Corporate Wellness

A lawyer looks after your legal health and an accountant looks after your fiscal health: I look after your physical health.

Many corporate companies are becoming increasingly aware of health issues, such as metabolic syndrome* and the impact that work and lifestyle choices can have on staff wellbeing and productivity performance.

A New Zealand wellness in the workplace survey 2013 report found:

  • Overall absence was 4.5 days on average per employee;
  • The median total cost for each absent employee in 2012 was $837;
  • The most effective option for managing absence levels, was high levels of employee engagement (61.3%).

Workplaces are ideal settings for encouraging positive health behaviours because of the significant amount of time people spend at work and because colleagues and organisations can provide positive support for those trying to improve their health.

It is widely known that a healthier, fitter and happier workplace can lead to:

  • Reduced stress levels;
  • Enhanced employee morale;
  • Increased workforce productivity;
  • Increased job satisfaction;
  • Reduced absenteeism;
  • Reduced staff turnover;
  • Reduced mistakes caused by physical and mental fatigue.

I can provide personalised health initiatives as a way to encourage employee health and wellness. By taking a proactive approach towards employee health, workplace stress can be alleviated; minimising lost working time and improving overall wellbeing.

The Stress Management Exercise Association Endorsed Programme (SMEAEP) enables exercise professionals like myself, who are registered movement providers and SMEAEP endorsed, to provide exercise programmes to workplaces that are Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) exempt, and tax deductable.
