Khaleeji Commercial Bank (KHCB), one of Bahrain’s leading Islamic retail banks, recently held their 3rd luncheon, as part of their recent initiative in selecting random employees to have lunch with the Chief Executive Officer of KHCB, Mr. Khalil Al Meer. These monthly gatherings cater towards improving communication and developing engagement between the staff members of the Bank and the top level management.
The lunch took place on Sunday, the 16th of August, 2015, and with each session being used to address a specific theme, this particular meeting centered on ‘Engagement and Enablement’ with an aim to involve staff members in improving the services of the bank through their own feedback in regards to the work environment and job responsibilities.
Elaborating on the significance, originality and advantageous nature of the initiative, Mr. Khalil Al Meer, Chief Executive Officer of KHCB said: “A satisfied employee contributes to the success of the organization, therefore, it is imperative that we not only look into the needs of the customers, but also ensure that our personnel are well taken care of. In promoting the feeling of homogeneity among the teams, this effort exemplifies our commitment towards providing a barrier-free work zone that creates opportunities for growth and enhancement from within.”
The luncheon is the brainchild of the Human Resources Department of KHCB and stems from its duty to promote the concept of freedom of expression and personal opinion among the Bank’s employees.
Topics relating to work productivity and opportunity at work were raised and discussed, to offer a more positive and rewarding work environment for the staff, hence boosting the morale of the workforce and driving them to reflect a healthy organization that strives to instill a unified work ethic among its departments.
