In subsequent lines, we will examine the analysis of the methods applied for the survey. This covers details like the categorisation of respondents as well as parameters used in measuring job satisfaction.
Respondents were categorised into two broad sections – internal and external. Both categories capture employed respondents on the premise who provide an accurate view of the metrics used in the ranking of the Best 100 Companies to Work For in Nigeria. Internal respondents are employees who work within an organisation while external respondents refer to employed respondents who have moved on to other organisations.
The key parameters for classification of respondents are highlighted below:
- Gender & Age

- Salary Level
- Years of Experience
- Job Satisfaction
The major work parameters responsible for the satisfaction ratings, as indicated above were centred primarily on Monthly Salary, Work-life Balance, Career Growth and Advancement, Welfare Benefits and Job Security according to their order of importance to employees and career professionals.
