Westpac staff keeping fit by walking

Westpac employees located at the head office in downtown Port Moresby have embarked on a weekly fitness walk to keep themselves physically fit.

These walks started in March and are slowly gaining popularity within the group.  If you are lucky, you might see a group of people in red walking the downtown surrounds every Wednesday afternoon. 

Head of Retail Banking Cameron Penfold said: "As part of our commitment to health, safety, wellbeing and employee care, we promote a healthy living lifestyle for our employees and we encourage staff members to do regular exercises so that they are healthy.  Being healthy contributes to them being productive at work and in every other aspect of their lives.”

Westpac hopes to see more of its staff members in other suburbs of the city and the country take part in the walks just to be physically fit.
