The Great Place to Work Institute, at its sixth annual awards ceremony in Nigeria held in Lagos recently, formally certified RMB Nigeria as a ‘Great Place to Work.’
Reflecting on the award, the Chief Executive Officer and Regional Head, West Africa, Michael Larbie, was quoted in a statement to have said: “We are proud of the recognition as we understand that the key driver of any successful organisation is its people.
“We will continue to invest in our people and provide an enabling environment for our employees to thrive and succeed.
“RMB strives to sustain a non-hierarchical management structure and an entrepreneurial environment wherein our people think and act like business owners. “We trust and empower our people, recognise their achievements and reward them for exceptional performance.”
Also, the Head of Human Capital, RMB Nigeria, Ayotunde Jegede, further stated that while most corporate and investment banks compete on the same basis, “it is RMB’s people, our owner-manager culture, collaborative spirit and values that distinguish us from the rest.”
Jegede added: “RMB Nigeria is a values-driven organization where employee development is equally as important as financial results.
“That is why we make sure we hire the right people who have a passion for excellence, intellectual curiosity, a can-do mindset and give them the freedom to excel in absolute support of our clients.”
