APS Bank champions its people’s academic achievements

APS bank recently held a Qualifications Award Ceremony to formally acknowledge and celebrate its people’s academic achievements. The event is a regular one although this was the first to be hosted in the Bank’s new conference facilities at its Head Office in Swatar.

Chairman Frederick Mifsud Bonnici distributed awards to staff members who recently obtained Certificates, Diplomas, Bachelor and Master degrees in the presence of Senior Management and their colleagues. Acknowledging the importance of academic achievements and thanking staff for managing their work and study commitments effectively, Mr. Mifsud Bonnici reiterated that along with academic success, customer centricity and service is an implicit requirement and must be foremost in all our endeavours.

Commenting about the event, Ray Bonnici, Head of Human Capital, said that these achievements complement the Bank’s highly skilled workforce and enrich their academic and practical knowledge across a wide spectrum of subjects. The Bank has a Professional Development programme that financially supports its employees to develop their professional skills in specialised areas. He added that this is in line with the Bank’s commitment to support the personal and career development of its people, and such ceremonies serve to formally acknowledge and celebrate people’s achievements.
