Balancing work and personal life.

I feel sometimes it becomes so stressful to a point where you forget about you and you only live as an employee of SBSA, not as an individual. I love the people, they teach young people like us to always strive for success, don't settle, get what you want.

Productivity

A typical day will start by around 8 interacting with clients existing and new.process applications and actioning of reports. Customer service is important to retain clients and bring in new business to sustain the business. Not doing enough to encourage staff to enjoy their roles and opportunities for growth are not sufficient. Hardest part is working hours and leave day given at management discretion. The team is so dedicated and understanding and supportive, feel like extended family

Pros

Teambuilding outside boarders

Cons

Not enough support structures and feeling of ubuntu

Performance and service driven entity

Great portion of day exists of monitoring work / service delivery and quality. Compliance make out a great portion of this business and the hardest part is to ensure that every one are pulling together to achieve the mission statement. Many decisions have to be taken on your feet and it is satisfying when targets are not only achieved, but exceeded. Many incentives available to staff for approving and streamlining systems and procedures to improve service, workflow, reduce risk and improve productivity. Most satisfying part of job is when you are able to share your knowledge and skills to up-skill subordinates and see them grow and get promoted.

Pros

Willingness to improve and simplify systems and procedures recommended by staff

Cons

Regular restructuring initiatives leads to job redundancy

Great Team Work and Good Selling Techniques

We always devided our branch into two groups depending on how many Consultants we were. We would start off in the mornings with budgets for the day. We would have competitions with each others teams to see who sold the most products for the day. We would then at the end off the month announce the best seller to the branch and he will be then rewarded with with True Blue points which is an internal awards system so you can use your points to purchase anything online. I have learned alot about selling techniques from my direct line managers. My co-workers was more like a family whithin the bank. We always worked together as a team. When one person is feeling down the other co-workers will help to cheer the other person up. The hardest part of the job was because of the economical presure that we found ourselves in, is that you realy have to keep yourself up to date with new ways off selling. Because of things changing so rapidly the banks also have to change their products. Every month things was changing within the Bank to suit today's people better. The most enjoyable part of the job was team work and your co-workers. The other enjoyable moments are when you see how far you have worked as a team and be recognised for your support to the company. Also at the end of the year the feeling of accomplishment to your targets and delivering to your share holders make you feel great.

Pros

Working hours is great

Cons

Saturdays are also a working day

Team work and motivation to improve yourself was always tops

I love the management skills giving you the employee the power, cause you where treaded like an adult that don't need to be look after as you knew what to do. Teamwork was top of the list because we knew that we need to help one other so we all can benefit at the end of the day. You were always encourage to improve yourself. The thing I loved about my job was that I was in control of my work and I could manage myself.

Pros

Top Training and development

Cons

Not retaining there trained and skilled employees
