GFA is well placed to offer holistic Corporate Fitness solutions to business and industrial houses across India. There are 16 types of Fitness but Corporate Employers and Employees looks to achieve goals beyond these 16. Increase in productivity is just one of the many corporate fitness goals.
In a chat, not long ago, with an Indian Captain of Indian Industry, he bemoaned the fact that Wellness in most corporate houses, especially in industrial “factory” corporations, workers still demand “oily, spicy gravy meals”.
A lot many corporations have a robust Wellness plan. But these schemes are restricted to health risk screening and assessment, mobile “app” based nutrition counselling, illness management programs and the like.
But is that enough – Wellness that is influenced by illness management? Aren’t these reactive? In several cases, the plans are in place only because HR laws in the countries where company’s clients are located, require such schemes. In almost all cases, the responses are not proactive.
Without going into statistics, suffice it to say that a significant proportion of our urban Indian population is burdened by a host of hypokinetic diseases including obesity and diabetes or “diabesity”, hypertension and coronary heart diseases, etc.
Hypokinetic diseases apart, today’s corporate managers have also to tackle debilitating effects of the rapidly deteriorating environment.
