Albaraka microfinance among The Best Employers in Morocco in 2015  

Albaraka, a leading Institution in the microfinance sector in Morocco, has been awarded the Fourth Prize at the Morocco’s 2015 Best Employers Award Ceremony in the Large Companies Category.

The Institution has been distinguished, on its participation for the first time, by receiving this prestigious recognition thanks to its transparent and efficient human resources management policy.

By receiving this award, Albaraka has also demonstrated its capacity to offer its staff members (more than 1400 employees in its network of 208 branches), a working environment that fosters commitment, responsibility, ethics, transparency and professional effectiveness.

Albaraka has succeeded to stand out in the eight areas assessed and largely exceeded the average standards established. The Institution enjoys excellent management leadership, follows good practices in human resources management, and proposes appropriate wages and social benefits. The sense of belonging and the image it wishes to convey have thus contributed to create a positive working environment. In addition, the continuous quest for quality and excellence is consistent with the Institution’s social mission, which aims to promote financial and social inclusion of micro-entrepreneurs and very small enterprises.

The « Best Employers in Morocco » programme has been launched jointly by the US Best Companies Group and the consulting firm, Lycom, under the aegis of the Ministry of Employment and Social Affairs. The programme is well known in more than a hundred countries throughout the world, and aims to identify and highlight employers who stand out thanks to their working environment and practices in human capital management.
