The programme was launched specifically for the bank’s service employees and was aimed at qualifying and developing their skills and capabilities. This in turn would help in offering them better opportunities for suitable jobs at the bank in the future. In commemoration of the completion of the second batch of the programme, the Human Resources Division distributed certificates to each of the 16 participating members.
The event took place at the OAB head office in Ghubra and was overseen by Amin al Husseini, CEO of the bank. Also in attendance was Adil al Rahbi, head, Human Resource Division at OAB.
Commenting on the ‘Ta’heal’ program, Rahbi said, “Conducting this programme for the second time comes as the culmination of the success of its first version which was launched in August this year and the positive results achieved through the programme. The programme aims to provide them with the necessary set of skills and knowledge to take it to the next level as well as an avenue through which they can advance their career within the bank. Moreover, we at OAB believe that it is important for all employees to recognise their roles within the bank on while providing them with the helping tools to achieve growth in their careers.”
The programme, which was first introduced in early August, focuses on several topics such as CASA and problem solving. It also offers employees a better understanding of their individual role in achieving the goals of the institution, the role of the institution in assisting and developing them in their areas of work as well as introducing the principles of internal communication, teamwork and institutional loyalty.
The first batch of trainees, comprising 20 employees, was trained from August 6-17. The second batch was trained from October 15-26. Both were conducted at the head office.
OAB is one of the first banks to be established in Oman, with a rich and proud history. Today, the bank operates a nationwide network of 65 branches and representative offices across and 148 ATMs spread across the sultanate. OAB provides the complete range of financial services.
