FDH Bank plc recently donated K1.5 million to the Employers Consultative Association of Malawi (Ecam) to go towards the association’s annual conference taking place in Mangochi district.
Making the donation in Blantyre, FDH Financial Holdings Limited Head of Human Resources Chrispin Chikwama said Ecam plays a big role in dialoguing with government and employee unions on behalf of employers, necessitating the support.
“Ecam is our voice, they reach out to us and we share our position on particular issues and they represent us in the necessary forums. Further, the topic of the discussion this year is very important for employers and we saw it fit to support the couse,” Chikwama said.
Ecam Executive Council Member Anne Chavula thanked the company for the support.
She said the conference would focus on issues highlighted in the Occupational, Safety and Health (OSH) profile report and share insights on challenges of managing OHS.
“There are flaws in the system and employers are losing a lot of money to fraudulent accident claims and we want to deliberate on this to find lasting solutions,” Chavula said.
Meanwhile, over 85 customers of FDH Bank plc have cashed a combined K4 million from their allegiance to use of point of sale (PoS) devices in merchant shops and filling stations following a completion of the PoS and win promotion.
According to FDH Bank plc Marketing Manager Ronald Chimchere, the bank has been dishing out K50,000 shopping vouchers to 20 lucky customers and K40,000 fuel vouchers to nine lucky customers, each month, for the past three months.
He said the promotion has helped boost use of PoS devices that the company has put across the country.
“We are a digital innovation bank and at the heart of it is the customer; so, we are trying to enhance convenience for our customers wherever they are and we promise more innovations moving forward,” Chimchere said.
The promotion ended last week.
