Standard Lesotho Bank (SLB) hosted a career clinic for its staff on Friday in an effort to help rejuvenate their careers.

Institutions that were invited to participate at the career clinic are: Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT), Institute of Development Management (IDM), School Of Continuing Education (S.O.C.E) and the Institute of Extra Mural Studies (IEMS).

These were invited to share about available programmes for banking personnel to pursue to advance their careers in the new era of technology and to update on new developing courses to explore.

SLB Head of People and Culture Bataung Mosesi said as the bank evolves, they believe their employees are critical assets that will assist them to meet all their milestones. Mosesi mentioned that they also extended their invites to institutions out of the country in a bid to conduct the best career clinics suitable for their staff, and with the goal of delivering the best services in the market.

For his part, SLB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anton Nicolaisen said as the Bank in Lesotho, it is important for them to make a difference, saying the main objective of the career clinic is for their staff to build local capabilities and improve local services. “Building our staff also contributes to the country’s development,” he highlighted.

Nicolaisen also added; “It is also an exercise for employees to further and improve themselves through acquiring new skills. If we capacitate our staff, ultimately our customers will benefit,” said Nicolaisen.

The CEO further stated that the career clinic presents a perfect opportunity for employees to learn and improve their working careers because the more skills they have to offer an employer, the more responsibility they will receive.

S.O.C.E Dean ‘Mapitso Masakale mentioned that their institution offers part-time courses for professional development. Masakale said their courses are unique and run for a maximum duration of one year.

“An employee may know computer from university but may also need to learn advanced computer skills to fit into a workplace, that’s where S.O.C.E comes in,” said Masakale.
