ACCESS Bank Plc has announced the promotion of 800 employees following a transparent and robust performance management review in line with global best practices.
This announcement comes as the financial company shores up its transition to a Holding Company (Holdco) starting May 1, 2022. The bank’s consistent growth over the years has been due to the immeasurable effort and sacrifice of its employees.
The bank in a release said: “the beneficiaries of this wholescale performance review exercise spanned the Bank’s senior, middle, and junior management levels even as the management strives to continuously put employees in the best position to grow and be successful in today’s highly competitive work environment.
“Over the years, Access Bank has demonstrated that employee performance and rewards remain a critical pillar of the Bank’s business operations. The bank has consistently provided adequate resources to deepen core job skills while entrenching a culture of high performance amongst employees. ”It added that, “the bank’s penchant for rewarding high performance is particularly highlighted by the annual CEO Awards, one of the programs under its ‘We Clap Initiative’ which is designed to support the development of a culture of excellence as well as motivate employees and teams for superior performance.”
Recently, Access Bank was named the best institution to work in Nigeria by global professional network company, LinkedIn, having assessed data across seven pillars that serve as identifiers of career progression, namely: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and spread of educational backgrounds.
