Recognizing the efforts and rewarding the results of BNF Bank employees is a significant part of BNF’s culture. From the way it supports its employees’ development and career goals, to the culture and conduct practices established across the Bank, BNF believes that a key focus of recognition is to make employees feel appreciated and valued.
With no exception in 2020 amidst the number of challenges, employees to the various posts in the bank were awarded during a BNF virtual ceremony, based on the evaluation of performance, nominations by peers and endorsement by management. The virtual ceremony concluded yet another year of achievements and transmitted some of that good cheer and positive vibe that transpires during the BNF annual gathering year after year.

During the year, we took concerted efforts to encourage a culture of excellence towards customer service, compliance towards highest standards, and innovation at the workplace across various levels” said Michael Collis, CEO and Managing Director at BNF Bank. “We recognise, reward and take pride in our exemplary employees who set new benchmarks and relentlessly strive to provide exceptional customer service, demonstrate integrity and commitment, and win as a team”.
