Everyone at Wema Bank either directly serves our customers, or works in partnership to support those that do. Our employees are accountable for fulfilling the responsibilities of their job positions and striving for the highest level of performance. This is especially important in respect of decisions that affect our customers.
We encourage our staff to split their time and energy suitably to ensure they are successful in the different areas of their lives. Work-life balance is expressed in initiatives such as our flexible working arrangements, remote work financing, leave policies, etc. These are some of the measures we have put in place to ensure employees have a greater sense of comfort and balance in their personal lives, and are equally as productive in the workplace.
In order to improve team bonding and internal collaboration, the bank has continued to invest in our annual sports and games tournament ‘’Wemalympics’’. This initiative contributes to our employees’ physical fitness, mental well-being and social interactions while fostering the development of other essential skills such as teamwork, tolerance, courage, resilience, and innovation.
To maximize our employees’ effectiveness and productivity while giving more flexibility, Wema Bank is committed to Remote and Flexi working.
Our Remote Policy enables employees to work remotely from a home office or shared workspace within a branch or recognized co-working location.
At Wema Bank, we believe in professionalism as one of the core values that hold us together. To this end, we constantly aim at comfortable yet professional corporate wear for our staff for three working days of the week (Monday - Wednesday). Thursdays are set apart for staff to promote the brand identity by wearing the Bank’s branded wears, while on Fridays, we also promote a culture of fun and friendliness by our corporate-casual dress-code for that day.
Customer Service Week
Every year, we observe the global Customer Service Week, which is an international celebration of the importance of customer service and of the people who serve and support customers on a daily basis.
