The two teams, 'Victorious Secret' and 'Innov8', were among 12 teams entered by the Bank under the umbrella team title 'Team Gulf Bank'. Two teams from Team Gulf Bank were among 6 teams that reached the 2014 Global Management Challenge Kuwait finals, all competing to earn the right to represent Kuwait in the global final, which will be held in Sochi, Russia. Gulf Bank's team "Innov8" received the 2nd place prize and was awarded with the "Highest Investment Performance Boost in One Quarter" award



Commenting on the teams' achievement, Mrs Salma Al-Hajjaj, General Manager of Human Resources at Gulf Bank said: "We are very proud that two of our teams have got to the national stage of this prestigious competition. Gulf Bank's support for this initiative underlines our commitment to investing in people and providing opportunities for them to develop as individuals. In addition Gulf Bank continues to support young people in the community by sponsoring university students to partake in this competition. Our corporate social responsibility mission is focused on preparing youth to become tomorrow's business generation, so that when they graduate, they will have the skills and tools to compete in a world- class commercial environment.
