Access Bank PLC has announced the promotion of 800 employees who the bank ranked as having exhibited what it called transparent and robust performance.
The announcement came in the heels of the bank’s transition to a Holding Company (Holdco) starting from May 1st, 2022.
According to a statement, the Bank’s consistent growth over the years has been due to the immeasurable effort and sacrifice of its employees.
The beneficiaries of the promotions cut across Bank’s senior, middle and junior management levels.
The statement said that the management is making more efforts to continuously put employees in the best position to grow and be successful in today’s highly competitive work environment.
It said that over the years, Access Bank has demonstrated that employee performance and rewards remain a critical pillar of the Bank’s business operations.
“The Bank has consistently provided adequate resources to deepen core job skills while entrenching a culture of high performance amongst employees.
“The Bank’s penchant for rewarding high performance is particularly highlighted by the annual CEO Awards, one of the programs under it’s ‘We Clap Initiative’ which is designed to support the development of a culture of excellence as well as motivate employees and teams for superior performance.
The statement recalled that recently, the Bank was named the best institution to work in Nigeria by global professional network company, LinkedIn, having assessed data across seven pillars that serve as identifiers of career progression, namely: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and spread of educational backgrounds.
