In true spirit to ensure all its employees are in good health, Primedia Outdoor hosted Discovery Health Wellness Day on 29 August 2018 providing them with an opportunity to find out about their current health and lifestyle risks by completing a number of screenings assessments including glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, height, body mass index (BMI) and HIV.
Commenting on the significance of this all-day event, Dave Roberts, CEO of Primedia Outdoor said, “This wellness programme embodies our company value to invest in people and make meaningful contributions to help them grow – as both individuals and team members”. He further added, “Caring for our employees has always been close to our hearts considering the effort and time they put in on a daily basis to take Primedia Outdoor where it is now”.
As part of this wellness event in conjunction with Discovery and Primedia Group’s in-house wellbeing advisory, Prime Health, employees were comprehensively counselled on health-related issues, precautions, credit regulatory, optometry and healthy lifestyle. In addition, the renowned Virgin Active also brought an element of excitement by hosting a gym session for over an hour to inspire fitness and healthy living.
Tsholofelo Maimane, Human Capital Manager of Primedia Outdoor remains confident that this programme is vital in helping employees discover and experience meaning and purpose in both their personal lives and at work. “We were pleased with the excellent turnout of the people and the atmosphere all around was wonderful. This event was a true testament that Primedia Outdoor marks the wellbeing of its employees as one of the top priorities”.
