    BIBD training programme gets a thumbs up

    Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam’s (BIBD) Graduate Management Training (GMT) programme has been recognised as among the region’s best at the inaugural Employee Experience Awards 2021, a platform rewarding top-notch human resource (HR) teams and individuals with business stories that inspire, educate and move the dial on EX.

    The award is deeply rooted in the three pillars that are cornerstones for a positive EX – leadership, learning and employee engagement. The awards were evaluated by the most eminent senior HR experts and thought leaders in Asia.

    BIBD’s recognition as a winner in the Best GMT Programme category comes on the back of the bank recently welcoming five graduates under the programme, in which the specific award sees participation from regional multi-national organisations across various industries, recognising organisations’ efforts in developing high-calibre graduates that are either recent school leavers or those with one to two years of work experience.

    Award nominees are evaluated by their ability to display success in grooming young talents to become future leaders through an accelerated learning environment, formal training, purposeful business opportunities and professional development.

    BIBD Chief Human Resource Officer Habibah binti Haji Harry said, “We are delighted to receive this award from EXA Singapore and proud of the recognition as it reflects the quality of our programme in producing and nurturing talents who will eventually become the next crop of leaders for the organisation.”

    She added that they will continue to enhance their human capital experience, professionalism and excellence as the essential ingredients enabling them to move forward.

    BIBD’s GMT programme has a rigorous selection process which pools together the country’s best graduates.

    Habibah added that the programme is unique in a way that graduates are immediately tasked with driving their own business improvement projects upon joining. After completion, it can be incorporated into real work thus adding value to the organisation.

    “This forces them to be proactive and resourceful, to work independently yet creatively, and of course to quickly learn to network and build relationships with their colleagues, leaders and others,” she said.

    As BIBD seeks to position itself as the best Islamic bank in Asia-Pacific, the bank strongly believes the foundation of the country’s future relies significantly on the quality and efficiency of its people and this recent win is a testament to BIBD’s commitment to support the nation in achieving Brunei Vision 2035.

    It is also to achieve the wider goals outlined under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) specifically SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth.

    Underpinning these efforts is the bank’s continuous support for Maqasid Shariah, which speaks to the preservation and promotion of faith, life, the mind, of progeny and of wealth.
