TORONTO – Manulife is announcing “Fuel Up Fridays”, a new initiative to support the well-being of its global team. Starting September 10th, Manulife will dedicate the second Friday of each month through the end of the year to “fueling up” through a morning of collective learning, followed by an afternoon off to recharge in support of physical and mental health.
In addition, Manulife is once again giving its more than 37,000 colleagues five additional personal days to use during 2022 in appreciation of all the hard work they’ve done helping people make decisions easier and lives better.
“Our team has shown incredible stamina as we continue to navigate the global pandemic, supporting our customers, our communities, and each other,” said Manulife CEO Roy Gori. “We know that many different factors contribute to our physical and mental well-being, and that’s why we’ll continue to take a holistic approach focused on fueling our creativity through learning, and fueling our resilience through rest.”
Throughout the pandemic, Manulife has been guided by its commitment to support the well-being of its global team, and to promote a greater sense of connectivity, engagement and inclusion. Earlier this year, Manulife launched “Elevate”, a programme of activities and celebrations around healthy living, and also marked the second “Thank You Day” off for all colleagues globally.
