      This why Nigeria is where it is, the whole “there is someone out there that won’t mind your job” is why employers are not sitting up and treating their employees right.

    Truth is a lot of these awards are bought/paid for. I used to work in a Corp comm unit of a big firm. You need to see the amount of letters received on a weekly basis, saying the company has been nominated for so so award, to accept pay so so amount…. very few credible awards. Anyway congrats to the winners

    • Courteville Staff

      May 13, 2016 at 9:49 pm

      This particular award was not paid for… how did I know, I work with Courteville. It was based on a survey carried out among the staff of the company, we saw our weaknesses and as a company we have put in steps to help come out stronger. Best Place to Work isn’t even a Nigerian thingy, cimpany’s were bench marked against foregn companies. I believe Guiness won 2 years ago and came 5th this year, if it was money, do you think Courteville has half of Guinesse’s money?

      The best place to work is not about the award, it’s about employers engagement with their employees. Job Security, the peace of mind derived at work place,camaraderie, transparency and necessarily has nothing to do with size of your salary or how big a company’s pay because I have found out that what makes a company a good place to work is necessarily not how much you are paid but how well you are treated as an employee and most especially as a human being.
