Abdulla Aleter and NBF staff at Tawdheef
National Bank of Fujairah continues to make its presence felt through national recruitment platforms such as this week’s Tawdheef at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), reaffirming its commitment towards cultivating Emirati talent for leadership roles within the bank and the local economy.
Tawdheef is the first in a series of career fairs that NBF will attend in 2014 along with Sharjah, Fujairah and Dubai, underscoring the importance placed by the bank towards engaging the nation’s youth and understanding their career aspirations.
National Bank of Fujairah’s Emiratisation ratio currently stands at 41%, above the industry average. In a survey conducted by global management consultancy Hay Group, staff at NBF also exhibit satisfaction and engagement levels that are ahead of the banking sector in the GCC and on par with, if not ahead of, many high-performing global organisations.
At the sidelines of Tawdeef, Abdulla Aleter, NBF’s Head of HR said: “At NBF, we believe in constantly investing in our human capital through a holistic approach focusing on training and development, staff recognition and employee welfare.
“Platforms ranging from our successful management trainee programme and career development platforms for fresh graduates and existing staff respectively, to specialised courses such as an advanced credit risk management training programme conducted jointly with Fitch Learning for a third of the bank’s employees, underscore our belief that the best results can be achieved if we align the growth plans of the bank with the future of our human capital.”
