The Values is composed of three main values and each of the value is comprised of three behaviors, reflecting the Bank’s business conduct models. For instance, the notion “This is our bank” “This is our bank” is reflected in the maximum performance attained by all employees as they carry out their jobs devotedly and enforce this value in their attitudes towards all stakeholders that they touch; all employees know what that means.
Employee career and development model measures the extent to which these values are enforced by the employees through performance assessments; specific educational and
developmental tools are made available as part of the development plan resulting from these measurements, which also aim to ensure continued development throughout the year. In addition, adherence to values is addressed in a dedicated category in the reward program.
