The Bank has partnered with Thibaa Psychology, Society for Health Education (SHE) and Institute of Mental Well-being (IMWB) to offer regular consultations and counselling programs for its staff.
As part of the program, the Bank will cover the cost of individual consultation sessions for employees and encourage employees to seek the services of professionals in mental well-being.

With increased recognition of the importance of mental health across the world, and the tremendous impact Covid-19 had on mental well-being, it is fitting that we, as one of the largest employers in the country, take this important step today. We look forward to seeing other organizations follow suit to recognize and promote the importance of mental wellbeing for employees everywhere.”
