Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) launched its Friendship Thursday Initiative during the last quarter of 2019 as part of its dedication to promoting a cohesive, and inclusive work environment.
Friendship Thursday is a weekly program where a small group of ABK staff from different divisions meet for a morning coffee outside the office. The initiative is welcomed by staff, who seize the opportunity to exchange stories, and strengthen interdepartmental ties. It is also an opportunity to banish silos, which can become a barrier to communication and growth in an organisation.
ABK’s strategic initiative, Solidarity, a culture of one, aims to connect staff and build relationships that contribute to individual, team and business success. The initiative does not only aim to foster a friendly and welcoming work environment but encourages a collaborative culture while maintaining each member of staff’s authentic self.
ABK’s organisational ethos are centered on respecting and valuing the importance of a cohesive work culture. The initiative is the latest in a series of events focused on driving relationships between staff that create value for the employees, clients and society. It is also testament to ABK’s efforts to promote an inclusive culture which rewards behaviours that support all staff to reach their full potential.
The initiative, spearheaded by ABK’s HR and Service Quality teams will enter a new phase in 2020 and will form an integral part of a wider campaign focused on achieving an inclusive workplace in order to maximise productivity, attract new talent and increase employee commitment.
