The Executive Chairman of Nationwide Medical Insurance (NMI), Nana Awuah-Darko Ampem II, has urged employees to consider the healthcare needs of individuals and families and provide them with affordable health insurance policies.
According to him, this will enable NMI to achieve its vision of becoming the dominant financier of healthcare services in the private medical sector.
Nana Awuah-Darko Ampem II stated that private health insurance should not be the preserve of the rich or elite, but also people from less privileged backgrounds and underserved communities. He indicated that this can be made possible by leveraging technology.
“People from all walks of life, especially in the retail sector, should have health insurance. Between pension, life and health insurance, health insurance is the most important because is what you need to stay healthy in your active years and even during your pension. This vision is possible, and it can only be accelerated by leveraging technology,” he said
He entreated employees to believe in the Nationwide vision and see themselves as agents who cause that dream to be realised. He further thanked employees for their dedication and hard work toward success of the company
Nana Awuah-Darko Ampem II made these remarks at the Brand Awareness Campaign launch; organised to help improve knowledge of the NMI brand for employees, and also to help them understand and appreciate the brand’s purpose, vision and values. The campaign was to drive conversation on building a vibrant and thriving internal culture defined by NMI values
The Chief Executive Officer of Nationwide Medical Insurance, Nancy Ampah, said Nationwide Medical Insurance is a forward-looking company – and even before the advent of universal health coverage, the company’s founders were driven by the need to provide access to quality and affordable healthcare on the vehicle of insurance.
She told employees to see themselves as part of a company that aims to make a difference in society, the lives of its subscribers and the industry as a whole. “We will continue to sustain this drive and together build a culture that puts our values into action and serves everyone,” she added.
CEO of Strategic Communications Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa), Esther A N Cobbah – who spoke on the responsibilities of employees as brand ambassadors of NMI – advised each staff of NMI to be an embodiment of what NMI stands for. She said: “As brand ambassadors of NMI, everything you do should reflect the NMI Brand promise of dependability”.
