Veteran HR Practitioner and BSP’s outgoing General Manager Human Resource, Giau Duruba was made Honorary Fellow for his distinguished services to the PNG Institute of Banking & Business Management (PNG IBBM) during its 62nd graduation.
Mr Duruba has been with the bank for over 11 years and has been a passionate advocate of staff development and promoter of the capabilities of our Papua New Guinean staff.
This prestigious event also saw 55 BSP Staff graduate from various courses, with the majority successfully awarded Certificate IV in Frontline Management– an Australian accredited qualification in collaboration with Learning Potential International Pty Ltd (LPI).
Group General Manager – Retail Bank, Paul Thornton said, BSP regards skilled and motivated staff as key to addressing today’s banking challenges. The rapid pace of change in the financial industry and the increasing complexity of the industry, require staff to be exposed to international markets and training programs to upskill and empower them in their roles and career progression.
“Our investment in Human Resource Development is an ongoing program with BSP’s Graduate Development program (GDP) for new graduates, the Leadership Development Program (LDP) where we identify emerging leaders and build their capabilities, and our ongoing on-the-job skills development program,” he said.
“With IBBM, our team leaders are equipped with general supervisory skills and knowledge as part of their on-the-job development. They are also able to specifically focus on work based projects on improving services, processes and communication,” added Mr Thornton.
IBBM is the longest established private sector training organisation in PNG and is recognised as the Nation’s most prestigious provider of pragmatic, cost-effective training in administrative, finance, banking, commerce, supervisory and management skills since 1965.
