Kuwait: Kuwait Finance House (KFH) has launched a campaign under the theme “Take your vaccine” to encourage its employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 in accordance with standard procedures.

The campaign includes different promotions, gifts and prizes aimed at motivating employees to take the vaccine, reflecting the bank`s keenness on the health of its employees and their families as well as the health of society members.

Meanwhile, the health authorities have given priority to the employees of local banks to get vaccinated as front-line workers. This should contribute to speeding up the vaccination process, maintaining the health of employees, and thus the ability to serve customers more efficiently and without interruption.

Deputy General Manager HR Operations and Rewards at KFH- Talal Almutairi, said that the bank is keen on implementing work protocols among employees during the pandemic, while providing advanced digital platforms for internal communication and Human Resources Information Systems through which employees view various services and features that concern them. This includes providing periodic Covid-19 disclosure to ensure the employee's health status in case of infection, suspicion or close contact and taking the necessary measures to maintain the safety of employees and customers.

“In addition to sterilizing workplaces on a regular basis, KFH has re-designed employees’ offices to meet health requirements and social distancing, in addition to designing flexible working hours in line with health precautions. Moreover, the bank provided the required tools to enable staff to work from home effectively”, Almutairi added.

He pointed out that KFH keeps supporting the efforts of the Ministry of Health by using its social media channels to publish standard health instructions and recommendations, as well as awareness of the importance of vaccination and adherence to the basic preventive measures through awareness informative messages and videos.

Seeking to raise community awareness, KFH collaborates with experts and doctors to discuss health issues and clarify, through the bank`s social media channels, important concepts about the current conditions. This content released by KFH through its social media channels, which have more than a million followers, witnesses great interaction and welcome from followers and audience due to its importance and direct impact on society.

KFH maintains its commitment to its leading societal and national role by supporting various initiatives that help society and support the government efforts, while appreciating the front-line heroes, adhering to government procedures and following the official instructions related to the current exceptional circumstances.

It is worth noting that KFH has launched several initiatives focusing on employee health and wellbeing, under the theme “Better Health Leads to a Better Life and a healthier organization”. KFH signed strategic partnerships with various health care providers as part of its wellbeing strategy for KFH Staff and to create a more dynamic, effective and efficient working environment.
