Kuwait Finance House (KFH) – Bahrain, one of the leading Islamic banks and an integral contributor to the evolution of Bahrain’s Islamic Financial sector, has announced the launch of its new “Better Life” employee wellbeing program, which is developed and delivered in partnership with Hintsa Performance, a world leader in wellbeing and human high-performance coaching.
The newly launched program aims to support all KFH employees in enhancing their wellbeing and attaining better health results through a holistic, evidence-based and personalized approach. It further focuses on enabling employees to unlock their full potential for enjoying a better life and achieving sustainable high performance in all aspects of life. The program is built on a foundation of holistic wellbeing with a focus on improving employee wellbeing on key elements including ‘physical activity’, ‘nutrition’, ‘sleep and recovery’, ‘biomechanics’, ‘mental energy’, ‘general health’ and the ‘core’ – which entails an individual’s identity, purpose and control in life.
The program is composed of two main subprograms the ‘Team wellbeing program’ and the ‘Digital program’. KFH team members who have been enrolled in the ‘Team wellbeing program’ will undergo bi-monthly interactive webinars on health and wellbeing, group discussions and activities as well as focused one-to-one coaching sessions with a designated performance and wellbeing coach from Hintsa Performance; whereas the ‘Digital wellbeing program’ allows all KFH employees to access and use Hintsa’s ‘Better Life app’ designed to assist them in reaching their wellbeing targets and to also digitally keep in touch with a performance and wellbeing coach.
Commenting on the new program, Ms. Sara Zainalabedin, Head of Human Resources at KFH-Bahrain said: “An organization’s team members are its most valuable asset. In KFH-Bahrain, we consider investing in human capital as a key pillar when developing business strategies. We believe that the health and wellbeing of all KFH staff members is a core priority and a business value of strategic importance for us as an organization, and we are confident that our partnership with Hintsa Performance will be a key enabler for all KFH team members to improve their overall health and wellbeing, recognize their full potential and drive their professional growth.”
“We are pleased to be partnering with a reputable organisation such as Hintsa Performance for the delivery of the employee wellbeing program which provides KFH employees with the necessary tools to lead a better life. The program focuses on promoting and sustaining employee wellbeing while at the same time optimizing performance in and outside of work and achieving best possible levels of work life harmony. The program further gives KFH members the opportunity to personalise their wellbeing journey by focusing on what matters to them the most in terms of their own wellbeing targets, needs and priorities,” she added.
