Sun Life Philippines was recognized in the 57th Anvil Awards for its programs promoting health and wellness among its employees.

A Silver Anvil Award we bestowed on #ProtectedAsOne, Sun Life’s vaccination program for its employees which consisted of a creative information drive, a series of webinars, and community engagement over digital channels. It successfully reduced vaccine hesitancy among employees and led the company to a 97% success rate in its vaccination efforts. As the employees’ confidence level increased, the company was also able to continue business operations and fulfill its obligations to clients.

Meanwhile, Sun Life’s campaign to promote fitness through walking, Go Beyond Steps Challenge, was also awarded a Silver Anvil Award. Launched prior to the pandemic, the campaign quickly shifted to digital as lockdowns were imposed. It proved to be more relevant as it prompted employees to exercise despite being stuck indoors. Digital tracking, community workouts, and exciting rewards kept everyone engaged. Moreover, as employees reached their monthly steps goal, Mingo meals were donated to the Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation, giving them more reason to exercise.

“The health and safety of our employees are our top priority, even prior to the pandemic. We are always eager to mount programs that would ensure their overall wellness,” Sun Life Chief Human Resources Officer Yahmin Mattison said. “To have our efforts recognized by the Anvil Awards panel is an honor. This will inspire us to be even more creative and innovative in engaging the Sun Life community.”

An annual recognition program for exceptional public relations and tools, the Anvil Awards is spearheaded by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines.
