Any company aiming to be competitive requires a motivated, effective workforce. The health of our staff is crucial in guaranteeing our success.
In order to assist T-Systems employees to function at optimal levels, the company provides an Employee Wellness Program (EWP) known as Zinakekele (which means ‘Nurture Yourself’ in Zulu). Employees and their families have access to confidential support to help them address the challenges and problems experienced in modern life, e.g. physical, mental or emotional illness, financial, legal, marital or family distress, alcohol or drug abuse, or similar concerns. The program provides various counseling and support services that can be accessed by phone or face-to-face in both work and private environments. Employees are encouraged to take responsibility for their own health through an online portal where they receive personalised ‘Health Bytes’ (according to their profile) and can ‘Ask the Doctor’ about any concerns they have.
