The event took place on Wednesday, February 21st at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Dubai and was attended by HR representatives from various organisations such as Movenpick, Chalhoub, Alabbar Enterprises, Noor Bank, to name a few. The discussions outlined the bank’s approach to creating a stimulating and engaging workplace which ultimately delivers better results for customers and shareholders.

Abdulla Aleter, NBF's Head of HR, commented: “We are proud to share our employee engagement journey with other leading organisations, which is an important part of our strategy to be recognised as an employer of choice. This has been mainly achieved through listening closely to our employees and taking swift actions to address their requirements and concerns. Our business success story is directly linked to the great strides we have made in driving wellbeing and employee engagement initiatives across the organisation. We believe that by investing in our people and creating a vibrant work environment we see improvements in employee productivity and business performance. For these reasons, we will continue to invest in our employees through our Employee Wellbeing Program (EWP), social activities and community initiatives to create a stimulating working environment.”
