When your passion is the key inspiration to your profession, time may not matter.
Margaret Tubavi recently celebrated her 40th anniversary with Bank South Pacific. She started as a Bank Clerk on the 27th of February 1978.
When asked, Margret said, "Mathematics was my favourite subject in school. I enjoyed working with figures and was pleased when I started with the bank, PNGBC at that time."
"When you work with the bank, you have the pleasure of working with people, sometimes, it's not good, other times; it can be a good experience. Being thankful about my job and doing what I enjoy has kept me with the bank all this year's even made me forget the years I have spent. It's been 40 years, can't believe it, but I am thankful
When asked on one of her most memorable moment with the bank, Margaret told about her experience when she was the relieving manager in Finchafen, "I remember clearly in 1997, three (3) months before I moved in to Finchafen, an outstanding of K400, 000 was reported missing at the branch,I was able to locate these funds within two weeks when I was there. I was pleased of the work that I did."
I commend BSP and the Management for being an employer of choice. BSP takes care of its employees. The award is a milestone and a great reward for me and my family.
The bank has invested in training and development. I have grown in my skills. Some of these skills that I have attained will benefit me and my family when I leave the bank.
