Fidelity Bank Plc has promoted a total of 963 employees after its 2014 annual staff performance appraisal which ended last week.
The bank said this was part of the bank’s efforts of rewarding and motivating hard-working, committed and efficient staff members for higher productivity.
The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, was quoted in a statement as saying that the move was in keeping with the bank’s avowed commitment to every member of Fidelity staff to reward excellence and exceptional individual performance.
He said, “In line with our commitment to ensuring people happiness and rewarding good performance, the names of our colleagues who qualified for promotion under the earlier advised criteria have now been released.”
According to Okonkwo, Fidelity maintains high professional culture, where exceptional performance, innovativeness and hard work are recognised and rewarded.
He said, “Despite the expectations that this financial year will be tougher than last year, our bank took the unprecedented step of elevating a total of 963 people.”
Okonkwo, who congratulated the beneficiaries, urged them to redouble their efforts towards achieving a better financial result this year.
“Our aim is to remain an employer of choice, and to achieve this we have to continuously motivate our people,” he said.
