During such Town Hall meetings, Bank Nizwa staff and key executives or representatives interact closely. Through these gatherings, the bank believes that the trust and morale of employees are enhanced, transparency is promoted, a collective sense of purpose is created and momentum is built toward achieving strategic goals. Involving employees in discussions boosts motivation and creates a more cohesive body of work when they feel they have been consulted in decisions that affect them personally as well as the organization. It is a very good platform to engage, update, and receive employee feedback unfiltered. Additionally, it can be an effective tool for promoting culture and values within an organization.
