(MENAFN - Arab Times) In an unprecedented step in the private sector in Kuwait, Kuwait Finance House (KFH) launched a medical leave service for its employees. The new service links KFH's human resources system 'Oracle' to Kuwait's civil service system, which allows for logging in any medical leaves. This comes as a step in KFH's strategy to automate work procedures. Executive Manager Personnel Affairs Mohammed Al-Jallal stated that such a step facilitates procedures followed by employees who need a sick leave note at governmental clinics. He added that the employee needs to enter the details of his sick leave and the diagnosis of the doctor on Oracle. After the leave is over, the employee can resume working without the need to log into the Oracle system to apply for a return from leave request that had to be approved by the employee's supervisor.



Moreover, Al-Jallal explained that governmental clinics will be linked to the Civil Service Commission that will notify KFH electronically of the sick leave. He noted that this service applies for governmental clinics only now, since private sector clinics will be linked to the system later on. He added that such services aim to improve the performance of the Human Resources, and stressed that KFH will work relentlessly to offer new services through its Human Resources, since it is one of the bank's most important assets, not to mention being a long-term investment. KFH was established in Kuwait in 1977 and is enlisted in the Kuwait Stock Exchange. KFH Group is a global pioneer in the field of Islamic banking services, where it offers a wide array of Islamic products and services, not to mention a high standard of innovation and client service.



KFH manages its operations in the GCC, Asia, and Europe through over 310 branches, including KFH-Turkey, in order to offer services for the bank's clients in Turkey, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Australia, Jordan, Dubai, and Manheim in Germany. KFH's mission is to achieve highest levels of excellence and innovation in the field of client service, while developing common interest for all those concerned with the financial institution. KFH's vision is to spearhead the global development in Islamic financial services, and to upgrade the bank into the level of becoming the most sustainable profitable Islamic bank in the world. KFH's values include cementing leadership through all its businesses, including leadership in the Islamic banking services worldwide, through innovation and in client service and the development of its employees. In addition, KFH is committed to all its procedures, and to setting up long-life partnerships with the concerned authorities
