ING rewarded for employee wellbeing programme at RBI Awards

ING’s WQ Programme –it stands for Wellbeing Quotient – has been recognised at RBI’s annual global awards, sponsored by Fiserv.

ING collected the award for employee investment and the winning programme is the result of three years worth of work by ING exploring EQ, emotional intelligence and mindset and their value to the business.

Over a six month period, ING’s programme trains participants to become more attuned to different factors playing into their general health and, hopefully, improve their quality of life and work.

Four metrics - Eat, Move, Sleep, Relax - are measured on a fitness tracking band, linked to an app, which in turn can be linked to another app in which the group’s collective quotient can be measured.

To deliver the programme, ING has partnered with Lifeguard – experts in stress management, wellbeing and ‘corporate fitness’, and TomTom Sports, which supplies the band.

Each member is equipped with a band that tracks steps taken, heartbeat, calories burnt, activity and percentage body fat.

Professionals are on hand in the form of former Olympic athletes, professors and coaches in nutrition, fitness and sleep.

Almost all (95%) of ING’s 350 global Financial Markets sales staff across 30 countries have signed up to the programme.

It is executed in six week blocks, each focusing on one of the four key metrics, Eat, Sleep, Move, Relax. And the programme is also open to family, friends, colleagues and clients.

WQ follows the Emotional Quotient (EQ) programme, which ING has run over the last three years, with the aim of bringing emotional intelligence into leadership.
