The Managing Director/CEO of Heritage Bank Plc, Ifie Sekibo has emphasised the importance of human capital development among workers of financial institutions.
Speaking during a three-day annual Internal Control and Audit Conference, organised by Heritage Bank in Lagos, he said training acquired personally and arranged by corporate organisations for individuals are useful not only to the person but key to the corporation growth.
He, however, advised workers participating in the conference to be rigorously committed in upholding integrity, as their job qualities define each person’s character.
Also, Sekibo stressed the need for members of staff to cultivate savings culture for their future, while noting that the fate of every worker of the institution is tied together by “this purpose called Heritage Bank.”
Some of the primary issues x-rayed at the annual conference were to ensure adherence to corporate governance across board, how to attain free fraud transactions, faster and seamless transactions, deepen synergy among Internal Control Unit (ICU), Audit & other units, to ensure workable & functional system, cost cutting, due diligence in the process of tickets, cohesion in the working processes among other key issues.
Earlier, Chief Audit Executive of the bank, Prince Akamadu, said the conference was where officers of the bank responsible for internal control and audit across the country gather yearly to review their activities.
