Access Bank

Access Bank Plc has announced the promotion of 800 of its employees following a performance management review.

The announcement came as the financial institution shored up its transition to a holding company (Holdco) beginning from May 1.

A statement from the bank explained that its consistent growth over the years had been due to the immeasurable effort and sacrifice of its employees.

“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,” the statement said.

It added that the bank’s penchant for rewarding high performance was particularly highlighted by the annual CEO Awards, one of the programmes under its ‘We Clap Initiative’ which was designed to support the development of a culture of excellence as well as motivate employees and teams for superior performance.
