We’re experiencing a big shift in office spaces in Nigeria, from notoriously monotonous and stifling to great atmospheric ambience and architectural structures designed to inspire creativity while at work which can also lead to increased organizational commitment. The shift appears limited to only tech companies in Nigeria but I won’t conclude on a thing until I visit other companies outside tech with my camera and deliver the images for you to judge.

I visited the new Efritin office last week where every part of the office is modeled after popular marketplaces in Nigeria. Kunbi Majekodunmi, the Head of Human Resources, explained why the modeling is important as it helps staff commit to the company culture which encourages FLEXIBILITY, FUN and HARD WORK.

Yvonne Anoruo, the company’s Activation Manager gave me a tour of the building. Walk with me as I bring the experience via my lens.

‘Alaba Market’ is the conference room directly opposite the elevator so there’s no way you will miss that.

‘Balogun Market’ is the biggest room where more than more than 98% of the workforce operations are being carried out

The company runs a flat hierarchy system so everyone gets to work at Balogun. It’s no brainy discovery why it’s modeled after the popular Balogun Market at Lagos Island.

My favourite thing about ‘Balogun’ is the “Bell of Sales”

Once a member of staff hits their KPI, the ‘Bell of Sales’ is rung, everyone takes a break to cheer loudly for a minute or two, after which they continue with their activities. It’s one of the coolest thing I see about the new Efritin office.
