National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC, in collaboration with LinkedIn, organised its second LinkedIn Breakfast event focused on discussing best practices for enhancing employee engagement. The event took place on Wednesday, February 21st at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Dubai and was attended by HR representatives from various organisations such as Movenpick, Chalhoub, Alabbar Enterprises, Noor Bank, to name a few. The discussions outlined the bank’s approach to creating a stimulating and engaging workplace which ultimately delivers better results for customers and shareholders.

Abdulla Aleter, NBF's Head of HR, commented: “We are proud to share our employee engagement journey with other leading organisations, which is an important part of our strategy to be recognised as an employer of choice. This has been mainly achieved through listening closely to our employees and taking swift actions to address their requirements and concerns. Our business success story is directly linked to the great strides we have made in driving wellbeing and employee engagement initiatives across the organisation. We believe that by investing in our people and creating a vibrant work environment we see improvements in employee productivity and business performance. For these reasons, we will continue to invest in our employees through our Employee Wellbeing Program (EWP), social activities and community initiatives to create a stimulating working environment.”

Over the years, NBF has centered its HR strategy around employee wellbeing and engagement, high performance and customer service. Thanks to this focus, the bank’s employee engagement level stands at 80% while its turnover rate is at just 3.6%, one of the lowest in the market. Since the beginning of 2018, NBF received three awards at the Gulf Employee Experience Awards namely, “HR Team of the Year”, “Nationalisation Award” and the “Overall Gulf Employee Experience Award” thus cementing the bank’s status as an employer of choice in the banking industry. Last year, the bank was awarded the accolade of “Outstanding Employer” in the Middle East at the Korn Ferry Employee Engagement Awards, in recognition of the increased levels of engagement achieved over the last seven years. In the past, it has also received the “Best HR Team” award at the MENA HR Excellence Awards in 2017, for the second consecutive time, as well as the “Best Employee Brand” award at the LinkedIn Talent Awards 2016.
