Everyday Nigerian companies are trying to outdo themselves in creating the ideal work space for staff and administrators alike. Going by the ever increasing number of cool office spaces we continue to experience, they all seem to be doing a pretty decent job of this effort.

Recently, we went to take a pictorial peep into what OLX Nigeria is packing behind its doors. OLX Nigeria is one of the premier companies serving classified ads in Nigeria.

The company’s Uche was our tour guide on this pictorial journey. She walked us through the office and the company’s values.

The reception area is a well lit colour fest with a television and magazine stand

The wall behind the receptionist represents a global map illustrating the the presence of OLX and its sister companies

On the right, there is a passageway that leads to the board and conference rooms — which all form the administrative department proper

And a hallway leading up to the board and conference rooms

The “LIVE IT” tag is designated for the boardroom which has “BE EMPOWERED” as its design theme

While the conference room is at the end of the passageway

On the walls, there are illustrations of how OLX began,

Its current processes  and future plans

The workplace proper is an expansive open-floor work station

In OLX, the in-house ‘Champs’ sit under the evolution markers on the wall

Car Evolution and Phone Evolution markers show the development of cars and phones (two of the fastest items on the OLX platform) over the years

The ‘Champs’ are agents assigned to users based on individual location to help them sell their items

Then there is a relaxation lounge with a “BE OPEN” tag

The lounge is for rest when you tire of sitting at a desk, and it also doubles as a snack and TV bar of sorts

Then there is a cafeteria and dinning area

Do you think your office is cooler? Invite us to take a tour through our lens.
