Doha: Qatar National Bank (QNB), one of the world’s strongest, recognised the success of employees who have completed an international best practice Credit Skills Development Programme at a graduation ceremony hosted by the Human Capital Division and attended by QNB’s group chief credit officer and other senior officials at QNB Offices.
The programme is recognised by Chartered Institute of Bankers and other leading banking institutions across the world and promotes a greater working understanding of credit skills and the enhancement of ‘uniform risk cultures’ within organisations.
Following the success of the initial phase of the programme, QNB has confirmed that it will undertake a second series for selected employees later in the year. The programme will be delivered to QNB employees in many international locations, which is made possible due to QNB’s learning and development team providing a “blended” learning solution of online learning, face to face workshops and work assessments.
Fareeda Abulfath, Group Chief Credit Officer, said: “Investing in people and career development is a core principle of QNB.
“The bank encourages its employees to take responsibility for their careers and offers rewarding and varied opportunities to experience different parts of the QNB Group global business as well as building a portfolio of skills, knowledge and capabilities.
“With the support of our learning and development team, initiatives such as the programme help our employees apply best practices in an international working environment. We look forward to developing this concept further in the near future.”
QNB operates in 26 countries across three continents. It has about 14,000 employees in 590 office locations and was recently voted the Best Bank in The Middle East by Euromoney magazine.
