Organisations are increasingly looking to workplace health programs that not only target musculoskeletal injuries, but also ones that have a broader benefit on overall organisational wellbeing, leading to tangible benefits like retaining talent, reducing absenteeism and increasing productivity.
CHARGE™ is a uniquely wholistic program extensively developed to encompass four pillars of health: injury prevention, health promotion, fitness and lifestyle. The focus on these pillars is interchangeable and all four work together to create balance and interconnectivity. They present a robust preventative approach for employers to address the risks and health profile of their employees.
This on-site healthy lifestyle program places a Workplace Health Coach(es) at the heart of your organisation to encourage, teach, monitor and engage staff on a daily basis. Effectively they take on the hands-on implementation of your Workplace Health Strategy. With a preventative approach to health, the CHARGE™ program encourages, engages, educates and empowers positive change.
CHARGE™ presents a long term, cost effective approach addressing the wholistic health needs of a workplace.
