Stan­bic IBTC gets CIPM’S recog­ni­tion

The Punch - - BANKING PERSONAL -

STAN­BIC IBTC Bank Plc, a sub­sidiary of Stan­bic IBTC Hold­ings Plc, has re­ceived recog­ni­tions at the HR Best Prac­tice Awards or­gan­ised by the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment in La­gos.

A state­ment said the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion emerged as the win­ner of the ‘Most Strate­gic Hu­man Re­sources’ Award; and the ‘Best Di­ver­sity and In­clu­sion’ Award.

It stated that this fol­lowed its no­tice­able ef­forts at im­ple­ment­ing notable HR prac­tices and be­ing un­bi­ased in its ap­proach to per­son­nel man­age­ment in the bank­ing sec­tor and in the coun­try at large.

Stan­bic IBTC prides it­self in giv­ing all em­ploy­ees a fair play­ing ground, with­out dis­crim­i­nat­ing against their colour, gen­der, race and eth­nic­ity, the state­ment said.

A former Chair­man/man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Mo­bil Oil Nige­ria Plc, Mr Olu Onakoya, who was a spe­cial guest of hon­our at the event, em­pha­sised the evo­lu­tion that had taken place in HR prac­tices in the mod­ern age.

He stated, “Like wa­ter un­der the bridge are days when the HR pro­fes­sion was only sad­dled with the re­spon­si­bil­ity of hir­ing and fir­ing em­ploy­ees. The con­tem­po­rary HR over­sees all things re­lated to man­ag­ing an or­gan­i­sa­tion’s most im­por­tant as­set — its hu­man cap­i­tal.

“It en­sures that they are nur­tured and sup­ported through the cre­ation and man­age­ment of pro­grammes, poli­cies, and pro­ce­dures. To­day’s HR is also re­spon­si­ble for fos­ter­ing a pos­i­tive work en­vi­ron­ment through ef­fec­tive em­ployee-em­ployer re­la­tions, en­gage­ment, and ed­u­ca­tion.”
