Sterling Bank’s digital banking platform, OneBank, has announced that it will be eulogizing 250 Nigerian workers every week as part of its ‘One Professional’ initiative.
The One Professional initiative, according to the bank, aims to recognize Nigerian workers in various professions for their tenacity and contribution to nation-building.
In a recent statement, Sterling Bank’s Group Head of Digital Banking, Oladipo Alabede, stated that Nigerian workers deserve to be praised for their tenacity and contributions to nation-building.
“No nation can boast of tremendous progress or enjoy significant growth without a diligent, empowered and excited workforce. Over the years, Nigerian professionals have made giant strides across various industries like medicine, engineering and law, to mention but a few,” he stated.
The One Professional initiative by OneBank is Sterling’s way of amplifying the stories of Nigerian workers and thanking them. In his view, the initiative will give Nigerian workers plenty of opportunities to share their stories about how they ended up in their chosen fields.
“These stories will help inspire younger generations to make even better decisions while learning from mistakes made and lessons shared by these astute professionals,” Alabeda said.
He also stated that every month throughout the year, Nigerian professionals will be allowed to share inspirational stories about how they got started in their various fields of endeavour.
He went on to say that Nigerian workers can win cash prizes from OneBank if they download the OneBank app from the Google and Play stores and open an account.
He explained that the initiative’s mechanics require a worker who is a potential customer of the bank to open a OneBank account, select a sector/profession as part of the account opening requirement, and complete the account opening process.
