Stepping up for employee health
HEALTHY happenings are afoot at Fishburn Watson O'Brien where employees have enrolled for the Global Corporate Challenge.
Twenty-one staff will join 350,000 workers worldwide participating in the global employee health and performance program on Wednesday, May 27.
The local employees will team up and exercise to meet challenge milestones over 100 days of the program.
Today it is estimated the average worker takes 3000 steps per day - falling short of the World Health Organisation's recommended 10,000 steps - which could contribute to a rise in chronic conditions like obesity, type II diabetes, heart disease, stroke, depression and some cancers.
Therefore it's an issue Fishburn Watson O'Brien refused to take, sitting down.
"Employee health and wellbeing is a critical priority at Fishburn Watson O'Brien," partner Jay Clowes said.
"The challenge empowers our staff to adopt the lifestyle habits that will safeguard their wellbeing and workplace performance capacity over the long term."
