QNB has recognised the success of employees who have completed an international best practice Credit Skills Development Programme at a graduation ceremony recently. The ceremony was hosted by The Human Capital Division and attended by QNB's Group chief credit officer and other senior leadership team members at QNB offices. The Credit Skills Development Programme is recognised by The Chartered Institute of Bankers and other leading banking institutions across the world. The programme promotes a greater work understanding of credit skills and the enhancement of 'uniform risk cultures' within organisations.

Such has been the success of the initial phase of The Credit Skills Development Programme that QNB has already confirmed that it will be undertaking a second series for selected employees later in the year. Within this phase of the programme, The Credit Skills Development Programme will be delivered to QNB employees operating in several international locations, which is made possible due to QNB learning and development providing a 'blended learning solution' of online learning, face-to-face workshops and varied work assessments.

Commenting on the success of the initiative, Fareeda Abulfath, Group chief credit officer, said,"Investing in people and career development is a core principle of QNB. The Bank encourages its employees to take responsibility for their careers and in return offers rewarding and varied opportunities to experience different parts of the QNB Group global business as well as building a valuable portfolio of skills, knowledge and capabilities. With the support of QNB's learning and development team, initiatives such as The Credit Skills Development Programme help our employees to apply best practices in a truly international work environment. We look forward to developing this concept further in the near future."
