Olam Agri Nigeria engages employees, children at Kids’ Fun Day

We will continue to assist farmers, communities – Olam

Olam Agri Nigeria, a leading agribusiness in food, feed, and fibre, has demonstrated a commitment to creating a work environment that engages, excites, and inspires employees. The business’ HR team invited employees who are parents to bring their children to work for a full day of fun and learning tagged ‘Kids’ Fun Day’, at their Corporate Office in Lagos, on August 31.

The Kids’ Fun Day is an engaging, entertaining, immersive, and inspiring event that features a guided facility tour, games, arts, and crafts, and lots of healthy foods to eat and drink for the kids and their parents. The event combines learning with lots of fun as kids learn about Olam Agri and its business across Nigeria.

Speaking about the event, Ibironke Alabi, general manager, learning and development, Olam Agri Nigeria, said, “There was no better way to wind up the summer break than to get our kids together for a fun and learning event.”
