All BMMI Bahrain staff to get medical insurance
Manama, February 12, 2014
BMMI, a Bahrain-based retail, distribution and contract supply group, has extended its medical insurance scheme to include all of its employees based in the country.
The new medical insurance scheme is aimed at helping ensure the wellbeing and satisfaction of the group’s team.
The scheme is being provided through BNI and will cover a total of 404 employees in Grades One to Three, as previous medical insurance only covered employees in Grade Four or up, said a BMMI statement.
The request for medical insurance for all staff was the one made most frequently in the group’s employee opinion surveys over the past two years. By implementing the scheme, BMMI’s management hopes to provide a great boost to employee morale and productivity, it added.
Commenting on the move, Mohammed Turaif, the HR (Operations and Administration) manager said: "BMMI has always prioritised the wellbeing of its employees and we have been working really hard to provide this much needed benefit to all of our team."
“Our Group believes that our people are at the core of our success and we strive to take every measure to help increase their satisfaction and to be one of the kingdom’s most people-focused employers,” noted Turaif.
He stated that the move comes with the full support and backing of BMMI’s top management.
President and CEO Gordon Boyle said, "At BMMI we truly believe in the importance of our people, it is thanks to them we are one of the leading companies in the kingdom. In our ongoing process to make BMMI the employer of choice, I am personally very pleased that we have been able to execute this initiative and provide medical insurance coverage to all employees that belong to our Bahrain-based family."
"The well-being of our employees is top priority and I am proud to be a part of a company that has worked hard to continuously support the health and safety of its team," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
