    It is important for all Employees to familiarize themselves with the significance and general etiquette of Ramadan:

     

    Ramadan, for Muslims is generally a time of:

     

    • Prayer and spiritual reflection
    • Patience and controlling emotions
    • Refraining from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset

     

    In view of the above, some etiquette that should be observed during the month include:

     

    • Do not eat / drink / smoke / chew gum in public during or in front of colleagues / people who may be fasting during daylight hours
    • Do not offer a Muslim food or drink during fasting hours
    • Refrain from playing loud music in the car particularly when the call to prayer (Adhan) is being recited
    • Avoid using any kind of inappropriate language and avoid swearing

    • Analyze Your Spending and Create A Budget
    • Control Your Spending To Optimize Your Savings
    • Ideal Financial Planning
    • Tips For Better Financial Health

     

    Why is Financial Wellness Program Important?

     

    According to an article by Corporate Wellness Magazine on ‘What is Financial Wellness’.

     

    “A high level of financial wellness gives employees the ability to make better, more informed decisions and manage a successful long- term strategy. When employees have a comprehensive understanding of their finances, they can create effective strategies for dividing and potentially automating their paychecks between bill, savings, investments and other commitments. Employees will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to develop and support successful financial outcomes. In fact, studies show that people who regularly plan ahead for emergencies and other irregular expenses are 10 times more likely to be considered financially healthy than those who don’t, regardless of income or other demographics.”

     

     

    We thank every employee who participated in our Financial Wellness Program.
