The National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has kicked off a first-of-its-kind initiative to support employee career progression and development. Dubbed Virtual Training Calendar, this new initiative is a product of NBB’s collaboration with EMIC Training, AON-Hewitt, Board Director’s Institute (BDI), and Dr. Majdi Obaid.
As part of the program, NBB will help its employees to participate in enhanced learning activities overseen by top experts. Employees of the Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), which was recently acquired by NBB, will also be eligible for this program.
The Virtual Training Calendar is also in line with NBB’s growing focus on digitization. In fact, all learning activities as part of the program will be held online.
“The design of the program came as a direct result of a survey conducted internally to better understand the requirements of our employees. Despite the current situation, our commitment to continue human capital development, mentor the best talent, and groom leaders from within remains a strategic priority,” said Dana Buheji, Chief Human Resource Officer at NBB.
Buheji added, “With this initiative, we continue to enable and empower our staff to carry on with their professional development without any disruptions.”
The Virtual Traning Calendar will include a total of 19 training topics, each focused on a diverse range of subject-matters including software technical training, finance industry related updates, management skills, and general wellbeing.
