KBC Bank – Case Study

Company Overview

As one of the most recognisable financial institutions in Europe and with over 38,000 employees, KBC Group continuously strive to increase the engagement of their workforce, support company values, and foster a progressive, positive culture.

Operating in a highly competitive FinTech market, KBC Bank Ireland needed to attract the right people and create an environment where employees would stay and grow. An essential part of this strategy was to support the wellbeing of their employees through the KBC sustainability programme.

The Challenge

The aim of the KBC wellbeing programme is to support employees in all aspects of their wellbeing including health & exercise, nutrition, work life balance, mental health and wellness.  Eager to offer their employees the most suitable and effective wellness solution, KBC continually review and enhance their wellbeing offerings.

The Solution

In 2016, under the wellbeing pillar of their sustainability programme KBC launched POWR Life.

“The tool provides our employees with an innovative and easy way to access support, both at home and in work. The clinical assessments address all areas of wellbeing under our wellness program and the nature of the tool allows users to learn and develop resilience at their own convenience.

The positive impact of POWR Life on our employees has been easily quantified with the comprehensive reporting capabilities from the platform.  This allows us to assess and critically analyse the general wellbeing of the company and identify priorities for our wellbeing programme going forward. It’s the first time we’ve been able to get a clear picture of company-wide wellbeing.”
