NBAD opens 1st academy in N Emirates
Dubai, December 26, 2011
The National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD), a leading bank in the UAE, has expanded its training facility with the inauguration of a state-of- the-art academy in the Northern Emirates, the Bank’s second in the UAE.
Located between Dubai-Sharjah in Al Mamzar area, the new academy aims to reach all NBAD employees in Dubai and the Northern Emirates to raise the level of their skills to the higher international standards.
“We are proud to launch the second NBAD academy, which plays a key role in enabling our people supporting the Bank to achieve its business goals,” said Hassan, the Group chief human resources officer of NBAD.
“The new academy reflects NBAD’s commitment towards its learning culture strategy by providing a platform to develop and maximise talents.”
The new facility delivers world-class development programmes aligned to business requirements including consumer banking products, fraud awareness, service excellence and quality, and regulatory and compliance.
It also provides banking and financial services training programmes, personal effectiveness, and executive and leadership development as well as professional and technical development. NBAD will bring the most qualified instructors to transfer their knowledge and expertise to the recruits.
“Human capital is the new driving engine of banking growth and development and the most valuable asset that needs to be constantly invested in. At NBAD learning culture is a core corporate value and the academy enables staff to contribute effectively to developing innovative, efficient and secure products and services and provide our customers exceptional banking experience,” Hassan explained.
“Launching the second NBAD academy would greatly boost the Bank’s learning culture strategy and enable us to further develop the UAE into a global banking hub. This academy would also create greater opportunities for UAE nationals in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.”
NBAD launched its first academy in Abu Dhabi two years ago and forged partnerships with internationally-recognised learning institutions such as Zayed University, Institute of Leadership & Management and ifs School of Finance in the UK.
“We aim to equip all NBAD employees with the right learning tools and technical knowledge in banking and finance and offer them long term training thus producing promising citizens for the development of the Country,” said Paula McManus, head of Learning & Development at NBAD. – TradeArabia News Service
