Large and small companies worldwide are now becoming increasingly aware of their employees’ health and wellness. Is it startling that even during economic recession times, corporate fitness and wellness facilities were hardly affected?
Numerous studies have shown that, medical costs and costs associated with employee absenteeism are reduced dramatically when money is spent on workplace fitness and wellness programs. It also should come as no surprise Healthy and fit individuals generally need fewer health care services, take less sick days off and are more productive when they are at work. That information has guided more companies to take an interest in incorporating wellness facilities and programmes for their employees.
Corporate wellness programmes focus on prevention and how making healthier lifestyle choices are so vital. It is also interesting to note that during the recession, where people lost jobs, perhaps they also lost health benefits, and are now focused on remaining healthy.
Gone are the days when corporate companies offered wellness facilities merely as a benefit and perk to their employees. Now we’re seeing companies of all sizes engaging in employee health and wellness as an integral part of doing business.
Miles adds the setting up a fitness facility in the workplace can be easier than it first appears. Many office buildings have unused space, which can be easily turned into a gym.
It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to set up a corporate wellness facility. Miles Harrop, who consults to the Fitness Industry with 20 year experience in Fitness industry, a qualified Personal trainer, Life Coach and Hypnotherapist, is undertaking to assist corporate companies in setting up gym facilities in the workplace.
Miles says for as little as R75 000, a company can build a full-fitness facility including treadmills, exercise bicycles, elliptical trainers, weights and strength equipment. A cost-effective way for companies to do this is pay for the cost of facility and employees pay for the classes.
It only takes as little as 30-60 minutes of exercise during a busy day at work. Exercise can come in the form of running on a treadmill, using an exercise bike, or even using the dumbbells and strength equipment.
