Executive Officer of Human Capital and Citizenship, Stephanie Viljoen, introduced the new employees to the EMT members which included Capricorn Group’s Managing Director, Thinus Prinsloo, Bank Windhoek’s Managing Director, Baronice Hans and executives from various departments such as, Retail Banking Services, Finance and Marketing and Corporate Communication Services.

“I hope you will enjoy your two-day New Employee Orientation Programme where you will get to know Bank Windhoek’s culture in terms of how we operate as a friendly, welcoming and fully Namibian bank,” said Viljoen.

Prinsloo explained the core functions and structures of Capricorn Group. “Our biggest investment is you, the people in the organisation,” said Prinsloo.

Baronice Hans emphasised the importance of customer satisfaction and urged employees to always put the customer first. “In terms of Corporate Social Investment, we want to make sure that Namibia is a better country because Bank Windhoek is here,” said Hans.

“The orientation programme is aimed at welcoming new employees into the organisation and prepares them for their new role. The process also covers the employer and employee rights and the terms and conditions of employment,” said Bank Windhoek’s Manager of People Development, Fillimon Ngairo.
