The Managing Director of Republic Bank (Ghana) PLC, Mr Benjamin Dzoboku, has hosted staff of the bank for the first time since his appointment in July, this year.
The event was to engage and connect with staff across the country in an informal setting to interact, have fun and discuss the progress of the bank.
The engagement was held in Kumasi for the northern sector staff and in Accra for the southern sector staff.
It was on the theme of People, Purpose, Performance and Progress.
According to a release issued in Accra, Mr Dzoboku said the choice of the theme was based on the kind of future he, together with the board of directors, plan to build with the staff.
“Colleagues, it is essential to build camaraderie amongst ourselves while we build our future together.
I am happy about the fact that we are building this all-inclusive future not only by ourselves and the executive management team but, with support from our board of directors to help achieve the strategic goals of the bank, keeping our cherished customer as the focal point,” he said.
“Just as espoused in our bank’s declaration of purpose – We value people, we serve with heart, we are deeply committed to your success, we care. This remains as our mantra to succeed” Mr Dzoboku said.
He expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to interact and have fun with all staff outside the office setting.
He assured the team of his zeal and passion for leading the bank to great success, becoming the bank of choice for the staff, customers and shareholders.
According to Mr Dzoboku, people are the bank’s most significant assets, hence the need to always be in contact with staff to bond “as one Big Blue Family.”
He encouraged the staff to shine in their own small ways, which would in turn shine on the entire bank and its customers.
