“Without health life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering- an image of death.” – Buddha
What a nice quote! Physical fitness is as important as mental fitness to strike a balance between work and life. Employers…are you accede with me? So, if you agree with me; what have you done for improving the physical health of your employees? If done nothing, then be quick! Otherwise, you will have to confront with awful situations, like less productivity, more sick days, absenteeism, etc. I can suggest you one way to purge these circumstances- incorporate gym or fitness center in your office/company. Good suggestion na? I know, you are thinking about the cost of establishing a gym…but, I am sure, it will be less than the medical insurance claims made by your employees.
Advantages of Corporate Gym
- Less health insurance claims…means saving of money for the company.
- Higher productivity.
