Anjali Mukerjee Health Total’s health awareness initiatives with Corporate India
As over 50% of working population spends their time at work, it figures that the workplace has a major impact on an individual’s health and longevity. Studies have shown that—
- 46%of organizational workforce in India suffers from some form of stress
- 43%employees have skewed BMI (body mass index)
- 30%have hypertension risk
- 30%have diabetes
One cannot ignore how symbiotic employee health and organizational growth are.
Due to such alarming data on the health risks associated with corporate employees, Health Total has taken up the initiative to educate and empower the corporate world about preventive healthcare and managing health risk through natural nutrition therapy and basic lifestyle modifications. Health Total has been organizing free health assessment and nutrition counselling sessions in large corporates across India and till date, our teams of corporate doctors and nutritionists have visited 400+ companies over a period of one year and positively impacted the lives of more than 30,000 individuals through health seminars and one-on-one consultations. Some of the most esteemed names that Health Total has worked with are Bajaj Electricals, Tata Sons, TATA AIA, Tech Mahindra, BSNL and LIC.
Health Total’s powerful corporate wellness initiatives have garnered positive feedback from multiple corporate HR teams. One of their many observations has been that productivity of employees who took up the Health Total Programme increased significantly as compared to before. Similarly, multiple employees have benefitted by either losing weight or seeing improvement in stress levels or health conditions such as blood pressure and PCOD. With such positive outcomes, many employees have gone on to inspire their colleagues and family members to taking up the programme as well.
Perhaps what vouches most for the effectiveness of the Health Total programme is the fact that senior management, HR Heads and organizational heads from various corporates have been approaching Health Total for collaborating with them on bespoke employee wellness programmes, as these programmes present a win-win situation for all parties—because when the employee is taken care of, organizational growth becomes a natural and happy consequence.
