Stanbic Bank engages staff in ‘hearty’ walk
Stanbic Bank Ghana, as parts of efforts to promote a happier, healthier and collaborative workforce organized a health walk for their staff on Saturday March 04, 2023. Held under the theme ‘Ties That Bind,’ hundreds of enthusiastic staff across the city showed up to participate in the 2-hour hearty walk.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Mawuko Afadzinu, Head of Marketing at Stanbic Bank, encouraged staff to work towards a healthy lifestyle by making exercise a priority in order to live a fulfilled life.
He said, “At Stanbic Bank we strive to give our wonderful customers the best banking experience whenever they walk through our doors. But we cannot deliver on our brand promise if we as a group do not work together or are not in good health. That is why we have gathered here today as one big ‘Blue’ family to walk together and engage in different exciting team building activities.”
He added, “As workers, most of us have sedentary lifestyles which is attributable to the number of hours we spend in the office daily. We need to be mindful of our lifestyles and prevent ill health through reasonable exercises’’.
Mr. Afadzinu went on to commend the staff of the bank for their commitment to work and their role in the success of the company.
He said, “We are only three months into 2023 but we have already received a number of awards including our recognition as the customer service leader in the Ghanaian banking sector at the 5th Customer Service Index (CSI). These achievements would not be possible without the hard work of our loyal staff. Thank you all for your efforts and I know this year will be filled with many more successes.”
The 8.6km walk began from Stanbic Heights, the Headquarters of Stanbic Bank Ghana at Airport, to Lands commission through to the Ghana Police Headquarters and back to Stanbic Heights, under the guidance and instructions of The New You team. The bank employees gathered for an intense aerobics session and other team bonding exercises at the forecourt of Stanbic Heights, after which they had their bodies checked by chiropractors from Solace Medical Centre and Patholab
