ACCESS Bank has opened a daycare at the bank's head office in Osu for staff.

The baby-sitting facility is part of the bank’s ‘We Care’ initiative that institutes measures to enable employees optimise productivity.

The daycare, which was inaugurated last Monday, is part of the bank's commitment to becoming the employer of choice and in providing a smooth transition to work for new mothers after resuming work from maternity leave.

Staff of the institution have lauded the initiative and expressed profound gratitude to the management of the bank.

Opening ceremony

At the opening ceremony, the Managing Director of the bank, Olumide Olatunji, expressed how delighted he was to open the crèche, saying “getting this facility expresses the bank’s commitment to our employees".

He noted that the creche was timely as it would provide a fantastic learning environment in which an experienced nursery team would deliver exceptional care to the children of staff.

The Head of Human Resources at Access Bank, Nana Adu Kyeremateng, explained that the initiative was a pilot that would increase in scale and replicated across regional hubs the bank operated in the country.

“I’m certain that this will go a long way to promote the bank as an employer of choice in the industry,” Nana Kyeremateng said.

To support the opening ceremony, Olumide was joined by Pearl Nkrumah, who is also the patron of the Access Women Network (AWN) and other executive members and staff of the bank.

The creche, which will be staffed and managed by Sparkle For Kids, will open from Mondays to Fridays during working hours.
