Bank reinforces its leading employer brand by creating a stimulating working environment for employees
National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC announced that it has won the Employee Engagement Award at the International Business Excellence Awards 2019. Prevailing over stiff competition, the bank also achieved the runner up spot for the Best Employer accolade thus underscoring its leading employer brand in the UAE and beyond.
Now in its fifth edition, the Awards recognise businesses for their success stories, with categories aimed at providing recognition for companies and individuals implementing outstanding initiatives across the world.
Commenting on NBF’s awards, Abdulla Aleter, Head of Human Resources at NBF said: “We are very proud of our strong presence during our first-ever participation at the International Business Excellence Awards. Our recognition amongst global industry players is testament to the bank’s focus on growing, integrating and nurturing the best talent in the market and its commitment to creating a great place to work.”
As one of the leading employer brands in the UAE, NBF’s HR strategy has always focused on championing an enabling working environment that allows employees to thrive and reach their utmost potential. Employee engagement remains at the centre of NBF’s HR strategy as it creates better business outputs and builds a stronger financial performance. Critical to achieving this, the bank has provided a variety of listening channels for its employees to gain insights into their needs and requirements.
These awards are not NBF’s firsts in the space; since the beginning of 2019, the bank received three accolades at The Gulf Employee Experience Awards in recognition of its outstanding HR management including the “Overall Experience” award for the best entry, “Employee Engagement and Happiness” award and the “Employee Insight and HR Metrics” award while ranking second in the “Employee Empowerment” award. With a focus on Nationalisation, the bank also received the “Best Emiratisation Initiative of the Year” award on the back of its participation at Tawdheef 2019, the region’s leading Emiratisation exhibition that focuses on recruitment and career development.
