Zulu recalled that the financial institution had been through tough situations before which it overcame.

He said this at the signing of the collective agreement with Zambia Union of Financial Institutions and Allied Workers (ZUFIAW) on Tuesday.

“This year is promising to be another challenging year but we have been through this in the past.

“In the same way that we successfully navigated through all the challenges in the past, I am confident that we will navigate through this year and we will come out strong as well as we remain the best customer service and digital bank in Zambia,” Zulu said.

On the salary increase, he argued that the increment did not only acknowledge the hard work of employees but was also a statement to fair, as well as, equitable compensation practices.

“By providing our employees with a competitive and rewarding remuneration package, we aim not only attract and retain top talent but also to ensure their continued motivation and engagement in driving our business forward, he said.

At the same event, ZUFIAW Lusaka District Chairperson, Victor Silungwe, encouraged the bank to ensure that the housing allowance was reflective of market prices.

Silungwe, however, acknowledged that the increase would go a long way in helping the workers meet their daily needs.
