This “Contribution to the organisation” Award recognises Riyad Bank’s for its contribution to developing its People & Leadership Teams. 

Riyad Bank was established in 1957 as the Kingdom’s first Saudi joint stock banking company. It has 234 branches in addition to ladies banking sections with an employee number in access of 4919. The Bank enjoys an international presence through its London Branch, Houston agency and Singapore Representative Office in addition to its global correspondent banking relationships. 

Riyad Bank has further developed its integrated people development process using a world class Behavioural Competency Framework. Embedding this across the business allows the bank and senior executive teams to; manage teams and develop internal succession planning that provides employees a ‘clear line of site” for their next role & supports the management of retention and expectations of talent. It supports the recruitment process in identifying and selecting the right people to join the bank and thereby supports the raising of the “bar” in people performance. 

The Asia HRD Congress 2010 International Awards Committee is delighted to honour Riyad Bank for contribution to human capital development in organisation.
