Skye Bank’s training school graduates 62
No fewer than 62 graduates taken to the Skye Business School have now joined the work office of Skye Bank Plc, after the necessary basic banking training programme.
The graduates, who are fresh from various universities with diverse academic backgrounds and impressive academic records, have just completed an intensive seven-week rigorous and thorough academic programme at the school, in Ibadan.
The Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Timothy Oguntayo, while addressing the new Skye Bankers, at the graduating ceremony of streams 39 and 40 of the Skye Graduate Intensive Training (SGIT), advised the new employees to uphold integrity and professionalism in their various assignments.
Oguntayo said the bank placed high premium on staff training and manpower development as a way of building a knowledgeable and competent workforce for excellence in their assigned tasks. “We have given you a good foundation; you must continue to build on this foundation to be knowledgeable and to excel in your careers”, he said.
The Skye Bank boss advised the newly inducted employees to continue to seek new knowledge in order to become knowledge-based employees, noting that continuous learning would bring about improvement on their responsibilities. He also charged them to embrace team spirit, hard work and integrity in order to succeed in their careers.
Earlier, Skye Bank’s Head of Human Capital Management, Taiwo Olupeka, said the 62 graduates were the successful lot among the over 1000 candidates, who sat for the bank’s recruitment test at the beginning.
Olupeka described them as the ‘best of the best’ after a very rigorous and thorough exercise, charging them to do their best to make the bank the first and leading commercial bank in the country. An Industrial Chemistry graduate of Imo State University, Michael Emetoh, won the overall best graduating student award.
