UBA provides employment directly or indirectly to 12, 978 employees who fondly refer to themselves as 'UBA Lions and Lionesses'. The Bank's 'best-place-to-work initiative' has created a harmonious work environment through which young graduates have grown and transformed into accomplished and well motivated professionals.
Our employees are, without doubt, the strongest assets of the bank as they constitute the driving force of all the group's businesses and values. In fact, both customers and competitors alike, agree that there is something positively unique about the UBA individual.
Our people strategy starts from the point and method of recruitment, which emphasizes merit and a strong fit with our shared values, to the point of training and deployment, and retraining to imbibe the values and operating norms.
All of this combine with the highly competitive environment to transform ordinary graduates of different institutions in Nigeria and overseas, to accomplished and well-motivated professionals of the finest blend, with a burning desire for self-actualization.
To facilitate cultural integration, the group is emphasizing its “best place to work initiatives” to harmonize the workforce and enhance performance.
