Demola Sogunle, CEO of Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, has stated that the company is committed to promoting healthy retirement among employees.
Sogunle spoke on Saturday during a webinar called ‘RetireFit’ which was organized by the group.
He said, “At Stanbic IBTC, we recognise that keeping fit is an essential part of your wellbeing journey, hence, our reason for organising this event.
“As the theme implies, ‘RetireFit’ is our attempt to encourage as many people as possible to adopt a healthy lifestyle that optimises their wellbeing beyond their active work life. To us, retiring fit incorporates healthy living, being physically active with strategic financial planning for the future”.
The company has already conducted virtual financial fitness sessions in which it delivered pertinent insights to its clients to help them make informed financial decisions, maximize their profits now, and protect their livelihoods after work.
“We are taking it a step further to allow you to physically practise some of the health and wellbeing tips we share at those sessions,” Sogunle said.
He advised them to take care of themselves and be physically active just as much as they took care of their money.
He stated that the organisation would like to see more people become physically and financially fit.
Recall that, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, a subsidiary of Standard Bank Group, has urged for enhanced collaboration between financial service providers and telecom carriers to promote financial inclusion in Nigeria.
Babatunde Ogunleye, the equity research analyst at Standard Bank Group West Africa, emphasized the importance of improving Nigeria’s financial inclusion index.
Nigeria, he claims, has yet to reach its financial inclusion targets, with an estimated 38 million adult population lacking access to financial services.
