Diamond Bank has recently concluded its Annual Performance Review exercise. This is in line with global best practices where companies or institutions intermittently review their human resource talent as a means of achieving their corporate growth agenda.
According to Mrs. Ayona Trimnell, Head, Corporate Communications, Diamond Bank PLC, “The recent performance review is an annual exercise for us in Diamond as we seek to continuously recognize and reward members of staff who have excelled. We believe that a Bank’s performance is linked to the quality of the staff it retains. As such, we have promoted over 650 staff members who have excelled in their performance as well as disengage 61 members of staff who performed poorly in the last financial year.”
The statement also indicated that the performance review exercise is hinged on the Bank’s Enterprise Assessment Framework called the Balanced Score Card. The framework spells out carefully itemized parameters with which members of staff are measured and these parameters are communicated to staff at various points in the year under review. The framework equally stipulates the parameters for disengagement for underperforming staff.
Diamond Bank boasts of a robust personnel engagement strategy that helps it to continually attract and retain the best talents in the Nigerian Banking industry. This is in fulfillment of its corporate vision of becoming a leading financial institution, with the best people, providing unequaled customer experience and delivering superior shareholder value.
