Human Development

Cultivating human talent is one of our top priorities at Bank Audi. Being one of the largest private sector employers in Lebanon, we value the importance of nurturing human talent in all its guises, whether inside the Bank by investing in our own employees, or outside it by investing in the development of external nation-wide human talent.
We continue to be involved, spread the word, and share best practices on CSR through our involvement with various efforts and key activities across Lebanon.

For the third year running, the CSR Unit held an interactive university awareness session aiming to encourage students to be creative and propose a feasible CSR project aligned with the Bank’s CSR strategy. This year, the session focused on Anti-corruption, a material issue in our Corporate Governance pillar and one of the UN Global Compact’s ten principles. Nine students suggested impressive and inspiring ideas of which only three proposals were shortlisted by an external CSR jury composed of five prominent members. During the second phase, the three finalists presented their proposals to our CSR Committee who chose the winners following live presentations. The winners, who won financial prizes for their efforts are:
