First City Monument Bank (FCMB) said it has been certified as a â€˜Great Place to Work,â€™ by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work (GPTW) Institute, a global research firm.
According to a statement, â€˜Great Place to Workâ€™ surveys were sent to a random cross section of FCMB employees, and 84 per cent of the workers agreed that the bank is a great workplace.
The certificate was presented to FCMB byGPTW Institute AfricaÂ at a ceremony held in Lagos recently.
Commenting on the certification, the Managing Director/Chief Executive of FCMB, Mr. Adam Nuru expressed delight at the recognition.
According to him, â€œour employees are at the heart of FCMBâ€™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 usâ€™â€™.
Senior Vice President and Divisional Head, Corporate Services, FCMB, Felicia Obozuwa, added: â€œWe want our employees to love working here, so we try to create the type of work environment that positively impacts our employeesâ€™ personal and professional lives. When looking for a company to work for, we have found that it is not all about salary anymore.
Â 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. These are the areas we have focused our attention on over the yearsâ€™â€™.Â
She further stated that â€œFCMB employees are the most dedicated, smart and hardworking. So, we support our people by creating an inclusive, respectful, high performance culture, bringing different perspective to bear, and making everyone feel valued.â€
