Heritage Bank promotes 350 employees
Heritage Bank Plc has announced the promotion of over 350 of its workforce, after a successful completion of appraisal system that identified high performers in the bank who met the required criteria.
A statement obtained by The Guardian through the bank’s Divisional Head, Corporate Communications, Fela Ibidapo, said the move was in line with its commitment to greater efficiency and resource optimisation.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ifie Sekibo, who commended the staff for their efforts, charged them to tenaciously hold to the bank’s core values in their timeless wealth journey and endless quest of delivering excellent services to both internal and external customers.
“I commend your well-deserved promotion. I also wish to especially thank those colleagues who have not made it on this year’s list. I urge you to keep up the good work and contribution, as the organisation recognised your efforts. We promise to continue to reward and recognise your contributions in due time and to use all opportunities to demonstrate this,” he said.
Sekibo said the promotion became crucial even in the face of the tough times occasioned by the downward trend in the economy.
He added that the move was part of the bank’s strategic plan to keep a vibrant workforce that would enable the bank achieve its vision of being Nigeria’s most innovative banking of choice in service delivery, superior returns to its stakeholders and contribute to the growth of the nation’s economy.
The promotion was also commended by human resources analysts and greeted with joy and enthusiasm by the workforce of the bank.
Meanwhile, in a bid to reduce the high rate of unemployment in the country, the lender said it has focused on the tourism and SME segment to create a fresh set of vibrant entrepreneurs that will create jobs and distribute wealth to the country’s economy.
