The Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana (CAAB) held its first ever Wellness Day at the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport under the theme “Promoting Safer Skies through a healthy lifestyle” in partnership with Botswana Life. When speaking at the wellness day that comprised of a walk in the morning, aerobics and screenings for various diseases, CAAB Chief Executive Officer Puseletso Moshabesha expressed his gratitude to Botswana Life for partnering with them. Moshabesha said he hopes the collaboration is a beginning of a mutually beneficial arrangement as they prepare to roll out the same activity to their fellow employees at other airports across Botswana. “It gives me great pleasure to be standing before you because this is a demonstration of CAAB’s commitment to the health and welfare of its important assets; employees,” he said. He said their mission is to effectively and efficiently regulate and promote a safe, secure and sustainable aviation industry in line with international standards and norms, and they can only achieve this with a healthy workforce, hence the event. He said it’s obvious that through a healthy workforce the organisation releases improved business performance as its employees become productive and are engaged more. Botswana Life CEO Bilkiss Moorad encouraged CAAB employees to take their health seriously and also maintain their financial wellness because health wellness and financial wellness are closely tied. “In life there should be a balance in each and everything and you should be motivated to take care of wellness which will definitely result in you having your finances in check,” she said. Airport Services Manager Larona Mokete encouraged fellow colleagues to be ambitious but not dangerously ambitious. Mokete said it is important they set realistic goals while remaining disciplined to maintain healthy living.
