AFTER a traumatic experience two weeks ago, staff of Bank of South Pacific Samabula branch returned to work in high spirits yesterday.
The branch was the victim of a daring daylight robbery heist last month where a gang smashed their way into the walls of the bank at the corner of Ratu Mara Rd and Rewa St in a stolen vehicle.
In a statement, BSP country manager Kevin McCarthy said staff had received counselling to help prepare for their return to work.
"We are a resilient team and we all remain committed to providing high quality banking services in all our locations throughout the Pacific in the face of challenges," he said.
Branch manager Mere Vuinakelo said they had a team bonding and reflection exercise last week during training.
"Towards the later part of the week, all the staff were itching to get back to doing what we do best — serving our customers face-to-face. I am very proud of my staff," she said. The branch, which employs 20 staff, was closed temporarily for urgent repair works.
