Fidelity Bank has announced the promotion of 745 employees following the performance review of two financial years 2019 and 2020.
This, it said, would increase staff morale while empowering them to work efficiently.
A total of 461 staff members benefited from the full year 2019 promotion exercise, while 284 staff members benefited from the full 2020 exercise.
The beneficiaries cut across senior, middle and junior management cadres of the bank, and the promotion was based on merit, using a transparent and robust performance management system in line with global best practice.
Speaking on the exercise, managing director/chief executive officer, Fidelity Bank, Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe said: “I am very delighted to announce the promotions for 2019 and 2020 financial years. Releasing the list for two financial years’ promotion at the same time, is something we are very proud of.
“We strongly believe that the continuous growth of our bank over the years has been largely attributed to the commendable efforts and unrelenting sacrifices of our employees. Promotion is one of the many ways we express our gratitude. We are thankful to be a home to many amazing talents that continue to drive our value and most importantly, serve our stakeholders in the highest standards.”
Speaking further, she said: “since I was appointed the MD/CEO of our great bank in January 2021, I have been committed to a seven-point agenda to move our bank further, out of which workforce transformation is a key category. Staff performance and reward is critical to us, and as an organisation, we will continue to make available adequate resources to deepen the skills and entrench a culture of high performance amongst employees.”
She commended the members of the Fidelity Bank family for their commitment and drive, and unrelenting sacrifices towards delivering its objectives, saying, “as we move forward in our quest to becoming a leading tier-one bank, I encourage all elevated staff to see their promotion as a call to rededicate themselves to excellence.”
Fidelity Bank has continued to empower its employees with invaluable resources capable of putting them at the forefront of innovative transformation.
