and encouraged to contribute. We create supportive and flexible environments so we can perform at our best. Our views and ideas are considered, and our professional growth is supported. We’re empowered to make decisions about our work because we’re trusted to do a great job.

Developing our people

Our employees’ competencies, capabilities and experience, as well as their motivation and engagement, are key to our success. We aim to attract and retain high-calibre individuals to execute on our strategy and build sustainable businesses. Developing our talent is a critical enabler of present and future success as well as playing a role in the retention of our people. 

We do this by:
  • Fostering a safe and healthy working environment where people feel cared for, heard and supported
  • Encouraging diversity in our teams and building inclusive workplaces. 
  • Providing our employees with focused career development and training.
  • Reinforcing the leadership pipeline and accelerating the growth of top talent.
  • Creating employment opportunities that benefit the economies and societies in which we operate.
  • Being fair and responsible in our remuneration practices and having a pay-for-performance remuneration strategy.

Diversity & inclusion

Our employment philosophy is founded on promoting equality and preventing unfair discrimination.  So, we are proactive about improving diversity in our workforce, including hiring practices, employee development and rewards – ensuring we attract, hire, retain and reward our people without bias. 

We encourage diversity in our teams and in our thinking. We leverage our strengths as a highly collaborative, inclusive, learning organisation. Our commitment to learning aligns with our focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion – which essentially fuels greater learning and creativity. 
In fact, we regard a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace as a strategic competitive advantage. Because solving customer problems and unlocking hidden value becomes much more possible when we have diverse opinions in an environment where people can contribute at their best and have a voice.

Labour practices

We’re committed to enabling fair employment and having best-practice standards for our own people management including talent attraction and retention; diversity and inclusion; training and development; upskilling; labour management relations; and health, safety, and wellbeing. 


Our legal compliance programme ensures compliance with all applicable OHS, labour, economic empowerment, transformation, and diversity laws. We have HR policies and procedures in place to protect employees from human rights violations. These policies address talent attraction, management and retention, succession planning, fair and responsible remuneration, working conditions, grievance procedures and diversity, among others. We also monitor labour legislation in the various countries we operate in and ensure we comply.
