“Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast” Oscar Wilde once said. But not at Banif’s birthday breakfast for employees! On the contrary, it was all wit and banter as staff kick-started their day with a tasty buffet, hosted in the boardroom by the Bank’s Chief Officers.
Organised by the People Management and Development Unit, the Birthday Breakfast events were launched with the intention of acknowledging staff’s efforts and their commitment to the Bank, while increasing the opportunities where staff can get together informally.
“Banif takes pride in the team we have built, with a good number of employees having been with us since the very first days of the Bank’s operations,” said Adrian Coppini, Chief Officer responsible for People Management and Development Unit. “Celebrating birthdays together is a fun way of enhancing communication and of treating our team as a gesture of our appreciation. The Bank recognises that a strong workforce is the main catalyst of the success of its operations and investing in its team has always been a core element of Banif’s business plan.”
Banif Bank (Malta) plc employs a team of over 160 employees. The Bank adopts a number of policies and initiatives intended to make the employee’s experience at the Bank a positive one. These include having an open-door policy to facilitate communication, social events, specially negotiated retail discounts, insurances and preferential loan rates, among others.
