Work hard, play harder!
For almost two years now, the more than 50 Semlex employees in Côte d’Ivoire have been working hard to enable the millions of Ivorians to obtain their new biometric and highly secure CNI (national identity card), as well as the creation of a digitalized and efficient civil status.
Work is part of our daily life and makes us evolve every day professionally and personally.
Nevertheless, we must not forget to recharge our batteries and take the time to enjoy life.
At Semlex Côte d’Ivoire, we have well integrated the philosophy of “Work Hard, Play Harder”. With this in mind, Semlex invited all its employees to a day of well-being at the beach of Assinie, located a few kilometers from Abidjan.
To see the video of the teambuilding, we invite you to visit our social networks by clicking HERE.
This week, we filmed in the offices of Semlex Côte d’Ivoire as well as at our partner, ONECI , in order to show you the full scope of our new project called RNPP in Ivory Coast. The first objective of this project is to produce the new ID card for Ivorians.
While waiting for the finalization of the film, we would like to present you our teams in pictures.

For more than a year, Semlex has been working in Ivory Coast to produce several types of identity documents (identity card and resident card) and to set up the National Register of Natural Persons (NRNP).
This project, of unprecedented technology and scope for both Semlex and Côte d’Ivoire, will bring benefits to citizens well beyond the known benefits of having a secure identity document in their possession.
This is why the Semlex Côte d’Ivoire team, in collaboration with our partner ONECI, wanted to document all the steps taken to build the NRNP, and explain all its benefits.
Very soon, we will share with you the film of this magnificent project.
As an European citizen, one does not always realize that having an identity document is still a luxury that not every citizen in the world has.
Semlex, by producing secure identity documents such as passports, ID cards, driver’s licenses and others, on the one hand supports the citizen by giving and facilitating access to healthcare, voting, etc. and on the other hand helps states to keep peace in their countries.
Stephan Delforge, CEO of Semlex Europe, devoted a few hours of his busy schedule to discuss these global issues with Trends Tendance. He explains in depth the benefits and importance of a secure ID system.

For the past decade, Semlex has been operating in Comoros to produce highly secure identity documents for Comorian citizens.

For almost a year now, COVID19 has radically changed the world. Our professional and personal lives have been completely turned upside down almost everywhere in the world.
Belgium is therefore no exception to the rule. Since Semlex Europe’s head office is located in Brussels, for almost a year now, all Semlex teams have had to set up an office in their house. Our offices, however, remain open for certain emergencies and tasks that cannot be performed from home.
Even though Semlex and all its teams have seen some benefits in homeworking, the lack of interaction between colleagues is strongly lacking.
With the aim of trying to partially fill this gap, Semlex’s human resources have decided to organize an online teambuilding. Even if it means doing an online teambuilding, Semlex has decided to include all of its employees all over the world. And as a result, it is a historic moment for Semlex because it is the very first time that we have organized a teambuilding with all Semlex employees combined.
It is with this in mind that on Friday February 26, all Semlex teams from Brussels, Congo DRC, Abidjan, Madagascar, Comoros, Gambia and Guinea Bissau, together, countered a cyber attack. global. We accomplished this with over 100 people connected together!
Thank you to One To Team for this wonderful day filled with challenges and laughter!
