The different viewpoints and perspectives that diversity brings to Nigerian Breweries Plc is invaluable as it ensure that we make better decisions, improve our performance, innovate better products, as well as get an in-depth understanding of the diverse need of our customers and consumers.
This works because we promote an inclusive culture where everyone can be himself or herself at work, which breeds a strong sense of belonging and psychological safety. This ensures that we all contribute to the future of our organization. To this end, we are committed to promoting gender balance across senior management roles by 2025, while encouraging cultural diversity, in order to promote a sense of belonging among our employees.
This ensures that our employees afford a decent standard of living that is not dependent on variable factors like incentives or working overtime. We have also committed to ensuring that our employees get equal pay for work of equal value irrespective of their gender. Promoting fairness also extends to our third-party employees as we continuously ensure that they are provided with fair working conditions, and can afford a decent standard of living.
