Active Essex is partnering with health and fitness company BlitzFitMe to deliver a programme aimed at improving staff productivity and reducing absenteeism.
Why Worry About Health in the Workplace?
Each year more than a million working people in the UK experience a work-related illness, with high stress and anxiety putting the mental and physical wellbeing of employees at risk. According to the Department of Work and Pensions, an estimated 130 million days are lost to illness each year, at a cost of around £100 billion to the UK economy.
BlitzFitMe is a leading provider of corporate wellness services. The company’s goal is to support individuals to lead long, healthy and less stressful lives by promoting positive lifestyle changes including ‘eating clean, training hard and training right’.
A Proven Track Record
BlitzFitMe has a track record of producing tangible results. At one corporate client, a twelve-month case study showed a 14% increase in productivity following the introduction of the BlitzFitMe programme. For every £1 spent on the programme, the company calculated that it earned a £4 return.
What is the Programme?
The BlitzFitMe programme is a six-week exercise and nutrition course tailored to your company and employees. Each of the weekly sessions lasts 30-60 minutes and is held at the date and time of your choosing.
- Effective exercise methods at the office or at home.
- Improving posture to reduce back pain and other common injuries that can affect work.
- How food can prevent illness.
- Making meal plans.
- Food choices at work to avoid concentration and energy slumps.
Every aspect of the course is delivered using easy, accessible methods that your employees can enjoy and remember. The idea is to have fun as we learn invaluable techniques for enhancing wellness and productivity.
Participating employees are evaluated during the first and last sessions of the course so that we can show the progress they have made – and the employee that improves the most will be rewarded for their achievement. At the end of the course, BlitzFitMe will provide a full report.
