NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 9 – Safaricom is the best company to work for in Kenya according to Brighter Monday’s 2018 Best 100 companies to work for survey report.
The report, which is the first by Brighter Monday, has ranked Safaricom above the United Nations, Kengen, Google and Kenya Revenue Authority.
The main factors used to determine the best 100 companies are attributes that matter most to employees which include pride, culture, career growth, diversity, inclusion as well as competitive pay package.
Other brands on the top ten include Centum Investments, Kenya Power, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Unilever and CocaCola.
“We sent online surveys to our database of over 800,000 employees and analyzed feedback from current and former employees of companies listed. Respondents were expected to provide information on defining attributes like gender, age and their level of experience. This data was then analyzed and clustered to create the report,” the firm says.
According to the report, men occupy more senior level jobs while women take up more entry-level and mid-level jobs with a higher percentage of males on the higher salary bracket.
The level of job satisfaction is low in both male and female employees, but lower in the female employees as they posed a greater flight risk (willing to leave their current place of work) when compared to their male counterparts.
Meanwhile, younger employees have a positive perception of their companies but they are still willing to leave when better opportunities come knocking.
Both men and women value the same traits in a company. The top 3 traits being: Good Pay, Job Security, and Proximity to Home.
