|Unitrans Namibia, in collaboration with the WBCG and the Ministry of Health and Social Services, launched its Employee Wellness Programme on June 13, 2022, at its Head Office in Walvis Bay. The wellness campaign is aimed at sensitizing employees on various health conditions and encourage health-seeking behaviours. |
According to Ms. Rosita Van Wyk, Human Resources Manager at Unitrans, Namibians and everyone else around the world have been dealing with major health, business, and lifestyle changes that have resulted in profound changes since the onset of Covid-19. “In light of this, Unitrans implemented measures to ensure a safe working environment, as well as means to mitigate the impact on our business and our people through our business contingency plan,” she stated. “Our management team was one of the first employees to visit the mobile clinics, and I would like to commend the WBCG Wellness Service team on their excellent service.
The team is well-equipped and organized, making them the best partner for this initiative,” Ms. van Wyk added.
Mr. Charlton Swarts, speaking for the employees, stated that the WBCG Wellness Service team was quick and efficient. He further stated, that the team was professional, courteous and helpful in responding to questions. “I had hoped to complete these tests on my own, but I never found the right time. I appreciate Unitrans for making these services available to us at work,” Mr. Swarts said. Unitrans’ has made it a point to emphasize that their employees are their most valuable asset and should be treated as such. As a result, Unitrans Namibia plan to launch quarterly initiatives to address specific health and wellness issues, which will be highlighted in the report WBCG will provide once the campaing is completed.
The WBCG is committed to providing health and wellness services to the transport and logistics industry, and we look forward to more industry collaborations.
