Kuwait Finance House (KFH) CEO Mazen Al-Nahedh stated that part of the challenge for KFH, to cement its leading status as best bank in Kuwait, relies on the collective efforts especially from youths, to boost level of service, quality, and the innovation of new products and services. He went on to say that the younger generations of Kuwaiti employees will be playing a prominent role in the coming period, after their skills are honed professionally. He noted that KFH has a clear plan to establish a generation of future leaders who can implement the bank’s ambitious plans.
Moreover, Al-Nahedh mentioned during a speech to 23 new employees who were recruited after a six-months training program, that preparing future leaders requires strenuous efforts asserting that its mid and long-term results are fruitful. He said that investing in the development of employees will allow the bank to achieve better returns, especially since KFH is planning to expand its main operations and businesses, in addition to improving quality and increasing market share. He applauded the training program, and considered it a step forward to accomplishing the management’s goals.
Meanwhile, General Manager of Human Resources and General Services Zeyad Al-Omar asked the new recruits to take advantage of what they had learned to support various operations; especially since the program included a practical course, where trainees were rotated amongst the bank’s departments and sectors to gain a broader scope of vision. He stressed that collaboration amongst employees can help them in overcoming any challenges they might face.
It is worth noting that the training program is one of the most important and best paradigm programs in the fields of credit and finance. The trainees, during a six-month course, were engaged in theoretical and practical training in finance, credit, accounting, and field visits to all business areas at KFH.
