Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by Jarus(m): 12:56pm On May 24, 2010
My colleague, an ex-Zenith staff, was telling me some days ago that the bank's IT has banned NL from their systems, meaning you cannot log on to NL from Zenith Bank systems. Same is happening in my company and many other companies for facebook.

This could mean that many Zenith staff visit NL, thereby constituting a distraction. Or possibly because of insider stories about Zenith that go on here.

Either case, NL is becoming a force to reckon with. Many companies' IT and HR departments can no longer afford to ignore NL.

nairaland is the 9th website in nigeria as per traffic, while zenithbank is the 27th. zenithbank cant stop the good things happening in nairaland. their staff can access nairaland when at home, so nothing spoilt.

Which other sites are 1st - 8th? Your link only displays the home page of alexa.com. My impression was that NL is number 1 in Nigeria.

I would imagine them to be sites like Google Nigeria, Yahoo, etc. But I think it's the No 1 NIGERIAN site sha.

Surprised at the comments here - Browsing NL at work at your employers time is wrong and should not be  encouraged -  People should get a life
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by Nobody: 7:00pm On May 24, 2010
Seriously NL has to be banned in all establishments. The distraction it causes is too much for an employee.

Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by akinalabi(m): 8:15pm On May 24, 2010
Companies do these things all the time.

When you notice that something is distracting your staff, you try try to shut that thing out if you can. For instance, I've
once banned my staff from changing the TV channel to Africa Magic because it was a distraction.

Many companies have done it with facebook. Some staff spend the whole day on fb rather than work. I dont
think its anything personal although it means lots of their staff visit Nairaland.
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by aieromon(m): 8:32pm On May 24, 2010
Kudos to the management for nippin' the problem in the bud.I'm sure most of the staff do not have access to personal internet services in their homes.

Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by snowdrops(m): 10:05pm On May 24, 2010
Same happens in the UK. My employer bans the common social networking sites. Nairaland is obviously not that popular in this part of the world, hence i still visit it regularly during working hours.
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by egoldman(m): 10:47pm On May 24, 2010
makes nl even more popular wink
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by oge4real(f): 10:56pm On May 24, 2010
Good move by the management. Staff should learn to draw a line between office hours and personal hours.
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by denzel2009: 10:56pm On May 24, 2010
Its better for productivity at work, NL is too addictive.

Assuming we currently have a military regime in Nigeria, NL would have been closed down and Seun would probably be seeking asylum anyway. Covergence of over 200,000 people won't be taken lightly.
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by maedan(f): 11:05pm On May 24, 2010
ROTF grin grin grin. Talk about total lock down grin grin grin grin. But come oh, is the workplace now a prison, why should people be deprived of anything? What happened to freedom of browzing angry grin tongue. Zenith Bank should gerraway jo. The employees will always find a way to log into this site when and how ever they want to.
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by Tcrack(m): 11:15pm On May 24, 2010

Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by fender(m): 11:22pm On May 24, 2010
Same thing happened in my organization.They blocked the internet completely leaving us at the mercy of outlook.
Yeye employers!!
Re: Zenith Bank Bans Nairaland by sulad82i(m): 11:27pm On May 24, 2010
Its not really new for employers to restrict their employees access to the internet. Some argue in their favor, that it increase employee's productivity cos of the time wasted online can be channeled to their job.

I agree with you. This shouldn't be news.

A lot of companies all over the world have IT policies that ensures their staff do not use official hours surfing away on the net.
