In a bid to provide a relaxed atmosphere for staff members and ensuring a friendly working environment, the United Bank for Africa (UBA) on Saturday, 8th October, 2016 conducted their quarterly ‘Jogging to Bond’ exercise.
The exercise started at Aberdeen Road Junction and ended at the Njala Venue Resort, along the Aberdeen Beach Road.
Staff members were accompanied by Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ndubuisi Ejiofor, and other top management staff, who all participated in the jogging from Sir Samuel Lewis Road to the Aberdeen Beach.
Mr. Ejiofor said ‘jogging to bond’ is a worldwide event that took place in all UBA locations across the globe, and that the exercise was borne out of the belief that the human capital of the bank was of immense importance to management.
He said the exercise would keep everybody fit and enable staff members to attend to customers effectively, adding that a healthy worker is a more productive worker.
He said even though the jogging was done on Saturday, it had no negative effect on their operation since their Automated Teller Machine (ATM) works throughout the day and night for customers to access to money at any time.
Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Mohamed Konneh, said the exercise was part of achieving “employees’ wellness initiative” designed by UBA management all over the world to ensure a healthy human resource and a sober minded management system among staff and customers.
He said the activity was unanimously undertaken by UBA employees all over the globe, from the nineteen African countries where the bank has establishments and in America, France, United Kingdom and beyond.

He said the exercise was organised quarterly and that it was being spiced up with activities including football, thug-of-peace, among others, adding that it also helps to raise awareness about the operations of the bank.
He said the exercise further helps to inform the public about the bank’s products including ATM, MasterCard, visa card, and internet banking, among others.
