Speaking at the presentation of the award to Alison Rose, RBS CEO earlier today, Simon Thompson, Chief Executive of the Chartered Banker Institute commented:
“The award of Corporate Chartered status to RBS recognises the major, sustained and ongoing commitment from the bank, and by colleagues across the organisation, to investing in the training and enhanced professionalism of colleagues. Colleagues throughout RBS, from their Chief Executive Officer to Customer Service Officers are enthusiastic advocates for socially-purposeful, ethically professional and customer-focused banking, closely aligned to the mission of the Chartered Banker Institute. We are delighted to be able to encourage and support RBS’ ambition of becoming the most professional bank.”
Alison Rose, CEO, RBS, added:
“I am proud that we are the first bank to receive such an important acknowledgement of our commitment to the professional development of our workforce.
Our partnership with the Institute, along with the hard work and commitment of our colleagues, means we now have 13,000 professionally qualified bankers across our organisation.
We are focused on providing opportunities for all of our people to develop their skills and knowledge and I’m delighted to see the CBI continuing to innovate in this space with the introduction of the Green Finance Certificate and the Advanced Diploma in Banking and Leadership in a Digital Age”.
