Staying Healthy with Mahindra AFS
‘To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.’ – Buddha
In today’s environment, a working person spends most of his or her time at the workplace. With hectic work schedules, taut deadlines and changing lifestyles, the toll on the body is severe. And it becomes imperative that we find the time to keep ourselves healthy and well.
How important is it for companies to partake in contributing to the health of its employees?
The answer is very simple – Extremely important.
While it is very important for the employee to be self-motivated to take care of his health and wellness, it is also crucial that the company takes its own set of efforts. Not just psychological but also physical well-being of the employee.
At Mahindra AFS, we constantly look out for our employees’ well-being. From dieticians at every location to encouraging regular medical checkups, you can have it all. To also ensure this happens on an ongoing basis, we have devised a comprehensive wellness plan with an aim to keep our people healthy, mentally and physically!
In order to start a program like this, people need to understand the basics, and that’s where we start from. Health Education is a must and the truth is most of us are still unaware of the health practices one must follow. Through our Health and Wellness initiative, we have been able to spread the right message through interesting conversations and platforms.
Through regular emails, net-chats, and open door dieticians and doctors, our employees not only feel motivated but also empowered to talk, learn, and interact with everything related to their health and well-being.
The initiative doesn’t stop here. We have also set up customized menus at our offices and plants to assist our employees to maintain healthy food habits. Starting from soups to salads and fruit bowls, we have it all!
Taking this yet a step forward, we also have a planned calendar for health and wellness programs in accordance with national health observance days. We have set up health check-up camps and physiotherapy services to ensure all our employees are a part of the daily health and wellness regimen.
We strongly believe that the most successful organizations in the world are those who create a healthy and happy work environment!
