Staff of HNB commenced the first working day of 2017 on a spiritual note. A religious observance followed by New Year traditions was the Bank’s way of setting forth year 2017. Religious blessings in the Bhuddist, Hindu, Christian and Muslim faiths were observed by employees under the auspices of their Managing Director and Chief Executive Jonathan Alles. In his New Year address to the team, Alles opened his address by conveying his wishes to all present. “It is my heartfelt hope that all of you enjoy a New Year filled with peace, love, joy, happiness, good health and success,” he remarked. While thanking them for exemplary performance, Alles outlined his vision for the bank for the next five years. Religious observances were held at the Head Office and all of HNB’s branches island-wide, with the active participation of the bank’s corporate management.
