noted that UBA was the only financial institution that did not stop or freeze
payment of salary during the civil war.
The commendation, among others, were conveyed to the
Group Managing Director, Mr. Phillips Oduoza during a town
hall meeting held in Abidjan, the capital of Cote d’Ivoire on Tuesday, October
22, 2013.
The ‘unusual’ support, the staff emphasized, is a clear demonstration
that management values staff welfare above all. To show their appreciation,
they vowed to work very hard for the success of the subsidiary and the group.
The UBA GMD expressed his appreciation for the dedication of
staff, noting that the bank’s staff remains its most valuable resource. He said
plans are in place to ensure that staff are not materially affected by domestic
crisis in any of the 19 African countries the Group operates.


He called on staff to double their effort to ensure UBA Cote
d’Ivoire achieves exceptional performance. “You have the potential to rival the
best in the Group. I believe with your efforts and support from management,
your performance will be impressive and contribute significantly to our future profitability” the GMD said.
