Here in Nigeria, most people often try to know the top Tech companies in Nigeria to work for, and we have made some checks to give out few lists of companies/startups you can work for.
Have you ever wondered if there is something worse than being unemployed? Of course, working in a choking environment. The unemployment rate is deemed to rise yearly, making Nigerian graduates feel insecure, but there are many reports of the country’s poor working conditions at large.
The main problem of a bad work environment is the method by which it recruits new staff, but across Nigeria, this recruitment process is dominant. Since the process is hence, dominant job seekers have adapted to it. One of the problems is that during interviews, time is unnecessarily wasted, and companies don’t bother to give applicants feedbacks.
Most top tech companies in Nigeria, at most times, do not put their heart and soul in searching out for the best of talents, but instead, they prefer what will be produced to who will create it. The aftermath hasn’t been really what the tech companies in Nigeria want and Nigerians who are willing to work for them.
In the quest to end this abnormality, Nigeria’s most important job and career platform, Jobberman, put out an article featuring 100 of the best top tech companies in Nigeria in 2014, 2016 and 2019 respectively. The report didn’t only contain the best tech companies in Nigeria but also provided yardsticks by which Job seekers could overview a company.
About 3000 actual responses on Jobberman was studied lately in their report and found out that about 48% of employees were comfortable with their job, 9% seemed uncomfortable, and the remaining were not necessarily excited about their jobs.
The tactics that can make tech companies in Nigeria conducive to work in are the External and Internal features of the company. The external features are the features employees are looking out for in a workplace. In contrast, the internal ones are the features a company is expected to acquire to serve employees to their satisfaction.
What is an ICT Company
ICT as a phrase evolved out of a necessity for businesses to satisfy expanding client demands for end-to-end information technology and communication technology solutions. Generally, we would not see companies providing all possible assistance in the IT and Telecommunications space; it would be a financial liability to dabble in too many separate technologies – ICT companies provide technology or hardware support or advisory services to clients in one of the two core areas. In essence, ICT does not supplant the information technology and telecommunications businesses.
An ICT corporation is involved in fields such as information technology and technical mechanisms for processing, converting, and managing information, as well as cabling, wireless, switching, transmitting, radiofrequency, optical transmission media, and internet protocol networks.
