Five Nigerian Companies With Worker-friendly Practices

In the pursuit of a worker-friendly environment, Nigeria has seen recognition from the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), which ranked the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, Standards Organisation of Nigeria, and the Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Service as top-performing agencies in compliance with the 2022 Executive Order one.

Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Goal 8, which emphasizes sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, productive employment, and decent work for all, organizations play a crucial role in achieving these targets. The International Labour Organization (ILO) defines decent work as “productive work for women and men in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity.”

Focusing on Nigeria, where long-term organizational growth can positively impact the nation’s economy and the African region, it is vital to spotlight private indigenous organizations excelling in creating a secure and stable environment for their workers. These companies also prioritize transparency, accessibility of information, good governance, cultural values, skill development, labor practices, and economic opportunities for their employees.
