Making sure that the increasing emphasis on customer experience doesn't take away employee wellbeing out of the agenda, Bahraini operator, Batelco has launched a new programme under the theme of 'Heart to Heart', aimed at enhancing the lifestyle and wellbeing of its staff.

The programme will feature regular guest speakers who will present on a variety of topics that are important to men and women alike. To launch the programme, Batelco invited popular author and nutritionist Alia Almoayed, who gave a presentation on healthy eating habits for overall health.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said: “Batelco recognises that its employees are of the upmost importance to the company and accordingly every effort is made to enhance their work and lifestyle experience. The introduction of this exciting new programme is a welcome addition to the benefits Batelco provides for its employees.”

“One of our HR Department’s priorities is the wellbeing of staff. We understand that everyone can experience daily struggles with their children and families so we want to support them and help them achieve a good work life balance,” said Ebru Pilav , general manager, human resources and corporate services, Batelco.

A study conducted by MEED earlier had revealed that companies saw a return of investment by 300% on the amount spent on employee wellness programmes.
