Stay Active @ Work

  A healthy employee is an asset for the organization. Apart from personal benefit to the employee it is economically and socially productive for the employer. It boosts the image of the organization which shows care and concern towards its human resource. We intend to progress our Wellness at Workplace sessions in the following levels: Informative – where relevant data and information on the said topic and health issue is provided. Interactive – where we tend to find answers from the participants about their health problems and arrive at the best possible solutions through our interactions. Transformative – where the participant’s health consciousness is raised and they decide to make a genuine effort to change their problem health behavior. With this concept and idea of Wellness at Workplace we conduct health promotion and wellness sessions at place of work. The topics we cover and the issues we address are: Lifestyle Management for Lifestyle Disorders / Non-Communicable Diseases Yoga for healthy living Stress Management and Relaxation Exercise and Physical Activity Diet , Nutrition and Food Habits Behavior Change for Healthy Lifestyle Obesity and Overweight Management Ergonomics and Workstyle Management   Some of the workplaces where we have conducted our sessions: Administrative Staff College Of India (ASCI) for MRF Executives,  Banjara Hills, Hyderabad (2014) Wells Fargo, Raidurgam, Hyderabad...

Events Participations

Stay Active promotes and also participate in events which are health and environment promoting like marathon, cyclothon, duathlon, triathlon eco-walks and harithon.   The whole idea of promoting and participating in an event is to let the individual or group experience a sense of achievement and reward for doing a healthy activity. We use it as a great motivational strategy to change health behavior. It works as a tool to lift an individual and groups confidence level and it also raises their health and environment consciousness.     Some of the events we participated are: Hyderabad 10K Run – 2011 Hyderabad 10K Run – 2012 The Atlanta Foundation – Republic Ride-2012 The Atlanta Foundation – Freedom Ride-2012 Great Hyderabad Adventure Club – Traithlon-2012 Airtel Hyderabad Marathon – 2013 Great Hyderabad Adventure Club – Duathlon – 2013 Hyderabad 10K Run – 2013 The Atlanta Foundation – Metro Ride-2013 Pune International Marathon – 2013 Women’s Day Run – 2013 Airtel Hyderabad Marathon – 2014 Hyderabad 10K Run – 2014 HarithOn 5K Run – 2015   Some of the events we have organized and promoted: Bapu Ghat Heritage Walking and Cycling – 2014 Taramati Baradari Heritage Walking and Cycling – 2014 Golconda Fort Heritage Outdoors Activity -2015 Stay Active Village Volleyball Series – 2015   Here Event Participation and Promotion is purely on a participatory level and not at a competitive level.

We use it more as a public health benefit activity rather than activity focused for only the highly trained and...
