iCare Benefits joins the Business Call to Action with a pledge to provide workers with access to essential items while eliminating informal lending
Singapore, January 23, 2017 /3BL Media/ – Employee-benefit programme iCare Benefits has joined the Business Call to Action (BctA) with a commitment to provide 80 million workers worldwide with access to essential products and services by 2020. By 2019, the company aims to enable access to free education for over 32 million workers and their families through its online platform.

Hint: it’s not free yoga classes, the drink fridge or bring-your-dog-to-work Fridays. It’s the idea of delivering up Goodness as part of the employee experience, which is even more powerful in a global context, as businesses continue to be challenged to create a unified corporate culture that transcends borders and leverages diversity.
In the area of employee engagement, the current trend is to connect programs with a company’s core business. But there’s a new, opposite strategy as well: encouraging employees to take time away from work to explore personal goals.
