DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
People at BLOM BANK are treated with the utmost respect in a culture that strives on fairness, ethics and transparency. BLOM BANK prohibits discrimination of any type and offers equal opportunities to all its employees without regard to sex, religion, ethnic background, age or disability.
BLOM BANK is aware of the significance of investing in its employees and keeping them motivated. In addition to investing in their training and education, the Bank ensures employees’ access to a variety of benefits and facilities such as special interest rates, medical coverage, guaranteed eligibility for preferred medical coverage upon retirement, profit sharing, special allowances…
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES ENGAGEMENT
BLOM BANK, being a large institution with over 2,000 employees in Lebanon alone and focusing on the well-being of its employees, encourages them to participate in various social activities organized by the bank such as: BLOM Basketball Team (Males), BLOM Basketball Team (Females), BLOM Football Team, BLOM Running Team and BLOM Band – the bank’s musical talents unite to create oriental and acoustic melodies, noting that this band volunteers to perform entertainments for several NGOs.
These activities give also employees the opportunity to mingle after working hours creating thus a better teamwork spirit at work.
SAFETY AND SECURITY FIRST
All within its motto of bringing safety and security to stakeholders, at both external and internal levels, the management has developed a Hotline program which aims at strengthening the fraud policy and the code of conduct. The purpose of the Hotline is to ensure that every employee should be able to report his/her concerns (violations, fraud, abuse, discrimination, harassment…) to an independent authority from his immediate supervisor. The main objectives of the Hotline are:
- Demonstrate management’s zero tolerance attitude
- Identify and resolve issues early
- Reduce liability and demonstrate due diligence
- Provide a risk-free way to voice concerns
On another level, it is the Bank’s duty to keep raising its employees’ awareness on security threats. It thus launched Information Security Awareness Campaigns to address and prevent security threats and pro-actively monitor systems’ activity by implementing advanced preventive and detective controls.
