Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) recently congratulated the 16th group of students who graduated from the ‘ABK Academy’. A ceremony was held for the 29 participants who successfully completed the four week intensive program, on 21 May, 2015.
Commenting, Mr. Jasem Salman, Assistant General Manager Human Resources at ABK said, “ABK Academy has graduated a total of 405 candidates to date; preparing a substantial number of individuals to take on jobs within the Bank. This type of involvement and contribution is of tremendous value not only to national youth, who gain a wealth of insight into banking as a profession, but to the Bank and to the sector as a whole.”
He continued saying: “Kuwait’s youth have always been a primary interest at ABK. With the launch of the ABK Academy in 2009, the Bank has been able to take this to the next level by encouraging youth to consider the banking sector as a career. The academy covers multiple areas in the banking profession, with particular focus on customer service, which is the backbone of any successful company. We look forward to witnessing the great results these strong skilled students can achieve during their time with the Bank.”
The ABK Academy was launched as an educational platform that focuses on training students and individuals seeking a job opportunity in the banking sector. By engaging with these participants, the Bank is able to build on existing potential and talent, and better identify the areas in the bank, in which they could put this positive energy to work and excel. ABK will continue to play an active role through the ABK Academy and through opportunities that arise in the future.
