Nexans Olex and Inspiro partner to promote positive health and wellbeing in the workplace

Thu 19 Jan 2017

With nearly 3 million Victorians spending almost 1/3 of their day at work, the workplace is an important place to have a positive impact on our health and wellbeing. Workplaces can provide a setting which supports employees to live healthy lifestyles and make the healthiest choice the easiest choice.

Together Nexans Olex and Inspiro have partnered to develop and launch the ‘Fit for Life’ program that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Nexans staff members, and ensure the workplace is a positive, healthy environment.

With nearly 3 million Victorians spending almost 1/3 of their day at work, the workplace is an important place to have a positive impact on our health and wellbeing. Workplaces can provide a setting which supports employees to live healthy lifestyles and make the healthiest choice the easiest choice.
 
Together Nexans Olex and Inspiro have partnered to develop and launch the ‘Fit for Life’ program that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Nexans staff members, and ensure the workplace is a positive, healthy environment.
 
Research states that a healthy work environment positively impacts employee health and wellbeing which not only means increased productivity, but less sick leave and reduced staff turnover. Health approaches that people apply at work can also have a positive flow on affect to their home life and families. Nexans Olex values the contribution of all of their employees and are committed to giving each of them the opportunity to make the right choices in life. As such, we have formed a partnership with Inspiro to provide the relevant information and support to help them on their journey.
 
Inspiro Health Promotion Officer Rachel Messer says that “the ideal workplace offers an environment that enables employees to live healthy lifestyles”. Throughout the program Inspiro will be providing assistance to Nexans on ways a workplace can promote positive health and wellbeing, such as healthy eating, health tips for shift workers and emotional wellbeing.
 
‘Fit for Life’ was launched this month at Nexans’ Olex Safety day with a healthy BBQ.
