The management of Skye Bank Plc has announced the promotion of over 300 of its employees under the 2016 annual staff performance review exercise. The promotion, which cuts across several cadres up to the managerial level, according to the bank, is in line with its effort to reward staff members who performed creditably in their various roles during the past financial year.
The bank also announced that it compensated some staff members in the senior management cadre with monetary rewards for their diligence and productivity, while 55 staff members who failed in the performance appraisal exercise on account of poor performance were sacked. “The management of the bank has since approved payment of the entitlement and severance packages to the exited staff as contained in their engagement letters and as agreed with the workers’ union,” it said in a statement.
While announcing the outcome of the annual performance exercise, the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Skye Bank, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru, congratulated all staff members of the bank for their hard work in the last financial year, especially given the challenging operating environment. He said, “We will continue to reward our staff who display high level of commitment towards their responsibilities and the bank’s strategic objectives. A performance-driven organisation is critical to the achievement of the bank’s overarching objectives.”
Abiru urged the newly-elevated staff members to see their promotion as a call to re-dedicate themselves to excellence, adding that those who deliver consistently on the job would earn commensurate benefits that befit high performers.
