‘An Even Better Place to Work’ sessions help participants increase company profit margins and create prosperous and productive working environment
November 7, 2012
The Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies (EIBFS), the sole provider of specialized knowledge and enhanced learning experiences for the UAE banking and financial sector, and Teamworking International Ltd., the market leaders in corporate training, revealed the successful hosting of ‘An Even Better Place to Work,’ a unique employee engagement and performance improvement workshop, held recently at the EIBFS Campus in Abu Dhabi. The event was highlighted by lively and strategic conversations that taught participants on how to collaborate effectively and help drive up company profit margins while at the same time create a prosperous and highly productive working environment.
‘An Even Better Place to Work’ is the culmination of over 20 years of work in organizations on leadership, culture and engagement issues–sharing best practices and productive initiatives from leading experts. The workshops featured key interactive sessions and discussions that were led and moderated by Tom Flatau, renowned executive coach and speaker from Teamworking International. During the sessions, participants learned how to measure current staff engagement levels and the tools needed to make significant changes; achieve higher ownership levels; reduce levels of people problems; create greater trust and openness between colleagues; develop savings in time, staff absenteeism and people turnover; achieve less financial waste on dysfunctional conflict and how to develop a more effective and productive workforce.
“Even in the light of the impact made by the recent economic gridlock, businesses in the Middle East have positioned themselves well on the path to recovery. The workshop sessions we hosted with Teamworking International aimed at giving companies and organizations a one-step advantage from their competition—teaching them on how to increase their profit margins and also on how to create a working environment that increases productivity and improves efficiencies. The high number of participants and the positive responses we received have given us the inspiration to connect closely with the local business segment and live up to our commitment of providing them with more specialized trainings and workshops,” concluded Jamal Al Jasmi, Director General, EIBFS.
