MANAMA: The National Bank of Bahrain has become the first bank in the GCC and Mena region to win the ‘We Invest in People’ Gold accreditation from Investors in People, a UK-based, non-profit accreditation body.

The bank joins the top 17 per cent of organisations internationally who have received the accreditation, which reflects exemplary business practices put in place to support an organisation’s workforce, as well as its empowering approach and creation of progress and development opportunities.

“As the first bank in the Mena region to receive this prestigious award, we take great pride in our commitment and subsequent efforts to become an organisation that thrives on investing in our people and reaping their many successes,” said NBB chairman Farouk Almoayyed.

“At NBB we seek to nurture our workforce and strive to instil the bank’s core values amongst our team members. We take pride in our people flourishing both personally and professionally.”

“Over the past year, NBB has achieved many key milestones, which acted as a catalyst for our many internal successes. Our people are our most valuable asset, and their continuous development works to enhance our business operations, elevate the sector’s skill set and develop the industry as a whole.”

The bank has made continuous efforts on its vivid transformation journey, with a focus on also implementing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) methodologies.

Demonstrating the effectiveness of active engagement, the bank’s leadership approach has cemented trust, empowerment and delegation of authority to the right team members, underscoring its achievements and shaping the bank as an industry leader.

With a drive to encourage innovative thinking, the bank provides its human cadre with internal and external development opportunities, breeding transformative thinkers who are able to make changes on both a business and industry scale.

“Creating a better workplace is pivotal to our mission of adding value to our stakeholders as we bring our strategy to build a healthier, more prosperous and productive organisation to life from the inside out,” said NBB’s Nomination, Remuneration, Governance, and Sustainability Committee On deputy chairman Dr Esam Abdulla Yousif Fakhro.
