Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank Plc., Nnamdi Okonkwo, leading team members in the 10km road race, which was part of the Fidelity Bank Fit2Bond programme held in Lagos… at the weekend.

Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Plc., Nnamdi Okonkwo, has explained that the bank decided to embark on quarterly fitness exercise to ensure that the workers attained the required physical and mental alertness to deal with issues of modern day banking.

Okonkwo also believes that the quarterly fitness exercises by the bank’s workers across the country give Fidelity Bank workers the opportunity to get to know themselves more closely in a convivial atmosphere.

Speaking after the bank’s 10 kilometre road race in Lagos at the weekend, Okonkwo, said Fidelity Bank management decided to initiate the quarterly event when they realized that a healthy workforce make a productive staff, adding, “if you are not fit you cannot be as productive as required.

“These days when people drop off so easily, it is important that one works on his fitness. The essence is that we work hard and so like to play hard, and it also gives us the opportunity to bond.

“You can see that everybody is here irrespective of the status of staff. This is not restricted to Lagos, as all the zones and branches are doing it across the nation.”

Also speaking on the quarterly exercise, a Fidelity Bank executive director, Chijioke Ugochukwu, said the event “gives our staff the opportunity to recuperate from office and daily life stress,” adding that aside the 10 kilometre road race, the workers also play football and other games.
