We live in a world of norms and values that make up a culture. Hence there is a norm in everything we do, and like everything else in the world, workspaces have their own norms and values which make up what we know as work culture. Work culture defines the values and beliefs shared by people in the same working environment. This cuts across their attitude towards work, working hours as well as the mode of dressing. Most offices share a more uptight work culture where everything is corporate from their mode of dressing to the way they operate. This was my expectation going into Osekemi properties limited for the first time. However, that was not the case. Sure looking good is a requirement, but this doesn’t define their mode of operation. Physical appearances to them didn’t determine the outcome of your work, as they value a team effort and creativity more. This company works because they perceive each other as a family unit, so one person’s success is the success of the company as a whole.
Osekemi properties is a dynamic real estate company founded in 2009 by Mr. Segun Martins Igbalayemi. This company started up as a one-man business but has grown significantly since then. The company is a physical representation of the popular phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover”. I say this because going in I had a lot of expectations after looking through their social media page and website. It struck me as a company that would have a huge building with nothing less than 12 employees to get the job done because it looked so well put together. Come to find out this is not the case at all. Yes, they have a building where the job gets done, but it’s just a comfortable space with about 9 staff including the owner and his wife. And like I explained earlier teamwork is what drives this company and the elements of innovation and creativity cannot be overemphasized when we talk about Osekemi properties. They have studied the playing field and they know what works and what doesn’t. Hence the reason why their online presence is top-notch. Advertising and good public relations skills contribute largely to the growth of any company and they know this. That is why Osekemi properties spare no expenses whatsoever when it comes to using these tools to their advantage.
This company is driven by great minds who are very passionate about what they do, and they strive towards excellence to make sure all transactions are concluded without any stress on their clients, and they ensure that every client is leaving with satisfaction and value. I believe good working environments and conditions encourage employees to surpass their best abilities and build loyalty between them and the employer, and Mr. Segun has done a good job in ensuring his employees get everything they need to succeed, as he has had employees loyal to him for over 9 years.
Not many companies are able to keep staff loyal to them for so long but Osekemi properties have managed to this success.
It is truly commendable the level of growth this company has attained over the years for a company that started with just an idea of a one-man business. And the is no doubt that the only way forward for Osekemi Properties Nigeria Limited is up.
