HIGHLIGHTS

In its continuous quest to better serve the banking sector and its human capital, the Association of Banks in Lebanon has created in april 2016 a Human Resources Development (HRD) department to grow beyond its training service capabilities.

This department aims to develop the HR departments in banks by coordinating with concerned parties on banking industry trends and employment legislation. Its goal is to assist and support banks in implementing best HR competency based practices and provide them with relevant statistical data and metrics while ensuring their compliance with HR resolutions, namely the Collective Labor Agreement.

Accordingly, the Human Resources Development department role will encompass the following sections:

1- Organizational Development

Assist banks in designing talent management / succession planning, compensation, grading systems and performance management programs based on best practices.

2- Corporate Social Responsibility

Assist banks to become more sustainable and socially responsible in addressing areas such as employees’ wellness, energy use, waste reduction, carbon footprint, civic role, capacity building, etc…

3- Learning and Development:

Keep organizing public and in-house training activities (conferences, workshops, seminars, short courses…) for employees of the banking sector while covering all Lebanese territories, according to a training calendar agreed upon with ABL / HR and social affairs committee and approved by the board of directors of the association.

The training Program of 2017 has been published and diffused at the beginning of this year. As for the time schedule, it is announced to Banks’ General Managers and Heads of Human Resources Departments once agreed upon with trainers. Registrations for the training activities are made by banks’ management that can apply via e-mail by filling the registration form, as well as through the classical ways of communication (i.e. mail, telephone, fax). Also, the department appreciates pertaining suggestions and comments. Also, the precedent  annual activities of the department are shown in the 2015 activities report.

The activities of the previous month of the HRD department are described in the ABL Monthly Bulletin, where details such as the main topics discussed during the activities, trainers, number of participants, location and sometimes recommendations submitted to banks’ management or supervisory authorities.
