HSBC Bank Oman recently organised a series of innovative two day internal training workshops for more than 40 staff members entitled ‘Al Ro’ya Career Development Programme’.
The programme was designed to fast-track career progression of highly talented Omanis through constant assessments, behavioural, and developmental reviews as well as career discussions with assigned managers.
Facilitated by a Chartered Psychologist, the ‘Al Ro’ya Career Development Programme’ featured a range of exercises and trained HSBC Bank Oman staff in a variety of soft, managerial and technical skills.
Participants learned self-motivational and interactive techniques in addition to key leadership skills to prepare them for future managerial positions.
