We are proud to announce the latest addition to our arsenal – we have just received the prestigious Great Place To Work certification. This certification underscores our unwavering commitment to fostering a workplace culture founded on trust, respect, fairness, and employee engagement. This goes to show how much efforts we put in to ensure our employees thrive and feel valued. 

The Great Place To Work Certification is a coveted acknowledgment that recognizes organizations dedicated to creating an exceptional employee experience. It emphasizes that a great workplace is not solely about tangible benefits but is built on intangible factors like trust and camaraderie, making employees genuinely proud of their work. 

At FSDH Merchant Bank, we achieved this esteemed certification through a rigorous evaluation process, adhering to the Great Place To Work Trust Model and the Trust Index Survey. This survey plays a pivotal role in assessing workplace culture from the perspective that matters most – that of our employees. It provides an in-depth and comprehensive insight into the health of our internal organization. 

Our achievement of the Great Place To Work Certification stands as a testament to our ongoing commitment to nurturing a workplace where employees are not only productive but also satisfied and fulfilled. At FSDH Merchant Bank, we have consistently demonstrated that our employees are invaluable to our success. This commitment is evident through various employee-related initiatives and engagement activities, including: 

  • Continuous Learning and Development: We offer extensive training programs to support our employees’ growth and development. 
  • Well-being Programmes: We introduce programmes occasionally that focus on the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of our employees. We also have an Employee Assistance Programme in partnership with Grey Insights, that caters to the mental health of our employees.  
  • Creativity and Efficiency: Fun activities and engagement programs have been designed to boost employee creativity and efficiency.  
  • Economic Support: Our employees enjoy benefits such as free transportation and lunch, which go beyond standard remuneration. Even during challenging economic conditions, we provided employees with hardship allowances to alleviate the impact of economic challenges. 

As a result of these initiatives and our unwavering commitment to our employees’ well-being, we are proud to announce our impressive financial performance in the last year, achieving a Profit Before Tax (PBT) of over ₦4 billion, quadrupling our previous performance. We firmly believe that a happy employee is an efficient employee, and our results validate this belief. 

Commenting on this significant achievement, Mrs. Bukola Smith, Managing Director of FSDH Merchant Bank, said, “This certification is a testament to our commitment to our employees’ well-being. We provide an environment where our team can thrive and feel valued. We are proud of our employees and the culture we have built together.” 

Mrs. Olubukola Lanipekun-Lawal, the bank’s Head of Human Resources, added, “Our commitment to our employees goes beyond words. We have consistently worked to ensure our employees have a holistic and fulfilling experience at FSDH Merchant Bank. This certification is a testament to our efforts, and we will continue to support and engage our employees to maintain this exceptional workplace culture.” 

In an era where employee well-being and job satisfaction take center stage, we are dedicated to paving the way for excellence in the workplace, setting new standards for employee well-being and inspiring other organizations to follow suit. We firmly believe that a thriving, content workforce is instrumental to our success.
