These coveted awards recognise the efforts of the bank’s human resources team in creating a positive and stimulating work environment for employeesand the bank’s progress towards becoming an “employer of choice”.

Organised by Naseba, the Human Capital Forum MENA invites 150 Chief HR Officers, CEOs and senior talent practitioners to benchmark their practices, exchange knowledge and build relationships.

Commenting on the win, Vince Cook, NBF’s CEO, said: “Our Human Resources strategy focuses on enhancing NBF’s position as one of the leading employer brands in the UAE and beyond. Our approach concentrates on fostering a working environment where employees can develop their skills and thrive in a supportive culture. Our HR team has put in place a number of HR programmes and services to build a talented, engaged and productive workforce; which allows us to maintain high levels of employee satisfaction as well as to recruit and retain the best talent in the market to cater to our customers.”

NBF’s Head of HR, Abdulla Aleter, added: “We are thrilled to have received these awards. All credit goes to the NBF leadership team, managers and employees for their combined commitment to our goal of creating the best working environment. The recognition we continue to receive from such prestigious industry award platforms is testament to our commitment to delivering HR excellence. We are looking forward to continuing this throughout 2018 further cementing NBF’s position as the employer of choice for banking professionals.”

Reflective of NBF’s long-term commitment to developing a high-performing and fully engaged team is the fact that more than half (53%) of employees have been with the bank for over five years. With the lowest staff turnover in the industry, only 3.6% last year, NBF focuses on empowering employees and providing a working environment in which they can grow both personally and professionally.

The win builds on NBF’s strong track record in this space. Just this year, the bank received multiple accolades at The Gulf Employee Experience Awards including, the “Nationalisation Award”, “HR Team of the Year Award”, and “Overall Gulf Employee Experience Award”.Last year, the HR team was also singled out on multiple occasions scooping several accolades including, the “2017 MENA HR Excellence Awards”, “Gulf Employee Experience Awards 2017”, Korn Ferry Employee Engagement Awards 2017”, “Daman Award for Corporate Health and Wellness Initiative 2017” among many others.
