Jobberman instituted the Best Places to Work in Nigeria to provide a comprehensive rating of employee satisfaction and commitment across employers in Nigeria

The 2013 Best Companies to Work rankings include 50 multinationals , 45 majorly Nigerian companies and 12 government agencies.


To find the companies that were the best places to work, conducted more than 10,000 surveys of employees in Nigeria. Over 5000 companies were submitted by 10,482 respondents (experienced, entry level and exec management). 89% of those who filled the survey were gainfully employed. Only companies with at least 100 full-time permanent employees were considered.

The index was calculated by getting a weighted average of each recipient’s top 5 companies and dream company to work for. Recipients also selected workplace metrics that mattered to them in making these choices – Company Culture, Salary, Non-Salary Benefits, Proximity to Company Location, Prestige/Company Brand, Management Integrity and commitment to staff welfare.


The Top 10 places to work for in Nigeria are:

Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) Oil & Gas
Chevron Oil & Gas
Mobil Oil & Gas
NNPC Oil & Gas
MTN Telecommunication
Nestlé Nigeria FMCG
Federal Government Civil Service Government
Total Oil & Gas
Dangote FMCG
Nigeria Breweries FMCG

Salary (Remuneration) was the most important metric employees considered in rating companies, thus resulting in the oil and gas sectors topping the chart of best companies to work for.

From the survey results, there is clearly hope for indigenous companies in the next few decades as they continue to grow and dominate the economic landscape amidst existence of established multinationals doing business in Nigeria.
