In line with its continuous efforts to support the development of its employees, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) launched its ‘Talent Program’ for 2019, at the Four Seasons Hotel. 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. 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. We are committed to investing in the development of young national talent through our ‘ABK Youth Development Program’, to prepare them for future leadership roles within the Bank.”
This year, ABK’s high potential performers will cultivate their leadership capabilities through classroom learning and project work in a move to be prepared for future leadership roles. This structured program is delivered in partnership with the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK), 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 on conferences, seminars, & corporate events locally through VIGOR Events, and internationally through partnerships with extended companies.
