The Private Banking unit of Universal Merchant Bank (UMB), also known as the Prominence Club, has organized its first seminar of 2016 on the topic, “Re-Thinking Performance”.
The symposium which was conducted in partnership with IBS Consulting Alliance, is part of UMB’s quarterly seminar series aimed at discussing relevant topics that will enhance the businesses and investments of members of the Prominence Club.
The presentation on “Re-thinking Performance” was delivered by Mr. Percy Yankey and Mr. Chris Essilfie of IBS Consulting Alliance, who encouraged participants and business leaders to see performance as a cultural orientation which ensures that employees develop a behaviourial disposition towards achieving measurable business results.
The Chief Executive Officer of UMB, Mr. John Awuah in his welcome address, also stressed on UMB’s distinct focus on being a bank that thinks globally, acts locally and always puts the needs of its clients first.
Mr. Awuah further stated that UMB is always committed to the success of its customers and that the symposium was indicative of a relationship which transcends that of banker and client.
Commenting on the topic of the seminar, the Head of Private Banking at UMB, Elizabeth Naami Grant, stated that the working world has changed – and traditional notions of performance management are no longer sufficient for maintaining and assessing a productive workforce.
“That is why we have partnered with a respected consulting firm to equip our customers with ideas and tools that promulgate new ways and models of thinking about business success”, she added.
At the end of the event, participants expressed their appreciation to UMB for the relevant and engaging session.
