Wouldn’t it be nice if, while we work, we could also improve our health?
Since 2017, School of the Nations has carried out a series of wellness initiatives.
Nations’ Running Club is one of them.
Every week, members of our educational and administrative teams put on their running shoes and take on a series of aerobic exercises on the soccer field. Certified instructors carefully set up each running session and personalize routines for each participant.
The person who shows the highest commitment to the program receives an award at an end-of-year ceremony.
Besides our Running Club, the School has also promoted sessions of stretching exercises and dance classes.
In terms of health benefits, Nations Wellness Program has proven effective. Based on data from Human Resources, School staff have shown an overall improvement in health. Since the program began, the number of absences because of illness has dropped. Also, members of the educational and administrative teams understand and are more aware of their health insurance benefits.
The Nations Wellness Program aims to improve the overall health of School staff. Its strategies include helping employees increase their physical activity and reduce stress, providing information on nutrition and health, and assessing participants to uncover possible health-related issues.
