Diamond Bank Plc has announced the promotion of more than 450 of its staff across various grade levels.
According to the bank’s Head of Corporate Communications Division, Mrs. Ayona Trimnell, “this recent promotion exercise is part of the bank’s annual performance review exercise as the bank seeks to continuously recognize and reward members of staff who have excelled in the workplace. At Diamond, we have always maintained that the Bank’s performance is linked to the quality of the staff it retains. As such, in the last few days, more than 450members of staff who have excelled have been promoted”.
This recent promotion exercise marks a double celebration for staff of the Bank as the Bank recently declared an unprecedented profit after tax of N28.5billion for the last financial year ended. This signifies an impressive 29% growth in the Bank’s profit in an industry that showed largely dwindling financial performance in the last financial year as a result of stifling regulations and negative global economic outcomes.
“For us to continue to perform excellently like we did in 2013, we have to recruit and retain the best people in the industry. That is why, every year, we recruit the best talent in the industry, and also assess our staff on the basis of key performance indicators (KPIs) and deliverables,” Trimnell said.
Diamond Bank has consistently emerged as one of the largest employer of talent in the Nigerian Banking industry with well over 2,224 new recruits in the last financial year, of which 1,181 are fresh graduates from reputable Universities around the country. The Bank boasts of a robust personnel engagement strategy that helps it to continually attract and retain the best talent in the industry. This is in fulfillment of its corporate vision of becoming a leading financial institution, with the best people, providing unequalled customer experience and delivering superior shareholder value.
