This realization underscores the importance of sustaining a healthy work environment, which is pivotal for the Bank’s business growth. She further elaborated that employees who receive ample personal and professional support to grow are more likely to give back to their workplace by tending to their duties with top performance and limitless creativity.
Burgan Bank’s award-winning workplace additionally grows from the institution’s open-door policy and constant support for interdepartmental collaboration that allows for expertise and creativity to flow across the Bank’s teams and job levels, Abdullah explained. This further cultivates the culture of shared knowledge and collective growth.
