Metical fell slightly against Euro last week
The Bank of Mozambique has emerged as Mozambique’s Preferred Employer in a survey conducted by the company NHP Consultoria e Serviços in partnership with the Herman Group, the US-based Employer of Choice surveyor, the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and the National Institute of Employment and Vocational Training.
The Bank of Mozambique won with 15.8 percent, followed by the International Bank of Mozambique (BIM) with 9.8 percent, and Standard Bank in the third position with 8.7 percent.
A total of 540 people participated in the pilot study, 92 percent of them aged between 18 and 30 years. The financial sector came out favourite with 46.2 percent. Good salaries were most mentioned, with 73 percent, followed by the pleasant and prestigious environment, with 11 percent. Company reputation and prestige was most valued by 9 percent of respondents.
Other preferred employers were the Tax Authority, Mozambique Airlines and KPMG.
For people over the age of 40, the guarantee of retirement is one of the prime attractions for the choice of the employer, whereas for those aged between 18 and 25 years old, this has little relevance.
Speaking at the ceremony, NHP representative Eric Granry said that he hoped the research would introduce the company’s product to the Mozambican market and promote competitiveness between organisations in both the private and public sectors.
“The results we present are from a pilot survey that represents the starting point for the 2017-2018 edition of the Best Employer and Preference Employer surveys,” he said. The survey Best Employer measures organisational culture, leadership, human capital management, training and development, among other factors.
NHP Consultoria e Serviços hopes that the Preference Employer and Best Employer surveys will serve as a driving force for good practices in human capital management in Mozambique and the development of Mozambican talent, as well as the promotion of Mozambique as a country of preference for professionals and talents of high quality and specialisation.Source: Notícias
