UOB Vietnam’s SME customers will get free access to Intellect’s app for three months which includes access to a 24/7 helpline, guided journals for daily reflections, and learning paths to help tackle everyday challenges such as stress caused from a busy work schedule.
The SMEs will also be offered an option to upgrade their access to further content such as well-being webinars and one-to-one coaching for their employees, at a discount.
Fred Lim, Head of Retail Banking, UOB Vietnam said,
“Developing resilience for SMEs through Intellect’s suite of manpower management solutions is how we support their long-term growth ambitions across the region.
With a stronger and healthier workforce, SMEs will in turn be able to drive optimal performance and strategic growth.”

Through the bank’s strong franchise across ASEAN, we aim to improve businesses’ access to affordable, quality mental wellness care across Southeast Asia.”
