Thabong; Welkom: On Thursday, 18 October 2018, Thabong and Welkom Cluster stations received financial wellness programs from one of the leading financial institutions through a launch of an on-site office in both Thabong and Welkom SAPS premises.
Thabong and Welkom Cluster offices linked with Metropolitan to foster a mutual partnership with the two stations, by opening these on-site offices to bring services closer to the members.
The launch started at Thabong SAPS where Col Pule Solo represented the management of Thabong SAPS while in Welkom Col Ramoolla was pesent for the second launch.
Metropolitan North Eastern Free State Regional Manager; Mr Ngako Marakalala, outlined the purpose of bringing the offices to the stations at both launches.
He said the men and women in blue need financial wellness in their own working environment to save the employer’s time spent by members who leave their work to sort out their financial problems.
The Key Account Manager, Me Nozimanga Sokana told members in her address that they are aware of the nature of the work which the SAPS members engage in where others are working shifts and have limited time to run errands when they are off duty.
Colonel Solo and Collonel Ramoolla embraced the gesture by cutting the ribbon and welcoming Metropolitan into the premises of both stations.
The festivities were concluded with financial wellness activities such as spin-a-wheel and jenga. The purpose of these games was to teach members about financial wellbeing.
