Manage lifecycle of an employee from end to end.Upskilling different Human Resources Business Partners on the self service portal (ESS)Keeping track of all the queries via team track.Capture and process transactional documents.

We had to work, and have fun at the workplace at the same time. that motivated the staff to perform to their utmost. every employee very focused because it was a fraud department , dealing with peoples money. that taught me to focus more and always e vigilant. best part of the job was calling the client to tell them that you managed to save their money and get it back into their accounts

Working at Standard Bank has grown me as an individual. Dealing with Executives who have certain standards of doing things and learning how to deal with them has grown me an individual. A fast-paced environment where change constantly takes place and you have to adapt fast. A typical day at work is never the same as each day presents a different challenge. But ultimately, i am passionate about what i do and i love the energy and challenges that came my way.

Working at Standard Bank is not a problem but their salary and your duties are very much different and the contract am having is more like a part time job since I work upto 5 hours a day and it minimizes my salary

It's not a bad company, I would work there again. The benefits are good even the salary is not bad at all. Just the management I had wouldn't reward us or make us feel valued. But apart the company itself in terms of benefits the best.

The emphasis was on service delivery and teamwork. The position I held, as Service Head, carried a lot of responsibility but I enjoyed every moment. The majority of my day was spent interfacing with customers to ensure excellent service delivery. I ran weekly sessions with the entire branch staff to motivate and educate them on banking matters.
