(MENAFN - Arab Times) Human Resources and General Services General Manager at Kuwait Finance House (KFH) Zeyad Al-Omar asserted that training and developing employees positively impacts all KFH indicators, in addition to upgrading its regional and global status. He highlighted the importance of training courses and workshops, since they hone the skills of employees, and boost their productivity. Al-Omar added during a speech he made at the closure of a training course that was attended by Wholesale Banking General Manager Peter Verhoven, and Learning and Development Executive Manager Emad Mirza, that the course prepared by KFH for Finance Sector employees includes financial analysis, credit risk analysis, treasury management, monetary and trading management, administrative sales skills, and credit applications



He noted that such courses are part of KFH's strategy to develop its human resources to meet their job requirements; especially that employees are an asset, and a long and short-term investment. He explained that KFH trained employees who are capable of supporting and developing Islamic banking industry, which is considered to be an added value to the econoy and the society. Moreover, he mentioned that KFH leads the private sector in training, which is evident by winning a training award from the Civil Service Commission. He also pointed out that KFH has extensive experience in setting training programs that are custom tailored to the needs of each employee.




Meanwhile, Verhoven stated that shedding light on the main aspects of credit, the appropriate financing means for every business, the risks associated with various businesses, and the means to cover those risks, are the cornerstone of banking. He went on to say that courses in credit analysis are vital because they play a pivotal role in reinforcing the bank's results and performance. He said that all banks seek to maintain financial stability and the money of depositors. He stressed the importance of having sufficient knowledge and skills to work in the field of wholesale financing, liquidity management, and treasury management. It is worth noting that certificates were distributed to 40 employees. Three of those employees were from KFH-Bahrain, which underscores the bank's efforts to cement cooperation across the group in various fields
