Technology has made our lives easier. Instead of taking the stairs we use the elevator, instead of walking to work, we park our cars as close as we can, instead of growing our own vegetables, we get them delivered straight to our doorsteps. A technological step forward indeed, but one that also impacts our health. Being active nowadays means that you make time to exercise. But in this time-consuming world we benefit to look for ways to integrate our activity in our daily life.
So much can be gained by making small, but valuable changes in our lifestyles – not only in our personal lives, but also in our professional environments. When people engage in physical activity, they have more energy, better focus and efficiency, and a more positive self-image.
Energy Lab’s Energy@Work program helps companies set up a health and wellness plan to inform, activate and motivate all employees to live healthier lifestyles. In order to achieve a real reversal of unhealthy habits, we focus on three elements: sport and physical activity, nutrition and mental health.
Take a moment to look at this stunning video showing the result of all the hard work that Adecco Win4Youth ambassadors have gone through to prepare themselves for cycling the Col du Tourmalet.
Every year, Adecco recruits new ambassadors worldwide to give them a once in a lifetime experience. Most of them are brand new to cycling, which makes the challenge even bigger. But with the support of Energy Lab they all went the extra mile to reach their goal.
Our sport coaches first test all ambassadors to understand their starting condition. Based on these results, the coaches set up a nutrition and sporting plan which they followed up closely. In preparation for the big event, training sessions are booked to evaluate the progress of each ambassador. During this phase, we keep an eye on the condition of each individual to be sure that they train in a responsible manner.
We believe that focusing on the wellbeing of employees allows companies to thrive on an individual and corporate level.
