Arab Bank employees were recognized during a ceremony at its head office recently for their volunteering efforts to support the local community under the Bank’s sustainability program, Together.

With approximately 1,300 employees volunteering since the beginning of the Together program in various activities, the ceremony was conducted to recognize the five most active volunteers of each year, the most active volunteer overall and the most active division. The ceremony emphasized the main role of employees to achieve Arab Bank’s goal to develop and contribute positively to the communities in which it operates in line with the Bank’s values of giving and commitment.

Arab Bank, through the Together program, has organized approximately 60 community initiatives since its launch in 2009, covering the areas of environment, health, poverty alleviation, orphan support and education, reaching 22,000 individual beneficiaries in the local communities across Jordan.

Ms. Dina Shoman, Executive Vice President of Branding at Arab Bank, inaugurated the ceremony thanking all volunteers for their hard work and dedication towards making their community a better place. Ms. Shoman said: "It is important for all of us to focus on volunteering and giving from our most valuable asset, our time, towards society.”  Ms. Shoman added: “Our employees have demonstrated the power of giving, embodying the values of the Bank on its journey of success through their hard work and dedication.”

The Together program, which is a multi-dimensional approach to sustainability, is also available for the Bank’s customers to support their community.  Arab Bank’s customers have also made significant contributions with approximately JOD100,000 since the program’s launch to the non-profit organizations participating in Together, which were generously donated through the Bank’s various channels including Internet Banking (Arabi Online), Telephone Banking (Hala Arabi), and the Bank’s vast network of branches and ATMs across the Kingdom.

It is also important to mention that customers can support the Together program’s participating non-profit organizations through the Together Platinum Credit Card as well, which has a built in mechanism that gives back to the community.
