• Jobberman, a major recruitment platform in Nigeria, has released its annual list of the best 100 companies to work for in the country.
  • The result is based on a survey carried out on over 60, 000 companies and 3,148 responses.
  • Job satisfaction, employee happiness, career growth prospects and work-life balance are some of the metrics used for the survey.

Shell, an oil firm, has been ranked as the best company to work for in Nigeria this year according to Jobberman.

Chevron, another oil company, is in second place. It was voted the most ‘desired’ and ‘respected’ brand.

This is followed by Dangote — a Nigerian multinational industrial conglomerate founded by Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote. The conglomerate was in 10th place last year.

According to Jobberman, "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."
