There is an actual need for civil servants in Nigeria, who make the majority of the country’s labour force, to travel once in awhile for vacation. Whether it is within their local government, interstate, or out of the country (going abroad) traveling offers to them essential benefits that cannot be denied. From unwinding, sightseeing to adventure, a trip or vacation does not just spice the boring office life that most of them have; it takes away the daily hustle-bustle and constant pressures that come with life in Nigeria. Even more, civil servants who tend to travel often, tend to succeed more at work and business than those who do not.
Certainly, traveling creates ripple effects which go on, deep and permanent, affecting the traveler’s ideas of life and work. Curious to know how this happens? Here are four ways traveling can give Nigerian civil servants the much-needed boost at work or in their career.
