Fidelity Bank has been adjudged the bank with the most outstanding family friendly policies in Nigeria. In a survey conducted amongst corporate organizations in Nigeria by the Institute for Work and Family Integration (IWFI) in collaboration with the Lagos Business School and the Great Place to Work Institute, the institute said that Fidelity Bank emerged tops in all the measuring indices. Specifically, the IWFI, which has consistently promoted work family balance and good work ethics, through policy research, seminars, conferences, and training; working with major organizations and institutions in the last eight years with its principal objective of building better family, better business and better society said that they were impressed with Fidelity Bank’s efforts at improving the welfare of its staff members.
Receiving the award last week during the Work and Family Conference 2014, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank Plc. Nnamdi Okonkwo thanked the organizers of the award for recognizing the efforts of the bank towards improving the wellbeing of its staff. He noted that the award is an affirmation of the various staff-friendly policies initiated by the bank. Okonkwo, who was represented by the Chief Human Resources Officer of the bank, Napoleon Esemudje said that the bank is proud to be honoured especially because of its strong initiative and focus not only on staff welfare but also on the wellbeing of their families. He pledged the support of board and management of the bank towards the improvement of the welfare of the staff members. “Management remains keen to continuously support all staff and their families to establish a family friendly workplace”.
Esemudje who spoke on the topic:”Which Family Responsible Policies work in Nigeria -The Fidelity Bank Experience?” alluded to the great work the bank had done in making Fidelity Bank a great workplace. Citing the GPTW studies conducted in more than 44 countries and 4,500 organisations which had seen corporations like Google, Goldman Sachs and Microsoft emerge as winners, Esemudje said he is proud that Fidelity Bank belongs to this league having won the award on two occasions. For instance, last year Fidelity Bank was voted the 2nd Best Place to Work in Nigeria by the Great Place to Work Institute (GPTW), a US based global research agency with operations in more than 40 countries across the world. The year before, the bank was voted the 5TH Best Place to Work in Nigeria, 2nd amongst rated banks and 3rd amongst all rated indigenous organisations in Nigeria. This, Esemudje said is a strong endorsement and a worthy acknowledgment of the Fidelity brand from an internationally renowned outfit.
