Since 1991, the Training Department at the Association of Banks in Lebanon (ABL) has received a great deal of support from all ABL member banks. Over the years, the department, with the close cooperation of management in the banking sector, has worked to understand the needs of its labor force, and it has acted to satisfy those needs with the most advanced training techniques and methods, as is shown in the 2012 activities report. The training Program of 2014 targets all ranks in banks’ departments . It consists of 41 different activities. These activities could be of different types such as conferences, seminars, workshops or short courses. They can last from one to several days. The program has been published and diffused in the beginning of this year, and the time schedule will be announced to Banks’ General Managers and Heads of Human Resources Departments once agreed upon with trainers. The activities of the previous month are described in the ABL Monthly Bulletin, where you can find details concerning the main topics discussed during the activities, the trainers, the number of participants, the location and sometimes the recommendations submitted to banks’ management or supervisory authorities. Moreover, the training department can be of great help to banks requiring in house training for their employees. It can study their needs, provide them with a list of professional trainers, and tailor-made contents according to their requirements. In addition to its contribution to the completion of several banking manuals and guides, the training Department has summarized and edited some of its training activities in the ABL Resources. Registrations for our training activities are made by banks’ management that can apply from now on via e-mail by filling the registration form, as well as through the classical ways of communication (i. e. telephone, fax, post). Finally, we guarantee all interested parties that we’ll take into consideration all their suggestions and comments, in order to fulfill our mission in the best manner.
