KFH Bahrain – A Day Out with MD & CEO

Kuwait Finance House – Bahrain (KFH-Bahrain) recently held its monthly day out with the Bank’s Managing Director and CEO, Mr. Abdulhakeem Alkhayyat, where 19 staff were selected from the Bank’s different departments, and were given an opportunity to spend a day out of the office. The meeting was arranged by the Human Resource Department and was held at the ‘Capital Club’ located in the Bahrain Financial Harbour.

Organised by the Human Resources Department, as part of the Banks Policy, this initiative continues to prove successful and has contributed highly towards maintaining and strengthening communication bridges between the Managing Director & CEO and the Bank’s employees. Staff were given an opportunity to discuss openly about different issues regarding the Bank in a friendly and relaxing environment; followed by a lunch together to spend some quality time away from the usual work routine.

The participants discussed a range of topics which included, the Bank’s Strategy, the expectations built on the employees within conditions under their control, the importance of self-assessment, managing self-performance and self-motivation, how the employee is developed within the Bank through organizational skills, preparation and making the most out of opportunities. In addition to encourage the employees to enrol in Academic and Professional Training programmes.

Among others, further additional topics that were addressed were how to enhance the customer experience, the implementation of new technology and discussions of ways to make the Bank’s operations more efficient, not only through improving infrastructure but also through the individual effort of the employees and the targeting new markets with existing products. Participants provided suggestions to enhance the work environment, which will help to increase productivity of the Bank.

Mr. Abdulhakeem Alkhayyat emphasised “One of the key assets for any successful organization are its people. As part of our Policy the members of the KFH-Bahrain family are always being encouraged to be leaders who will contribute, Allah willing, towards taking the Bank forward into a promising future, while emphasising the importance of team work in achieving the Bank’s goals”

“Banking is a very complex business, so having face-to-face meetings between the staff and the management outside the bank environment, can help promoting the sharing of thoughts, future plans and decisions in order to ensure success. Any recommendations made during these meetings are followed-up to ensure immediate actions and timely implementation is undertaken by the Bank departments” he added.
