In line with its policy of honouring deserving staff, the management of Nosak Group of Companies has recognised and rewarded 180 workers who had served meritoriously for five years and above.

Speaking at the Long Service Award event, which took place in Lagos recently, the Chairman of Nosak Group, Dr. Toni Ogunbor, eulogised the awardees who he said had remained resolute in their faith in the Nosak mission and vision despite a challenging year.

He further urged the younger employees to emulate the worthy examples of the awardees as the group was set to be among the leading private sector organisations in Africa.

Among the 180 awardees, 126 members of staff were awarded for five to 10 years of service; 34 members of staff for 11 15 years of service; 15 members of staff for 16 to 20 years of service and five members of staff for 20+ years of service.

Each of the awardees also received gift items which included gas cookers, televisions, microwaves, steam irons, blenders, kettles among others.

One of the awardees, who has spent 16 years working for the company, Ukeni Anthony, couldn’t hide his excitement when he spoke to journalists.

He showered praises on Nosak Group as he encouraged young staff to remain industrious and sincere in their service delivery, saying: “Being hardworking, sincere and purpose-driven are the ultimate tools for such upliftment.”

Highlighting Nosak Group’s commitment to staff training, another award recipient, Adeyinka Olowonyo, who has spent seven years working for the company, had nothing but praise for the group. She commended the company’s custom of training its staff, a gesture which she said has positively impacted her.
