Staff motivation and reward is dear to the heart of Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, our Chairman and he leaves no stone unturned to make sure workers are happily rewarded,” she said.
Out of the sixty employees honoured, fifty-seven of them celebrated their ten years with the company, two celebrated fifteen years while one staff was celebrated for his twenty-five years’ service to the company.
