From The Desk Of...
NAZ FARROW, COO – HEALTH, COLONIAL GROUP INTERNATIONAL
It is well known that the average person spends the majority of their waking hours in the office. Through partnership with Virgin Pulse, CGI’s Corporate Wellness Program has been effective in inspiring members to incorporate movement into a traditionally sedentary environment.
With frequent challenges and a social component, employees are becoming more active as they are encouraged to increase daily steps. While this is beneficial during working hours, Corporate Wellness must extend beyond the workplace to achieve lasting effects.
Just as the encouragement of colleagues fosters a culture of wellness in the office, the support of family members and friends is essential in achieving health and fitness goals. Beyond daily activity, a balanced diet is integral in improving overall health.
With these facts in mind, I am thrilled to announce that as of April 1, the Colonial Wellness Program now includes the Nutrition and Friends and Family additions to the Virgin Pulse platform.
