Health Screening! Why Bother?

Health Screening! Why bother?

Today’s busy lifestyles can greatly affect the health of employees in all types of businesses. Stress, late nights at the office, fast-food lunches, missed meals and shift work can all create havoc with our body’s immune, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and nervous system. This can lead to more serious illness, such as cardio vascular diseases (ie: heart attack and stroke). The world’s number one killer.

  • At least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be prevented!

Statistical evidence also shows an increase in pre-diabetes. This is a condition that is reversible through lifestyle and diet change, however if left can lead to incurable Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Employees overweight and over 40 have a higher than 1 in 2 chance of being pre-diabetic. A simple glucose test can identify any potential risk and simple lifestyle changes can avoid it!

While this holds true for individuals, it also applies to your company. Staying fiscally fit as an organisation can be directly linked to the physical health of your workforce. Investing in office equipment and technology is only one part of having a successful business. Invest in your employees they are your company’s greatest asset.

Take the proactive approach to employee wellness with our three stage programme.

We will also supply group exercise classes onsite or at one of our available studios.
