BTPN Empowerment Program to Raised Customer Capacity

SAMARINDA - Wednesday, 25 May 2011, PT Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Nasional Tbk (”BTPN”) held the Interactive Dialogue with the theme of “READY for Happy Pension” (“SIAP Pensiun Bahagia”) for the civil servants in Samarinda city, located at Gedung DPP KORPRI of East Kalimantan, Jl. Bhayangkara No. 60 Samarinda, East Kalimantan. This interactive dialogue is conducted to provide comprehension for self-preparation to the civil servant who will be entering pension period.

According to Rizal Algamar, Corporate Social Responsibility Head of BTPN, based on the result of the survey, usually in entering the pension period the retiree candidate will experience or face issues in three aspects which are health, economy as well as psychology. But often, the retirees only put their focus on the aspect of physical and economic health. While the mental and psychology issues are less properly attended.

Therefore in this Interactive Dialogue event hosted by professional psychologist, there are several aspects which are planted to the participants to be ready to enter into the pension period. Those aspects are SIAP: (S)elect the self-interest and potential, (I)Remember to optimize the self-potential, (A)Manage the steps to make all the hopes come true, (P)Decide and prepare starting from now.

“Through this Interactive Dialogue, we hope that the civil servants when going into retirement can prepare themselves in stages before entering the pension age. So that, pension is not the end of their career, but the beginning of the new phase of life which is happier and more productive,” said Rizal Algamar.

Along this quarter I of 2011, the Interactive Dialogue programs are held in several branches of BTPN in several areas with its partners. Based on the survey conducted by BTPN towards the participants participated in the Interactive Dialogue in several cities, around 93% of the respondents feel the benefit of the training topic and realize that the pension period is eventually a better and happier life opportunity.

Further Rizal explained that this Interactive Dialogue is one of the pillars of the Healthy & Wealthy Pension (Pensiun Sehat & Sejahtera) (PSS) Program of BTPN. PSS is an empowerment program and the realization of the awareness of BTPN to the retirees and also to the retiree candidates. Other than providing financial solution, the main focus of BTPN is to increase the capacity of the customer through the empowerment programs.
