Khansaheb FM launches wellness programme with fitness wearables
At one of its contract sites in Abu Dhabi's Al Ghadeer Village, Khansaheb Group FM has offered 65 fitness trackers to all its employees
Khansaheb Group FM launched its corporate wellness programme by offering 65 fitness trackers to all its employees at one of its project sites in Abu Dhabi, Al Ghadeer Village.
With this initiative, Khansaheb Group FM aims to help employees count calories, track steps, and inspire friendly competition among themselves.
The employee with the highest number of steps will be rewarded every month with cash prices. The initiative, which draws inspiration from the recently concluded Dubai Fitness Challenge, is to encourage employees to make physical activity part of their daily routine to improve their health.
Other activities include weight-loss programmes, health checkups, and increased participation in local races and marathons.
Jennifer Peltenburg, FM director, Khansaheb UAE said: “The intention is to serve as each other’s cheerleaders and build a healthier, happier workforce together which in turn improves productivity and employee morale.
“Camaraderie is harder to measure, but is an important benefit of a workplace fitness programme. I believe that employers can have a big impact on their employees’ lives by creating an atmosphere that shows workers that they are valued and appreciated and employee health and wellbeing is a great place to begin.”
The FM company aims to roll out the programme across other sites in the future.
