INM celebrates the launch of Ireland's Fittest Company seminar series
Independent News & Media today marked the launch 'Ireland's Fittest Company', a new series of workplace seminars backed by leading Irish health and fitness experts.
Cookbook author and model Roz Purcell, fitness expert Karl Henry, and performance psychologist Gerry Hussey will lead the nation's office workers and tune them in to the importance of nutrition, wellness and mindfulness in the workplace environment.
The new initiative by INM hopes to encourage office workers to introduce healthy practices into their hectic lives, and take part in a fun run in Dublin's Phoenix Park on October 5.
The unique plan caters for all levels of fitness and on completion of the challenges, prizes will be awarded.
Speaking at the launch of Ireland's Fittest Company, Product Manager Andrew Wade said: "Our mission is to put wellness on the agenda not just in our own workplace but in companies throughout Ireland. We spend a lot of our lives in our workplace.
"We can challenge ourselves and each other, in a friendly supportive manner, to make wellness a topic that matters in our workplace. That can be simple things like encouraging each other to take the stairs rather than the elevator; choosing to head out for a healthy lunch option; or training together for a 5km."
The programme has been rolled out already within INM and will be launched to the HR community in Ireland at the Gibson Hotel, Dublin next Tuesday August 15.
