Corporate Wellness Company Mumbai
Wellintra Fitness is one of the best corporate wellness companies in Mumbai that helps the management of companies that care for employee wellness to devise effective weight loss programs, monitor goals and help tackle the growing epidemic of lifestyle diseases such as Diabetes, Hypertension, High BP etc. Caring for the well being of employees can help companies improve their bottom line because it is common knowledge by now that companies worldwide lose more revenue due to falling productivity levels of their employees than all other factors combines. We like to use the analogy of an organisation and a motor car. The individual employees of an organisation make up the parts and components of the money-making and profitable machine that we call a company or an organisation. An organisation is a machine just like a motor vehicle. A car needs to be serviced frequently and greased failing which the individual parts will fail after long hours of wear and tear. You can extend the life of a car and an organist ion by taking care of it’s parts (employees) and ensuring that all parts are in good working condition.
One has to accept that the stress and strains of modern life is undoubtedly taking a huge toll on the mental and physical health of people. Most people agree that the main stresses in their lives emanate from their workplaces.
Stress is the New Epidemic
Stress manifests itself in many forms which can be segregated mainly under three headers:
1. 48% of people surveyed in a recent widely publicized poll, reported lack of sleep or wakefulness.
2. 43% suffered from irregular appetite, meaning either loss of appetite or stressful binges.
3. Majority, almost 77% reported constant headaches and body aches.
Employers Lose Big Time
Employees who suffer from stress suffer from reduced attention spans and working memory due to failing health and will ultimately not deliver what is expected from them and become frustrated. This in term not only affects his relationships but also his level of energy. Lets observe how a stressed-out employee costs his / her employer:
1. Loss in productivity
2. Decrease in motivation
3. Reduced job satisfaction
4. Increased absenteeism
5. Higher number of bad decisions
What the Company Loses
All this as we are all aware of finally affects the company either in terms of lower profits or higher cost per employee. Health-related work losses are estimated to cost US companies more than $300 billion each year. And we are excluding the direct medical compensation! India is not far off the mark and is heading in similar directions and even more so due to far worse infrastructure than the US and extremely poor and even non-existent quality of life and leisure time and activities.
Breaking the Cycle
So how do Indian companies begin to tackle this problem? Well accepting the problem is one. And two – start initiating wellness education and fitness activities on a regular activities in order to make employees more aware of the problem and help them tackle their health issues problem. Whether it be though one off nutrition workshops or through regular yoga or zumba classes within their premises, a little activity often goes a long way in ensuring that employees get the message that their health is in their hands! And if they do not take care of their health and eat right, their careers are going to be headed downhill and along with it the fortunes of their employers!
