Doha Bank hosted recently its annual quiz competition for staff which saw 12 teams from various business and operating units compete against each other for the top prize. The competition featured themed questions in the first round, during which the teams answered questions on predetermined subjects, while in the subsequent rounds the topics were pulled out of a hat.

This year’s competition was an engaging, closely fought affair from the start as the teams vied for the five hot seats, with the winners making it through to the final round by the slimmest of margins. The tight competition continued in the finals and eventually, Team “Red Hocks” were crowned winners with “JKM” and “RTM Heroes” securing second and third places. “Team AVD” and “Team FIT” rounded out the top five. The teams that made it to the final 5 were composed of staff members drawn from various departments and different nationalities.

Seetharaman, Group CEO of Doha Bank, said, “The annual quiz competition provides an opportunity for staff at different levels of the organization to match wits and test their knowledge of current affairs as well as of specific topics and subject areas. The competition ties in nicely with Doha Bank’s focus on employee training and development and our commitment to providing our staff with continuous opportunities for personal and professional growth.”

He added, “Engaging employees through activities staged within a learning-oriented yet fun-filled environment helps to boost their confidence and knowledge while making them more emotionally connected to the organization and more enthusiastic about their work. This in turn leads to measurable business outcomes and, ultimately, more satisfied customers.” Extending his congratulations to the winners, Dr. Seetharaman noted that the competition would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and hard work of the organizers and volunteers, and expressed his gratitude to all those who contributed to the event’s success.
