Here’s the corporate straight jacket, see if it fits
“Our biggest investment is you, the people in the organisation” said Capricorn Group Managing Director, Thinus Prinsloo when he welcomed twenty two new individuals into the Bank Windhoek fold.
The group of new employees completed a two-day induction course earlier this week to make sure they conform to the bank’s general ethos and standards. All first-time Bank Windhoek employees, regardless of age or seniority, have to attend the New Employee Orientation Programme, conducted by the bank’s People Development department.
The course started with the introduction of the bank’s executive and senior managers, then proceeded to the bank’s culture, its core functions and structures, and finally moving to the relationship between employer and employee.
“The orientation programme welcomes new employees into the organisation and prepares them for their new role. The process also covers the employer and employee rights and the terms and conditions of employment,” said the Manager of People Development, Fillimon Ngairo.
Managing Director, Baronice Hans emphasised the importance of customer satisfaction urging all the new employees never to forget that the customer comes first. “In terms of Corporate Social Investment, we want to make sure that Namibia is a better country because Bank Windhoek is here,” she said.
Executive Officer of Human Capital and Citizenship, Stephanie Viljoen, said “I hope you will enjoy your two-day New Employee Orientation Programme where you will get to know Bank Windhoek’s culture in terms of how we operate as a friendly, welcoming and fully Namibian bank.”
