In line with its continuous efforts to support the development of its employees, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) launched its ‘Talent Program’ for the second consecutive year at the Chairman’s Club on the 29th November 2017. The program witnessed participants from the Bank’s high performing and high potential employees coming together to undertake a structured learning experience, and ensuring they receive the support and guidance required to succeed in existing roles and future responsibilities. The talent program is divided into three tiers namely high performing employees, high potential employees and current leaders in the organization.
Commenting on the program, Hamza Enki, Human Resources General Manager at ABK said, “Our people are at the heart of our business, and as a result, we will always maintain their career development as a top priority at the Bank. The talent program has been devised to recognize select ABK employees and empower them to further develop and succeed in their roles. At ABK, we strongly believe that the success of our people is the success of the Bank, and we endeavor to ensure that we sustain the culture of the Bank through developing leaders from within.”
This year, ABK’s high potential performers will develop their leadership capabilities through classroom learning and project work in a move to be prepared for future leadership roles. This structured program will be delivered in partnership with the Australian College of Kuwait, and is certified under the internationally recognized Highfield Leadership Institute.
Current leaders that have been identified as part of the succession plan will have a more flexible program which focuses heavily on context with limited classroom learning, and concentrates more on practical learning and ongoing career discussions.
ABK will continue to invest in its people, and constantly review its approach and procedures to ensure a healthy, productive, and satisfying work environment in the future.
