Lagos — First City Monument Bank Plc (FCMB) said it has concluded training for 20 of the 2012 batch of employees, recruited for its Graduate Development Programme (GDP) and Management Development Programme (MDP).

The programme under GDP comprises a class of 10 of fresh graduates with good educational background but with no work experience while the MDP class of 2012 is a class of 10 with about three years work experience before joining the program.

The bank in a statement said the programs are aimed at recruiting intelligent graduates and giving them the training and experience they needed to become useful.

FCMB's divisional head, human resources and change management, Ms Felicia Obozuwa said the program would assist the bank in building up highly efficient and resourceful leadership pipeline that will ensure the future of FCMB.

Speaking during the first series of the inspirational and motivational sessions organized for the GDP and MDP classes, as well as the leadership of the bank, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, former World Bank vice-President enjoined participants to strive to embrace excellence in order to build an enduring institution.

She stressed that only institutions with a culture of excellence and integrity would stand the test of time.
