Innovation and UBA: Working at Africa’s Global Bank
To keep up with our excellent standard of operations, innovation is key in our talent management. UBA boasts of some of the world’s highly trained, disciplined and brilliant professionals. However, in order to maintain this standard, it is important to set ‘think big’ goals that require creativity and innovation from every individual. With a clear understanding that creativity cannot be forced, the right setting puts the team in the best frame of mind to be imaginative and innovative in their thinking. And this is what we provide at UBA –the right environment for innovation.
The Melting Pot - Our Cafeteria
Cafeteria and creativity have more than the ‘C’ in common, and while this may sound funny, it is one of the most important elements of talent management; no one thinks with a clear head when the stomach is empty. UBA’s The Melting Pot Café is set up in such away that it not only fills your belly with an assorted range of healthy food options, it also creates an environment that encourages collaboration and bonding, refreshes perspective, awakens creativity and renews energy.
The Workplace Gym
A workplace gym translates into healthy, energized and confident employees, who become more creative, innovative and effective in their output. The gym provides an outlet to relax the mind and body for employees to regain a sense of control, and an avenue for team building and bonding.
Employee Management System
By employing a proper talent management system, UBA tracks the processes of employee engagements and performances on a regular basis. A committed appraisal and record keeping of employee performance creates a better work environment for employees to thrive and contribute remarkably. It fosters accountability, eliminates bias and rewards goal-oriented performances.
Hot Desking Area
UBA’s Hot Desking initiative encourages fluidity, giving staff a chance to pick up their workload from wherever they please, and providing access to all the same tools and facilities they need to be innovative and productive. It also makes collaboration a far more natural process while improving professional relationships.
Beyond the wide range of trainings offered in the UBA Academy, there is also the availability of trainings to just about everyone, irrespective of position and career level. This affords our employees a chance to attain expertise no matter their level, and prepares them to take on bigger responsibilities as they arise in the workplace.
Diversity in the workplace
At UBA, we take advantage of the diversity of our workforce to further foster innovation. An assembly of people with different personal and professional experiences, expertise and viewpoints help inspire creative and unconventional solutions to challenges. We believe that no matter where you come from, your diversity is an asset to building a more innovative business structure.
Driving Innovation through Technology
Taking advantage of new and improved technology helps strengthen the effectiveness of our team. As the world is continually turning global, UBA keeps up with the changes by implementing and encouraging the use of technology to create best practices among our workers.
The flexibility telecommuting offers allows our employees work from wherever they are in the world, at their most convenient pace while still delivering on their targets in good time. It also helps scheduling, collaboration, improved communication and career development through eLearning platforms.
