Top 20 Best Companies To Work For in Nigeria 2019
A key theme in this edition is ‘employee satisfaction and happiness levels’. It was discovered that Nigerians are not entirely happy with their current work situations, with most willing to switch jobs, however, they are willing to provide positive recommendations of their current employers. This could be due to the fact that most Nigerians rate ‘Strong, Relatable Company Values’ highly as a sought after trait and most companies in Nigeria are only beginning to adopt strong company values.
Another key insight is that the gender pay gap still exists and this is affecting the satisfaction levels amongst women in the workplace, who feel less valued and more likely to switch jobs.
This report not only features the nation’s most prestigious companies from various industries, as voted by Nigerians but also serves as a staple benchmark for all prospective employees to assess the key characteristics that make companies top of mind for current and future employees.
In addition, the report also provides a comprehensive invaluable market insight which can be used to inspire changes towards a better workplace for both employers and employees.
Shell was voted the best company to work for while Chevron was the most respected and admired as well as the most desired company to work for in Nigeria.
It is vital for employers to understand that employee satisfaction is a major factor that can help determine the organisation’s overall well-being; thus, rigorous strategies to ensure, measure, track, and improve employee satisfaction should always be held in high regard.
In Nigeria, employees are most satisfied when they can relate to a company’s vision, have full transparency with management, and have flexibility in the execution of their tasks. A company is only as good as its employees on any given day, so, ensuring your employees are happy and satisfied not only increases your company’s productivity but your company’s reputation as well.
