Wema Bank Plc has announced the 2022 edition of Wemalympics to ensure that its employees experience a high level of healthy living, physical fitness, emotional balance, and workplace collaboration.
A testament to the bank’s dedication to enhancing cross-regional teamwork, collaboration, and work-life balance is the inter-regional competition known as Wemalympics.
The bank justified the initiative by saying that it places a high value on a collaborative work environment, healthy competition, and staff members leading healthy lives.
“Since 2017, we have leveraged Wemalympics as a platform to underscore the importance of team spirit and foster collaboration among staff, within and beyond the workplace,” said Managing Director/CEO of Wema Bank, Ademola Adebise.
“Wemalympics aligns with our core values of ‘Think Play’ and ‘Think Partnership’, and beyond the games, the initiative now encourages bonding among staff families as kids will take part in this year’s event,” Adebise added.
The theme for this year’s competition, “Test Your Audacity,” is a challenge to the bank’s employees to keep pushing forward and being fearless as they compete in the games and even more so in all facets of their lives. Employees from various regions will compete for medals in sports like football, athletic competitions, table tennis, scrabble, chess, arm wrestling, and electronic games at the Wemalympics in 2022.
