Building Resilience and Workplace Balance
Studies show that when trying to modify behaviour, individuals move through a series of stages. Alarmingly, less than 20% of a population is prepared to take action to change at any given time. Thus, action-oriented guidance helps promote individuals longing for a change in behaviour, whether it be changes in habits, nutrition or exercise routines. Our physician will help your employees create appropriate plans, attain goals and overcome barriers.
Our exercise coach will provide an
one-on-one assessment to improve employee productivity, safety and comfort. Muskoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are one of the top reasons for benefit claims and time-off for employees. From 2003-2007 Ontatio worker's compensation approved more than 187,000 MSDs claims that resulted in lost time from work. Employers paid more than $1 billionin both direct and indirect costs related to MSDs. In order to ensure a healthy workforce, an ergonomically correct workplace is essential.
Stress has many adverse effects on both mental and physical well-being. According to statistics Canada, 70% of doctor visits are stress related, 90%of Canadian's are stressed at work and 62% of Candian's listed their jobs as their primary source of stress. Employees affected by stress will have difficulties concentrating, decision making, will be constantly fatigued, have more missed days and have lower productivity. Our physician will work with your employees to help identify their stressors and provide them with evidence-based stress-relieving techniques to help build a resilient workforce.

Our yoga therapists will provide on-site yoga and meditation sequences focusing on posture, breathing and stress-reliving techniques to increase self-care and reduce mental strain. The Gallop Healthyways Well-being Index states that even if an individual is physically healthy but all other aspects of their well-being aren't equally balanced they are 68% more liketly to miss work as opposed a well-balanced individual who is only 36% likely to miss work. It is imperative to provide a well-balanced workplace to reduce absenteeism and increase positive energy.
Whether your employees are sitting, standing, or labour-working all day, correct postures and physical activity are mondatory for well-being. An average employee sits for 48, 360 hours over a 50 year career, equivalent to 5 years of sitting. 5 years is a long time to be inactive and sitting incorrectly!

Statistics show that employers spend approx. $34,600/100 employees/year as a result of backpain. The leading causes of backpain? Incorrect posture, physical inactivty, and weight. Our exercise coach will work with your employees to provide appropriate exercises, stretches and postures to incoportate into their working days to prevent and reduce pain as well as encourage healthier lifestyles. A healthier workforce is a happier and more productive workforce.
Fast and busy lives don't always allow healthy eating to be a priority. Recent studies show employees with unhealthy diets are 66% more likely to report loss in productivity than healthy eaters.
