Mind & Body Fitness

Fitness of employees in the workplace is of prime importance to the company. Research has shown that a company with fit and healthy employees will increase its productivity through reduced medical bills , decreased absenteeism , lower workplace accidents , increased feeling of liking for work , positive work attitude and job satisfaction. In a work environment where safety and health must be maintained at its highest level , the company must ensure that the employees are fit.

To maintain this fitness level , there must be monitoring of each individual of his fitness status. To this end , the UKJK tests should be conducted on a regular basis.

To conduct the tests , it is proposed that fitness leaders be selected and trained to be facilitators of the test. These fitness facilitators would then be able to conduct the tests accurately and most importantly , to interpret the results of the tests. In addition to this, they will be equipped with a fair knowledge in the area of wellness.
