Work Hard & Stay Healthy! III Revitalizes My Life
Before coming on board last year, I thought working in III, a government-backed institute, would be dull. It took me by surprise when I realized that this is not at all the case. III provides a variety of social and leisure activities, including health-oriented ones, which have a great deal of support over my health management.
After working at III for several months, I got a free, thorough health check-up. And when I received my health check report, unsurprisingly a number of checked items were highlighted in red, including high cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose levels. I was overweight then because I didn't stick to healthy eating habits for a long time. Health experts always say that being overweight is a key risk factor in developing 3 highs and that's why I joined III's weight-loss plan which is designed to help employees to stay fit and healthy. III also has a series of health workshops and sports contests to help employees develop a healthier lifestyle.
Among those, I was most impressed with the aerobics and road running races. Taking part in an aerobics contest does not just reward weight loss but also prizes. I had encouraged a bunch of my colleagues to take part in the contest. Even though we did not win the first prize, I was amazed by everyone's efforts to make the contest a memorable one. Furthermore, to help employees achieve the road running goals, III hired a professional running coach to teach us how to warm up and breathe properly while running. This not only boosted my confidence in running but also helped me achieve a 9km road running goal for the first time.
Working at III is like a dream come true. III not only ensures employees have a good work environment but also helps them to develop healthy habits. This is where I would like to devote my time and energy to. By promoting employee engagement and wellbeing, III would like employees to Work Hard & Stay Healthy. You are welcome to join this big family and revitalize your life here.
We would like to look after our employees to help them maintain a work-life balance while providing a healthy, friendly and pleasant work environment that not only meets their needs but also brings work efficiency.
