Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

KUWAIT: Na­tional Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has re­cruited more than 350 Kuwaiti grad­u­ates of both gen­ders dur­ing 2015 as part of its com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing dis­tinc­tive ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties to am­bi­tious young Kuwaitis.

“The de­vel­op­ment of hu­man tal­ent re­mains a top pri­or­ity for NBK,” said Salah AlFu­laij, NBK-Kuwait Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer. “NBK main­tains its po­si­tion as a ma­jor na­tional em­ployer in the pri­vate sec­tor. In 2015, NBK hired more than 350 Kuwaiti cit­i­zens. This con­firms NBK’s full sup­port of gov­ern­ment ef­forts to em­ploy young na­tional cadres in the pri­vate sec­tor and de­velop the hu­man cap­i­tal of Kuwait.”

Fu­laij added “NBK con­tin­ued in 2015 to in­vest in its employees to de­velop their skill sets and ex­pand their knowl­edge base. We also strength­ened our part­ner­ship with lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties and aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions to or­ga­nize many of the high level train­ing pro­grams to pre­pare the next gen­er­a­tion of bankers - the promis­ing young lead­ers.

“We be­lieve that our peo­ple are our most valu­able re­source and to that end we have im­ple­mented nu­mer­ous pro­fes­sional train­ing pro­grams to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing our employees while fo­cus­ing our re­cruit­ment ef­forts on hir­ing the coun­try’s best as­sets.” noted Fu­laij.

Aim­ing at de­vel­op­ing the skills of young Kuwaitis, NBK of­fers sev­eral train­ing and de­vel­op­ing pro­grams in­clud­ing NBK Acad­emy, Shabab Pro­gram, Sum­mer In­tern­ship Pro­gram and the first of its kind NBK High Fliers Pro­gram. NBK also or­ga­nizes Ex­ec­u­tive Train­ing Pro­grams in line with the bank’s com­mit­ment to de­vel­op­ing and in­vest­ing in its key re­source and hu­man cap­i­tal.

NBK train­ing pro­grams are parts of a con­tin­u­ous process to de­velop and grow young tal­ents. The ini­tia­tive pro­vides the trainees with the right en­vi­ron­ment in which they have the op­por­tu­nity to in­crease their un­der­stand­ing on the the­o­ret­i­cal, tech­ni­cal and prac­ti­cal func­tion­al­i­ties of var­i­ous Ma­jor Bank­ing Units.
