Twenty-four training programmes were organised internally and 56 in cooperation with external training centres.

The bank intends to organise more than 140 training programmes annually.

Head of Human Resource Group in Sharjah Islamic Bank, Saeed Mohammad Al Amiri, said: “These training programmes will include different sectors related to Administration, Self-development, Banking Accounts, Islamic Banking, Languages, Writing Skills, Preparing Reports, Quality and Customer Services.

These programmes will benefit more than 2,200 participants from all our different branches, departments and sections.”

The bank plans to increase its staff strength from 374 to 700 within the next three years to meet the increase in the demand of the Bank.

One of the main objectives of the bank is continuous development.

“The bank was recently given the ‘Training & Localisation Award’ by the Accounts and Auditors Association in Abu Dhabi. We see it as a clear proof of the bank’s continuous commitment towards providing proper training to its employees,” Amiri added.

The bank’s Board of Directors aim at occupying a prominent position amongst other Islamic banks.

The bank has increased its localisation percentage from 38 per cent to 45 per cent within the last two years as part of Emiratisation.

This percentage is expected to reach 50 per cent during the year 2007
