With more global organisations continuing to focus on building a strong and positive workplace culture, Baiduri Bank Group has taken the lead by holding its very first Leadership Forum at the Baiduri Community Space, Baiduri Bank Headquarters on Friday, 22 July 2022.

The one-day forum gathered the Bank Group’s senior management team and people managers in one place with the aim of fostering good leadership, building a stronger working culture as well as enhancing their overall understanding of the Group core values and why these values are crucial in fostering a productive and engaged workforce. The forum also acted as a platform to facilitate dialogues between the senior managers and other leaders within the Group to share experiences in managing their own teams.

The highlight of the forum involved four panel discussions with the Bank Group’s management team and other leaders that focused on its core values of Trustworthy, Inclusivity, Empathy and Enterprising, and brought forward questions that looked at these values and how leaders can influence and embed these values within their teams. The forum concluded with informal breakout sessions that looked at how these values can be applied in the workplace.

Veronica Chong, Head of Group Human Resources and Administration who was on the panel that discussed the topic of ‘Empathy’ said that the Leadership Forum was a valuable opportunity to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience of senior leaders in the Bank Group, and so they could play an active role in embedding these core values as the strong foundation in their workforce.

She said: “This forum was a valuable opportunity for our senior leadership team to be very hands on and interactive with the discussions, and facilitate informal discussions relating to our core values. This forum allowed people managers to be transparent with the challenges they face in their day-to-day interactions and be empowered to be more effective leaders though the unique peer-to-peer learning experience.”

Meanwhile, Manuel Bulens, Deputy CEO of Compliance, Corporate Governance and Legal Support, who was on the panel that discussed the topic of ‘Enterprising’, mentioned about how in the future, the Leadership Forum will be an annual event to gather leaders and managers across Baiduri Bank Group with the main goal of enhancing their people management capabilities through relevant themes.

In his opening remarks he said: “We are seeing more organisations around the world focusing on building a strong work culture, because they are fully aware that a company’s work culture directly affects productivity, retention and even customer service.

“With that in mind, we’ve planned other initiatives to enhance our overall culture, skills and capability to achieve organizational success. This forum is a great opportunity for our senior management as well as other leaders and team managers to share their views on our core values and how they relate to leadership.”
