Community Relations brings us closer to our host communities through open communication and provision of direct solutions to identified needs. We undertake regular and periodic stakeholder engagements with the various segments of our host communities to understand their needs and challenges, and put mechanisms in place to resolve them.
We also address internal conflicts and security issues through the Community Development Board. We are dedicated to making an impact in our host communities by providing opportunities, supporting growth, and generating value. We approach project development strategically alongside community representatives. We recruit local employees wherever possible and provide training and development to maximise their potential. Our Community Relations approach ensures that our communities are involved in the process of project identification and development through the completion of a ‘needs assessment’.
This strategy fosters a better Community-Company relationship, promotes unity, and collaboration through community engagement activities serving as an enabler for the development of our communities through direct investment in them. We firmly believe that the development of our communities will improve their economic and entrepreneurial capacity, facilitate employability of indigenes, and involvement in the FHN’s operation and Nigeria at large, as partners in progress.
