A healthier, happier and more productive workforce.
Adopting a healthier lifestyle whilst managing a career, busy family and social life can seem like an impossible challenge for many.
And yet as an employer you already appreciate that healthier work workforce with a better work life balance are more likely to be productive, with a lower absence rate and less prone to stress related issues.
Workplace fitness a rapidly growing trend
A Workplace Wellness & Fitness Programme can help differentiate you in your market place, support recruitment, reduce attrition and potentially lower private health care premiums. Employee engagement improves along with productivity. Group based exercise not only improves individuals health but also can support healthier teams by bringing together people from a variety of functions and positions through a shared experience.
It may not surprise you that fitness related brands such as Sweaty Betty already offer free Workplace Fitness programs to their employees. Leading to very positive feedback and reflecting well on them as an employer.
