Thus, ours is a culture that values professionalism, teamwork, openness, diversity, respect for individual values and recognition. Whilst high performance standards are expected, employees are encouraged and supported to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Transparency and equitability are also of great importance and we continuously strive to improve HR processes and procedures that reinforce these values.
One of our strengths is that we have extensive knowledge in various industries, and this knowledge is freely available to anyone who is eager to learn. Employees can move into different areas of the business, and the opportunities are many.
In terms of learning and development, DFCC Bank’s commitment to nurture inherent talent and maximise individual potential of employees ensures that the Bank invests substantially in development of staff. Training is provided both locally and internationally with programs designed to suit the competency requirement of both the individuals and the Bank.
We believe in differentiating rewards based on performance and potential. Therefore, employees are rewarded based on their specific quarterly or annual goals. In addition, we strongly believe in our company values and have a scheme in place to recognise employees who have demonstrated these values as nominated by their peers. This is held on a quarterly basis where recognition is given in the presence of Directors of the Board and CEO of DFCC Bank. Additionally awards are also given, recognizing individuals and teams that have performed exceptionally during a particular year.
Our responsibility towards our employees also includes an unwavering stance on gender equality, non-discriminatory practices, and employment of the differently-abled.
