The Civil Service Commission and Manpower Restructuring Program granted Kuwait Finance House (KFH) an award for recruiting Kuwaiti employees in 2012, since KFH topped all other local banks and the private sector in that field. The award was granted on the sideline of the 8th Recruitment Forum that was held under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah . This award cements KFH’s leadership in recruiting young Kuwaiti employees, which allows them to gain practical experience in the field of work.
KFH Human Resources and Services Department Manager Mohammed Al-Jallal received the award on behalf of KFH, and stated that KFH will continue to support Kuwaitis working in the banking, financing, and investment fields. He added that KFH is keen to recruit and train Kuwaiti youths, and stressed that employees are the pillars for any economic development. He revealed that KFH had launched a program to recruit Kuwaiti employees eight years ago in conjunction with Restructuring Program. He went on to say that during those years, 1075 employees were trained, where 165 of them were trained last year. This led to a stable 62% of Kuwaiti employees at KFH.
Moreover, he said that over 25% of KFH employees are females, which underlines KFH’s keenness to support female employees and clients through offering them their own branches. He noted that the bank offered over 6500 training opportunities through over 350 programs, including e-learning programs that were launched six years ago.
Furthermore, he explained that KFH work environment is diverse, which makes KFH a step ahead of other banks in the field of training and investment in its employees. He stressed that KFH is keen to take part in job fairs that are held every year to recruit Kuwaiti youths.
