Diamond Bank: “the largest employer of talent in the Nigerian banking industry”

Diamond Bank has recently concluded its Annual Performance Review exercise. This is in line with global best practices where institutions periodically review their human resource talent as a means of driving their corporate growth agenda.

According to Mrs. Ayona Trimnell, Head, Corporate Communications, Diamond Bank PLC, “The recent performance review is an annual exercise for us at Diamond as we seek to continuously recognize and reward members of staff who have excelled. We believe that the Bank’s performance is linked to the quality of the staff it retains. As such, in the last few days, 677 staff members who have excelled have been promoted, while 61 members of staff, who have consistently performed poorly over the last three years, have been disengaged.”

The statement also indicates that the performance review exercise is hinged on the Bank’s Enterprise Assessment Framework called the Balanced Score Card. The framework spells out carefully itemized parameters with which members of staff are measured and these parameters are communicated to all staff at the beginning of each financial year.

With well over 1,600 new recruits in the last financial year, of which 1,352 are fresh graduates from reputable  universities around the country, Diamond Bank is the largest employer of talent in the Nigerian banking industry. The bank boasts of a robust personnel engagement strategy that helps it to continually attract and retain the best talent in the industry. This is in fulfillment of its corporate vision of becoming a leading financial institution, with the best people, providing unequalled customer experience and delivering superior shareholder value.
