Wema Bank announced that it had promoted over 214 of its staff members amid the difficulties imposed on businesses in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The promotion of the staff members was disclosed by the Chief Human Resources Officer, Wema Bank, Ololade Ogungbenro who said that it was part of the scheme to maintain the workforce and good performance of workers of Wema Bank.

The promotion was carried out at all levels and departments in the bank including senior, middle and junior staff.

“2020 has been a difficult year for all us, but as a bank, we have had to depend on the commitment, innovative efforts, passion and dedication of our staff to ensure we continue to deliver refreshing digital solutions to our teeming customers, " Ogungbenro said.

“Wema Bank is known for maintaining a motivated workforce with high standards of professionalism, innovation and excellence.

"Despite the current challenges of the Nigerian business terrain, the recent promotion is our way to reassure staff of the bank’s commitment to maintaining overall workforce motivation and support their career growth."

Ogungbenro said that due to the effect of coronavirus, it was not possible to promote more staff. Still, the bank has brought a training scheme that will help every Wema bank staff to develop their individual career growth and productivity.

“While it may be practically impossible to promote everyone, measures have been taken to ensure the career growth of all staff through special courses, training and other strategic partnerships, " Ogungbenro added.

“We have rebuilt our training school, the Purple Academy, which serves as a pathway for new staff to join the bank as well as a learning centre for staff members to increase individual and organisational productivity.

“We have also partnered with Coursera, one of the largest online courses and training platform in the world, to deliver free courses to staff to enable an increase in capacity, modern-day work practices and knowledge across several areas,” she explained.
