Employee Fitness Gets New Dimension with Flabuless, an iPhone App Developed by Root Info Solutions. It resulted in motivation in employees to stay fit, improved workforce engagement and improved productivity.
“A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body”
The saying is old but not at all diluted. We can see its relevance in every sphere of life. Rewardz, our Singapore-based client, adopted this very thought while conceptualizing and planning its corporate wellness program, and our iPhone app development team was fortunate to have a role in it. We built Flabuless, a native app using Swift to makes its corporate wellness program easily accessible to end-users.
Corporate Wellness: Understanding the Need
A workplace is an important place for any employee. S/he spends almost one-third of her or his life there. And, it won’t be wrong to say that performance and productivity of employees is directly linked with their well-being and fitness. The coalition of Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO), Brigham Young University and the Center for Health Research at Healthways did a litmus test to prove it. The performance of employees eating healthy diets was found to be 25% better than those who stayed on a substandard diet. Those taking five or more servings of fruit and vegetables at least four times a week were 20 percent more productive. Employees taking 30 minutes of exercise, thrice a week, were found to be further productive by 15 percent. Consistent intake of healthy food and adherence to exercise reduced workplace absenteeism by 27 percent as employees serious towards them were less prone to diseases.
