Emirates NBD Raises AED 50,000 In ’2017 Employee Fitness Challenge’ For Al Jalila Foundation
(21 May 2017)


Emirates NBD, a leading banking group in the region, completed an Employee Fitness Challenge, an initiative which raised AED 50,000 for Al Jalila Foundation, a global philanthropic healthcare organisation launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. In efforts to promote an active lifestyle and healthy wellbeing for its employees, the bank contributed AED 200 for every kilogram lost.

Over a duration of one hundred days, the Emirates NBD Employee Fitness Challenge hosted weekly boot camps, circuit training sessions, running and stair climbing activities, culminating in a 5KM walkathon at Al Nasr Club. Staff members also had the opportunity to check their Body Mass Index before and after the challenge and take pride in their accomplishments.

Commenting on the initiative, Husam Al Sayed, Group Chief Human Resource Officer at Emirates NBD said: “As an organisation that places employee welfare at the heart of its corporate culture, Emirates NBD is proud to complete a highly successful employee fitness challenge. It was inspiring to witness our staff participate with vigour and determination to become more active and feel healthier and stronger. I’d also like to thank our untiring volunteers from our award-winning Exchanger Volunteer Programme without whom this initiative would not have been possible.

“We take great pleasure in presenting a contribution of AED 50,000 to the Al Jalila Foundation, and will continue to implement more such programmes that further the health and well-being of people in the UAE,” added Al Sayed. 
In addition to the Employee Fitness Challenge, Emirates NBD has regularly promoted wellness initiatives within the bank, including employee health workshops, wellness talks and participation in local fitness events.
