NEM Insurance Plc has embarked on a fitness walk to create insurance awareness and develop its workers physically and mentally.
The workers, led by the Group Managing Director of the underwriting firm, Tope Smart and other executive directors, walked from the company’s head office on Ikorodu Road to Maryland, Lagos and back, distributing flyers and sensitising the public.
Smart, who spoke after the exercise, said the company aims to promote not only a professionally fit workforce but also a healthy and physically fit workforce.
He said the company believes that the walk will have an impact on its operations because a fit workforce will ensure the staff do their job without any stress.
He stated that the company also used the walk to promote and advance the image of the industry.
He added that the company is doing very well as they are moving to achieve our target for the year.
He said: “The fitness walk is an initiative that we came up with when we discovered that the stress surrounding Nigerians daily activities was very much. Also, apart from our marketers who go out, some other staff will sit from morning till evening.
“Although we have a gym in the office building and a few of them make use of it early in the morning before they begin work, many of the staff do not have the opportunity to do that. We have also been using the image of the company to promote the industry.
“NEM is doing very well as we are moving to achieve our target for this year. Our income is and bottom line are growing and we are excited”, he said.
