CBI launches Emirati training programme
Dubai, August 16, 2011
Commercial Bank International (CBI), a leading bank in the UAE, has launched its Emiratisation training programme with the enrolment of more than 25 Emirati students.
CBI Al Ajial (new generation) programme has been developed by the bank to provide trainees with fundamental principles of banking, and aims to give UAE nationals working knowledge and practices in the banking sector.
Twenty-five Emirati graduates were selected for the programme and will be rotated through various departments for six months, during which time they will receive continuous on-the-job training supplemented by formal training in the training centre.
Each graduate is assigned to a mentor to support and prepare them for various positions across the bank.
“Training helps optimise human potential in achieving both individual and organizational goals. It is important to give employees adequate tools to work better for their companies and also for their own sense of achievement,” said Kris Babicci, chief executive officer, CBI.
“In the long run training has a very positive impact on retention, increasing staff morale and enhancing overall job satisfaction, as well as improving productivity and performance."
"Al Ajial is one of our most successful approaches to developing local talent and illustrates our commitment to the Emiratisation drive. Our trainees are exposed to the best practices the industry has to offer and they can look forward to excellent growth and development prospects in the bank,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
