ISSA Recognition Programme Two New Certifications for the NSIF

The International Social Security Association (ISSA) has once again awarded the Cameroonian Institution two certificates of excellence in social security administration, communication and health promotion in the workplace.


Certification for health promotion in the workplace

Health promotion in the workplace is an approach designed to protect and improve employees' health by using and exploiting the efforts made by employers to adopt a management style that encourages autonomy and those made by employees to maintain their well-being.  

This approach is based on actions such as health education courses; local provision of fitness facilities; company policies to promote healthier behaviour; the creation of a work environment that encourages health; the creation of a work environment where known health and safety hazards have been eliminated and where new problems can be identified and dealt with as they arise.

 As the State's social security arm, the NSIF works effectively to protect its staff's physical integrity and health to improve their working conditions and encourage their motivation and involvement, as workers' health is a key factor in productivity.

Certification of communications by social security administrations

 Furthermore, communication plays a vital role at the institutional level because it promotes the overall image of the institution and its commitment. It is therefore clear that NSIF communication promotes values and is committed to guaranteeing excellent services for the benefit of its social insured persons.

This has earned it two new certifications that meet the expectations and requirements of the ISSA's recognition programmes, valid for three years and renewable after a further expert assessment.      

 Added to the four previous certifications, Cameroon's NSIF maintains its place among the leading social security institutions in Africa. It is, therefore, a crowning achievement for all the efforts and sacrifices made, not only by the Top Management but also by the entire staff of the NSIF, who have also been honoured.
