Muscat – In line with its vision and mission to create a market-leading workforce, National Bank of Oman (NBO) has launched its new employee-focused HiPotential Identification program. The first phase of evaluations under the program has been completed through an assessment centre, where bank employees including its Islamic banking window, Muzn, were taken through a series of online assessments and interviews. Out of their results, a pool of ‘Hi-Potential’ candidates has been identified, who will then be provided with customised development plans that will chart out their ongoing progression and upskill them for professional growth. In the next batch of assessments, the bank will target additional employees.

“Our people are at the heart of what we do and are our most important assets, and as such, we have always strived to help them reach their development goals. The Assessment Centre has been designed using industry leading practices and strengthens our endeavours to identify, groom and grow a leadership pipeline from within,” said Nasser Al Hajri, Chief Operating Officer at NBO. “We have a huge pool of talent at the bank and we are commited to equipping them with the tools and techniques to be able to contribute to a self-reliant, engaged, and future-ready workforce, while opening up greater opportunities for them in the future.”

The HiPotential Identification program is one of many strategic interventions that are being launched as part of the bank’s commitment to create and sustain a strong performance-based culture. Recently, the bank also joined the nationwide Etimad initiative to train Omanis for middle and senior management positions. Meanwhile, its in-house training arm, the Academy of Excellence, has been helping its employees meet

their professional goals for more than 10 years, with a number of training courses, programmes, and internship opportunities.
