Promoting Mental and Physical Wellbeing
Sri Lanka’s largest fitness aggregator and marketplace, Fitzky has partnered with Unilever Sri Lanka, one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods companies in the country, to promote physical wellness among Unilever employees through a series of exclusive fitness programmes. The partnership was formed to promote health and wellbeing within the corporate sector.
Recent studies by BMC public health show that working from home, can often cause mental and physical stress due to the monotonous nature of a day-to-day lifestyle with no human interaction.
Fitzky’s programmes aim to drive enthusiasm in employees through fitness and well-being and promote a platform to engage and connect with work colleagues at a time when physical contact is no longer possible. The programmes, unique to Unilever Sri Lanka, also encourage employees to lead a healthy, active, and balanced lifestyle. They have been designed by the fitness service arm of Fitzky, through extensive research, to cater to the needs of Unilever’s workforce, helping them bring out their full potential.
Speaking on the partnership, Founder/ CEO of Fitzky – Shehan Adikari said “With our purpose being to encourage people to live a healthy and active lifestyle, we at Fitzky believe in making fitness accessible, affordable and available to everyone in Sri Lanka. Corporate partnerships of this nature help us come one step closer towards this goal”.
Meanwhile, Human Resources Director at Unilever Sri Lank Ananya Sabharwal said, “As a company committed to enhancing lives, we have always prioritized the health & wellbeing of our employees and consumers. We are excited to embark on this journey to maximize our employees’ physical fitness with our workout partner, Fitzky. Fitzky has brought a gymnasium to our homes with over 120 fitness classes every month, hosted by a group of well renowned coaches. With the launch of our #UMove fitness challenge, we are striving to proactively instill the habit of engaging in physical activity and movement as a part of our lifestyle. We truly believe that Health & Wellbeing are key enablers to all of us and our organization reaching its fullest potential.”
