Muscat, Oman, United Arab Emirates, 2008/06/30 - In a move to benefit its employees and customers at large, Ahli Bank-Oman recently held a week long management training program.
The training workshops were attended by 18 sales personnel from Ahli Bank branches.
Comprising three modules over a daily four–hour session, the workshop helped participants to acquire knowledge on managing a sales team, designing a marketing plan, and carrying out successful sales campaigns.
Commenting on the benefits of the marketing and sales training, Mr. Said Al Hamadani, Head of Human Resources of Ahli Bank Oman, said, “At Ahli Bank Oman, personal growth means creating a workplace where everyone can give in his or her best work. This training workshop, aimed at developing the sales team, is crucial in today’s competitive world. As part of our HR training policy, we assess these individual needs and address them by way of requisite workshops and training programs to improve their effectiveness.”
The training program’s module on Sales training equipped branch managers and other sales personnel to create a mutually defined sales culture to enable their salespeople achieve their full selling potential and build a confident, competitive sales team.
