Scotiabank rewards employees


Share post:

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE and unwavering commitment to customers put 26 Scotiabank employees in the spotlight at the Best Of The Best annual staff awards ceremony recently.

They were recognised at a ceremony at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre at the end of a year in which Scotiabank itself was rewarded for its customer focus, having been adjudged Bank Of The Year 2015 in Barbados by The Banker magazine.

“These employees demonstrated their commitment to service, not only in their daily interaction with customers and colleagues, but also outside of the bank, volunteering their time to community outreach,” managing director for Scotiabank Caribbean East, David Noel, said of the awardees.

All of the top performers were rewarded for their dedication and sacrifice, but Carol-Ann Ifill, from the Haggatt Hall branch, was the toast of the awards. She took the inaugural English Caribbean Region (ECR) Top Sales Officer special award, winning US$1 000 and a seven-day Caribbean cruise for two aboard the Oasis Of The Seas. Ifill and a travel companion will be guests of Scotiabank senior vice-president Bruce Bowen.

Out of a field of over 400 regional sales officers, Ifill performed exceptionally and consitently and proved to be the star performer for the ECR. She also won another prize trip, along with Top Support Person, Samuel McField, and Top Small Business Officer, Alexis Morris.

The three, and one guest each, will next month go on an all-expenses paid round trip to Panama, where they will meet up with senior Scotiabank executives and other Best Of The Best winners.

The Managing Director’s Spirit Award went to the Black Rock team this year, for how they carried out their duties even as the branch transitioned to closure on June 12, 2015. Best Branch was Haggatt Hall and the award for Best Unit was earned by retail sales and service.

Nominees for Scotiabank’s Best Of The Best awards programmes are employees who contribute to the financial success of the bank by consistently exceeding expectations on results; actively look for ways to enhance the client experience; take an organised and efficient approacch to deliver high quality results, and look for opportunities to streamline processes and create efficiencies; and go the extra mile by giving time, energy and experience to develop themselves and help co-workers.
