With the goal of nurturing a culture of wellness in the company as well as to support the employees in their personal journeys to stay healthy, reduce risk factors for illness and injury, and generally to improve their health and well-being, PGA Sompo launched its Wellness Program for its employees on August 24, 2018 which will run for eight (8) weeks.
The program s facilitated by an International Wellness Consultant started with the Wellness Day wherein a brief presentation on balanced nutrition, weight management, and a healthy active lifestyle was conducted. Free inner body scan was also provided which gave the employees a picture of their body composition.
Highlighting the wellness program was the 8-week Weight Loss Challenge. A total of 18 employees who were assessed to be overweight/overfat joined the challenge. Weekly weigh-in, wellness lectures focusing on good nutrition and long-term health, and recognition of the Biggest Loser of the Week are done throughout the duration of the challenge. Recognition and awards await the contenders as they vie for the top slots for the Biggest % Weight Loser and Biggest % Inch Loser at the end of the 8-week challenge.
