FCMB gets global institute’s certification
First City Monument Bank (FCMB) has been certified as a great place to work by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work Institute, a global research firm.The institute, which produces the list of Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For and other top employer rankings, listed the bank in recognition of its commitment to human capital development.
Great Place to Work surveys were sent to a random cross section of FCMB employees, and 84% agreed that the bank is a great workplace, with majority saying they take pride in working for the organisation.The certificate was presented to FCMB by GPTW Institute Africa at a ceremony on Tuesday, in Lagos.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive of FCMB, Adam Nuru, expressed delight at the recognition, adding: “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’’.
Also speaking at the certificate presentation ceremony, the Senior Vice President and Divisional Head, Corporate Services, FCMB, Felicia Obozuwa, said: “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. These are the areas we have focused our attention on over the years.
“FCMB 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’’.
On his part, a Director at GPTW Nigeria, Michael Tosin Oni, explained that the Certificate was instituted to promote human capital development. He said that FCMB has distinguished itself by creating a great place to work for employees, measured through our analysis of the results of our Trust Index survey and Culture Audit questionnaire.
Through the Trust Index, employees anonymously assess their workplace, including the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
