With this in mind, they organise weekly meetings with a pre-set agenda, prepared in advance by the head of the Banking Department, to ensure all attendees know the matters to be discussed before the meeting. The team studies them before the meeting and they are then presented and discussed during the meeting. They dedicate one week of the month to the individual presentation of a subject of current interest for the department.
The work of each of the members of the department is closely monitored in these meetings to know the volume of cases they are dealing with to control the equitable distribution thereof.
The purpose is to ensure an excellent and constant level of training and organisation in the benefit of the client.
