For the Second Consecutive Year
For the second consecutive year, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) received the ‘Employer of the Year’ award from Naseba at the 12th Human Capital Forum MENA 2017, in recognition of its substantial ‘Working Culture’ improvements. The event was held from 30 April to 1 May, 2017 at the Sofitel Palm Hotel, Dubai-UAE.
ABK participated in this year’s round, whereby Mr. James Vincent – AGM Human Resources, took part as a speaker, where he discussed the Bank’s extensive expertise in talent placement and nationalization. In addition senior members of ABK’s staff also attended the panel sessions and participated in the interactive ABK booth.
Commenting on the Bank’s achievement, Mr. Hamza Enki, General Manager – Human Resources said: “The Human Capital Forum is one of the most interesting HR forums that takes place each year. The various topics it addresses depict the real life events that alter the everyday Human Resource framework and experiences, and it is a true learning opportunity. ABK is honored to be part of this annual event, and proud to have its efforts recognized once again by such a highly regarded entity.”
ABK’s HR efforts throughout the past year focused on two main areas. The first featured enhancements to the Learning and Development capabilities, whereby employees were granted digital access to a variety of technical and behavioral courses from any location. This was recognized with ABK Group being awarded the external accreditation from the UK based Learning and Performance Institute.
The second featured a paperless appraisal process, through which ABK conducted a complete talent review. The process was developed with focus on delivering simplicity. As a result, ABK has been able to truly assess capabilities and core bench strength amongst its employees. This resulted in the launch of the Group’s first ever leadership development program, which intakes candidates annually, and has been designed to develop leaders for the future.
ABK is keen to make every HR achievement a substantial one that creates a sustainable impact on the HR systems within the Group and its working environment.
