LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow)- Standard Bank Malawi has sent four of its outstanding employees on a luxury boat cruise to Europe as a token of appreciation for their excellent performance in 2014.
The four are Dora Mangulama, Ben Chakachadza, Bamusi Mapfupa and Charles Namanja Jnr. They excelled in their respective areas of expertise of Customer Service and Sales under PBB.
Head of Personal and Business Banking (PBB) Margaret Kubwalo-Chaika said the luxury boat cruise is an annual initiative of the Standard Bank Group aimed at motivating excellence in individual performance under the bank’s PBB ‘Mark of Excellence Awards’
She said the four Malawians joined 120 other winners from Standard Bank group operations in Africa aboard the ‘Allure of the Seas’ cruise ship between Barcelona in Spain to Rome, in Italy.
“As an employer of choice for choice employees, Standard Bank recognizes excellent individual efforts that contribute to the overall success of the bank’s business. We have set the bar very high and for anyone to win the Excellence Awards under PBB, which uses a group rating matrix means that they’re indeed outstanding in the business,” said Kubwalo-Chaika.
The PBB head said the Excellence Awards rating matrix measures Innovation, Making Standard Bank Best Workplace, Customer Service, Sales Excellence, Efficiency and Leadership Excellence.
“Let me therefore join the rest of the Standard Bank Malawi family to congratulate these four performers, and wish them a safe adventure during their cruise. By winning in the Excellence Awards, these four have become a model of excellence to other employees in the bank, and our hope is that this opportunity will inspire them to scale even greater career heights within the bank,” she said.
