All too often we focus on the business benefits from implementing a workplace wellness programme. Reducing sickness absence, improving productivity and enhancing workplace morale are all outcomes you can expect from a carefully structured workplace wellness programme. This is not, however, what drives Synergy Health to develop and deliver leading edge workplace wellness programmes.
Read the personal stories below. These are employees that have participated in our programmes. It is why we do what we do.
I was on one of the stress courses with Airways last year when you did your presentation on nutrition and the paleo/primal diet.
It took me a while to fully implement it but over the last few months I have done and the results have been amazing. In total I’ve lost 12kg. My energy levels are high and consistent (no more mid-afternoon slump). My previously rampant psoriasis has retreated. My brain feels sharp and alert. I feel fitter and more healthy than I can ever remember (AND I can eat bacon and eggs for breakfast whenever I like), and probably best of all my wife thinks I’m a mew man and LGN!
In short I want to thank you for being the inspiration to change my life.
Before I jumped on board the GCC I was a complete couch potato in every way.
I had high blood pressure, extremely high cholesterol and all of this required medication to control.
Since starting this I no longer have any of these medical conditions and my cholesterol is now 1.5 the best of the best according to my doctor (who is trying to take the credit for this) but I know it has been due to GCC for getting me moving and making a difference in my life.
So a very big thank you for giving me a kick start and getting my butt moving and I will make the effort to continue this long after the finish.
Pera's StoryMy name is Pera and I am a very private person but after being in GCC for 12 weeks and seeing the changes that I have experienced in myself I definitely have something to share.
I have a genetic heart disease which has run rampart through my family. I lost my Dad and a brother to this cruel disease. In 1998 I was sent to Wellington for a heart by pass and returned a new man. But since then I have lived on a daily cocktail of 19 different pills and insulin injections. To be honest I wasn’t an active person, I was actively social but not actively active – if you know what I mean.
