The Saudi British Bank-SABB together with The British Council in Riyadh have developed and organized a number of growth and development workshops for SABB female staff. The workshops aim to empower female staff for better career path and development opportunities. As a programme of the collaboration agreement between SABB and the Council, the workshops, structured and implemented by female lecturers and training specialists certified by the Council, have been attended by a large number of SABB female employees.

The workshops covered a number of subjects such as assertiveness, setting personal and professional goals, building self-confidence, work-life balance, communication skills, and time management. The guest speakers shared their experiences and success stories with SABB female employees, which enriched the workshop content and recap. More than 350 female employees from various departments at SABB attended the workshops in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.

The participants’ positive feedback reflects their satisfaction of the enriched experiences shared in the workshops. The agreement between SABB and the British Council reflects the bank’s strategy to create new developmental opportunities for its employees of both genders. It also aims to develop its human resources and provide a professional environment which reflects positively on the bank and its employees.
