Employees’ hard work pays off

19 September 2019 | Banking

The work of outstanding individuals and branches were rewarded as part of the annual Capricorn Group Awards that aims to recognise the achievements of employees of the group and its subsidiaries.
Showing that cross-departmental teamwork delivers results, the Bank Windhoek Deal of the Year Award was shared between the bank’s Corporate and Institutional Banking, Credit, Collateral and Compliance, Treasury, Marketing and Corporate Communication Services and Capricorn Private Wealth for the internationally recognised Bank Windhoek Green Bond.
The Bank Windhoek Retail Branch Awards consist of six categories with branches from around the country recognised for their achievements during the previous financial year. Bank Windhoek’s Outapi Branch scooped the Best Branch in New Current Account Growth Award, while Tsumeb and Rehoboth branches won the Best Branch in Funding Growth and Best Branch in Net Profit Growth respectively.
The Best Performing Specialist Finance Branch Award went to Property Finance, while the Retail Banking Services South team was awarded as the Best Performing Region. Walvis Bay won the coveted Retail Branch of the Year Award.
The event also included the Bank Windhoek Managing Director’s (MD) Awards where individuals and the best shared services department were honoured. International Banking Services won the award for best support services. Monique Venter from Enterprise Risk Management Department received the Service Excellence Award while Derek Sansom from Capricorn Private Wealth won the Bank Windhoek MD Award for Sales Excellence.
“I am exceptionally pleased with the performance of Bank Windhoek citizens,” said Bank Windhoek’s Managing Director, Baronice Hans. “To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace and therefore an awards evening like this, to give reward and recognition to those who excelled, is an important part of our organisational culture.”
Capricorn Group’s Lead: Core Banking, Chris Hoeseb, received the Capricorn Group CEO Award for Leadership while the IT Organisation department received the award for the best group function.
Capricorn Group’s CEO, Thinus Prinsloo congratulated the winners and said: “Two things really stood out for me this year – firstly, great people across the group, embraced the opportunity to step up, pull together and deliver an impactful result. Secondly, our diversification strategy is paying dividends – this year was exceptional in the sense that all the subsidiaries delivered very good results across the board, simultaneously lifting the performance of the Group to record highs”.
