“Corporate Fitness Classes: Fitter Employees can usher Business Growth”
In any Corporate, the manpower or the employees are one of the most important assets of the whole setup. The success of any corporate business is heavily dependent on their employee’s productivity and work performance. If the employees are allowed to rust with the passing years, then this can really harm the brand image of the corporate, in turn ruining the growth prospects in the long run. Due to the growing age, daily work stress, family tensions, financial issues etc., every employee is bound to face some or the other health issue. Hence, it is essential for the corporates to employ certain positive measures which enable the employees to stay focused on their work and give the desired output. Organizing fitness classes frequently, within the office premises can be one such positive measure. Such classes can help to root in, both physical and mental fitness within the employee’s work environment, as well as in their day to day life.

This results in increased work productivity for the corporates. According to another research, it is found that 70 to 90 percent of the total health care spending among the corporates, worldwide is caused due to several preventable or modifiable health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, obesity etc. A Fitness class organized within the office premises will not only help in keeping the employee fit and healthy but will also bring in more business due to increase in productivity and work performance.
