Bank Windhoek celebrates V-day by thanking frontlines healthcare workers

In celebration of Valentine's Day, Bank Windhoek staff members dressed up in white to honour healthcare frontline workers fighting COVID-19 on Friday, 12 February.

The World Health Organisation reported that going to work during the COVID-19 pandemic has placed frontline workers, especially those in healthcare, under immense pressure, putting their physical, mental, and social well-being at risk. Exposure to excessive stress for prolonged periods can have many harmful consequences on frontline healthcare workers' emotional and mental well-being, added the report.

Frontline workers are employees within essential industries, such as hospitals and other medical sectors, customer-facing banking services, and retail stores, especially during the lockdown in the early stages of COVID-19.

Research shows that the traditional lab coat was beige, but most medical institutions have adapted to wearing white coats because the colour symbolises life and purity. “As a responsible citizen, we thought it was a good idea to recognise our frontline workers who provide medical care by commemorating Valentine's Day 2021 dressed in white," said Bank Windhoek's Head of Corporate Affairs, Hayley Allen.​

Bank Windhoek's branches and departments were both excited to have been part of the initiative and wished all frontline workers all the best and a happy Valentine's Day.
