Students vote for best company to work for in AIESEC awards

Aiesec EoC

University students, through the student organization AIESEC, have voted for the preferred employer in the second AIESEC Employer of Choice Awards. The Awards were the culmination of weeks of collecting opinion from students through paper questionnaires and online surveys. Audit firms dominated the top five positions in the awards held at the Panari Sky Centre. Deloitte Kenya was voted the most preferred employer followed by KPMG, Housing Finance, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Resolution Insurance in that order.

 

The black tie dinner ceremony saw several other choice organizations also receive awards including AIESEC university chapters. Other notable organisations that were recognized include; Wylde International and Pan African Life Insurance. The organizers did a superb job of bringing the whole event and voting process together.

 

“The event had the main aim to award the best companies to work for according to university students. So yes, these winners were chosen by the students themselves.  Before making the grand decision a vigorous and thorough process was conducted to determine who indeed deserved the award,” explains Elsie Kageni, one of the organizers.

“The Aiesec Committee sent their members to different universities to find out from the students which company they considered best. Some students also voted online while others voted by filling in the voting forms that were made readily available.”

 

The event was graced by a few Aiesec alumni who shared their experience and few choice words of wisdom. Some of the key speakers include Johnson Mwangi, a real estate developer and AIESEC Kenya alumnus, Kentice Tikolo, PRSK (Public Relations Society of Kenya) chairperson and Tess Wandia, AIESEC Kenya President.

 

A few AIESEC Uni chapters were also recognized for their exemplary work in their respective campuses including; AIESEC Strathmore, UoN, KU, JKUAT and Daystar.

Students had a chance to interact with senior managers and entrepreneurs at the gala, while AIESEC alumni shared their experiences and advice with the students. “It was a very productive way of allowing students to interact and learn a lot from the audience that was present,” says Elsie.

 

So after the Employer of Choice Awards, what next for AIESEC? Aiesec Career Fair will take place on the 18th May at KICC, so you better block your calendar on that date.

 

AIESEC, being the largest student oganisation with a presence in 136 countries, continues to shape and prepare students for positions of leadership and influence after campus. As Nelson Mandela said, “I commend AIESEC’s continuing efforts to develop the future business leadership for our countries.”
