Benefits and Rewards Philosophy /Compensation and Benefits at NSE
The NSE's reward system is founded on the philosophy of fair and equitable performance based pay which is expected to positively motivate individual and corporate performance.  The NSE offers a highly competitive and structured Reward and Benefits Structure which is aimed at attracting and retaining the best talent both locally and internationally. This is also aimed at helping to foster a sense of shared ownership in the company and promoting the holistic well-being of the employee as an important part of company culture. 

Diversity at NSE 
Diversity at NSE is at the core of its employment practices and is driven by the need to give the opportunities to everyone from all background classifications – gender, race, religion, disability and other means of differentiation to find commonality in an environment that neither discriminates nor inhibits, in order for them to maximize their potential. The NSE is a responsible corporate citizen and therefore views diversity as a key business performance index by which its success it measured. 

People Development Philosophy  
Career development is at the fore front of NSE’s people strategy and is therefore underpinned by one of the four pillars of our corporate values which is professionalism. It is also predicated on leadership expectations; the company’s role as the epicenter of the Nigerian economy; and the vision of the company to be Africa’s foremost Exchange. Our approach to career growth is also based on the company’s development philosophy, which emphasizes that professional evolution occurs through a combination of work experiences, feedback, relationships and developmental interventions.
