State-owned Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) has tapped Moody’s Analytics for the implementation of its eLearning training and simulation program for its officers and employees.
“The first of its kind for the bank, DBP’s eLearning program will be an alternative channel of training delivery and talent development, as well as a convenient, accessible and cost-effective mode of training, for DBP officers and employees in the head office and branch network,” the bank said in a statement.
It added that Moody’s Analytics Commercial Lending eLearning curriculum is designed to ensure that DBP account officers will have a better understanding of the financial needs and risk profiles of their clients, besides enhancing the bank’s overall risk management infrastructure.
“It is a great privilege for us to partner with such a venerable policy bank in helping to raise competency levels across the organization,” Ari Lehavi, head of Moody’s Analytics’ Training and Certification Division, said in a separate statement.
Lehavi also commended DBP for its commitment to foster a culture of risk awareness and competence, adding that the bank is in line with best practices among leading institutions worldwide.
