SINGAPORE - OCBC Bank has launched two new programmes aimed at improving the work-life balance of their employees.

The first offers employees the option to take up to three consecutive months of unpaid leave for any reason.

Employees will be allowed to take a maximum of two career breaks during their employment and during that time they will continue to be covered by OCBC's insurance plans for medical treatment and hospitalisation expenses

The second scheme is offered to employees with children preparing for their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).

Eligible employees will be allowed to use a number of their annual leave days to help their child prepare for their PSLE examinations.

The schemes are open to those who have served at least five years of service and are expected to benefit more than 7,000 staff from OCBC and its subsidiaries - OCBC Malaysia, OCBC China and Great Eastern Holdings.
