First City Monument Bank says it has been certified as a great place to work by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work Institute, a global research firm, which produces the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list and other top employer rankings.
Great Place to Work surveys were sent to a random cross section of FCMB employees, and 84 per cent agreed that the bank was a great workplace, with majority saying they took pride in working for the organisation.
The certificate was presented to FCMB by GPTW Institute Africa at a ceremony on Tuesday, the lender said in a statement on Wednesday.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, FCMB, Mr. Adam Nuru, was quoted as expressing delight at the recognition.
Nuru said, “Our employees are at the heart of FCMB’s mission. Creating an enabling environment where employees can pursue their career goals and thrive, while providing the best customer experience to our customers, and supporting the communities where we operate, have remained key priorities for us’’.
The Senior Vice-President and Divisional Head, Corporate Services, FCMB, Felicia Obozuwa, added that, “we want our employees to love working here, so we try to create the type of work environment that positively impacts our employees’ personal and professional lives. When looking for a company to work for, we have found that it is not all about salary anymore.
“People want to know that their work is valued, the opportunities for upward mobility, the training made available to learn new skills, they want to know that you have a strong supportive culture, their work will be challenging, and they will work with supervisors that motivate and inspire them.”
