Our Corporate Social Investment (CSI)- Giving Back To The Community

Our slogan – 'The other side of banking'
We believe in continued commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large. We respect cultural differences and find the business opportunities in building the skills of employees and the community.

Our Policy
We support employees who wish to do volunteer work within the community or for charitable institutions. This helps us to build relationships with the local community and improve how it is perceived within it.
Given the potential for well-chosen Corporate Social Investment initiatives to bring the bank closer to its market and understanding local needs, we recognize that flexibility to local aspirations is key to maximising the business benefit from social investments. We will ensure that our Corporate Social Investment activities are aligned with development planning and will identify opportunities to work with local economic development programmes.


Our approach:
To identify programmes that are related to what we do and add value to the communities in which we operate and exist.
To create new understanding in our communities and hence change in attitude and behaviour and improve the quality of
life.
Identify partners both in the business fraternity and NGOs with whom we can share our vision and our activities in
improving the society's well being.
Achieve critical mass and be recognized as an influential player in the development of an empowered society.
Monitor and evaluate the results and impact of the programmes we support
