DIB launches mentoring plan for new staff
Dubai, June 25, 2012
Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) recently launched a mentoring programme for new employees, through which senior DIB executives will mentor new staff to facilitate the exchange of knowledge throughout the bank.
In the mentoring programme, senior DIB executives are first trained in the techniques of becoming successful mentors.
New employees, “mentees,” are then matched with prospective mentors. Mentees and mentors sign an agreement with a clear action plan and details of the knowledge sharing process.
An agreement could last 3-12 months depending on its complexity. The key purpose of the programme is to establish a systematic method of skills and knowledge transfer within the organisation.
“The launch of our new mentoring programme reaffirms DIB’s commitment to professional excellence and will enable our employees to reach their full potential,” said Abdulla Al Hamli, chief executive officer of DIB.
“As a bank that has been setting benchmarks for four decades, DIB has an unrivalled pool of experience from which to draw, and, through this programme, we will have another programme with which to share knowledge and expertise with the next generation of business leaders in the UAE.
"Lasting from three to twelve months, each programme will be tailored to the specific requirements of the individual, ensuring maximum benefit for both the employee and the bank.”
Obaid Al Shamsi, chief of Human Resources, Dubai Islamic Bank, who oversaw the development of the programme, said: “Through our proven ability to deliver outstanding academic and professional training, DIB is widely recognised as an employer of choice for graduates seeking high-level careers in the financial services industry.”
“Our new mentor programme will perfectly complement the world-class training and development programmes we already have in place, and will enable DIB to offer UAE Nationals even more rewarding career opportunities,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
