MANAMA, BAHRAIN – 29 September 2016 – Employees at Ithmaar Bank, a Bahrain-based Islamic retail bank, were treated to ice cream as part a bank-wide employee appreciation initiative.
The initiative by the Ithmaar Bank Social Committee aimed at putting a mid-week smile on employees – and was particularly well received across the Bank.
“We can’t buy employees the smiles they deserve, so we decided to get them the next best thing – ice cream,” said Head of Ithmaar Bank Human Resources, Enas Rahimi. “The idea was to surprise employees with something we know everyone loves,” she said.
“It is a small, simple gesture to remind all our employees that we care,” said Rahimi. “We often stress that our employees are our greatest asset, but this a high-level statement that can sometimes be forgotten. Simple reminders like these can go a long way in reminding employees how valuable they are,” she said.
Rahimi thanked the Ithmaar Bank management for supporting the initiative, and the Bank’s Social Committee for arranging it.
