HSBC in­au­gu­rates its new of­fices in Al Hamra Tower

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

HSBC Bank Mid­dle East Lim­ited in Kuwait in­au­gu­rated the new of­fices in Al Hamra Tower yes­ter­day dur­ing a spe­cial event at­tended by The Lord Mayor of Lon­don, dig­ni­taries from the Bri­tish Em­bassy in Kuwait and cus­tomers. This was the of­fi­cial open­ing of the new of­fices that are lo­cated on the 37th Floor in Al Hamra Tower. Dur­ing the event Roger Win­field, CEO of HSBC in Kuwait said: “HSBC’s his­tory in Kuwait dates back over 70 years since its first branch was es­tab­lished, and more than a decade since its re­turn to the coun­try in 2005.

The Bank has wit­nessed the coun­try’s eco­nomic growth and es­tab­lished key re­la­tion­ships with gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties and lo­cal large busi­nesses in sup­port of their growth am­bi­tions.” The new of­fices in Al Hamra Tower bring the Bank closer to the business hub of the city and even closer to its clients. It also gives HSBC eas­ier ac­cess to de­ci­sion-mak­ing cen­ters and will stream­line ser­vice of­fer­ings to its cur­rent cus­tomers.

HSBC val­ues the im­por­tance of good qual­ity work­ing en­vi­ron­ments for its em­ploy­ees, and the new of­fices un­der­line the value of in­vest­ing in their well-be­ing. The Bank adapted the new lay-out to be in line with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards that of­fer open of­fice spaces, ac­cess to break-out rooms and state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties for meet­ings. Al Hamra Tower was re­cently awarded with the “Smartest Build­ing” in Kuwait award based on its con­nec­tiv­ity, safety, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity of life it of­fers to its oc­cu­pants.

“We un­der­stand the im­por­tance of a work­ing en­vi­ron­ment that is con­ducive to friendly and open work­ing con­di­tions that en­hances em­ployee en­gage­ment and pro­duc­tiv­ity. Our em­ploy­ees are our most valu­able as­set and an in­vest­ment of this kind is proof to the pri­or­ity that we place on their well-be­ing,” Roger Win­field added. The Bank, over the last decade, also greatly in­vested in the na­tion­al­iza­tion of its work­force and has a grow­ing num­ber of Kuwaiti em­ploy­ees. “In­vest­ing in the development of lo­cal tal­ent is equally im­por­tant. We are an in­ter­na­tional bank in Kuwait and need to in­vest in the lo­cal hu­man cap­i­tal for the sus­tain­able growth of the com­mu­nity and its peo­ple.” Roger con­cluded.
