It is a truth universally acknowledged that an average working professional who likes the idea of fitness more than the real thing, spends thousands of rupees on fitness club memberships, dieticians etc. The less acknowledged fact is: there's no rocket science behind keeping a healthy mind and body.
Curated for the hard working and unstoppable People of Grant Thornton in India, we launched our Health and Wellness Programme, called Wellness Simplified in September 2018.
We want our people to think about fitness in a happy mind space without trivialising its importance.
Features of our Welness Simplified programme:
Wellness Calendar: We want our people to think about fitness in a happy mind space without trivialising its importance. Our monthly Wellness Calendar helps our people to adopt a healthy lifestyle with daily wellness tips.
In the zone: We have tied up with leading fitness centres pan India to bring them discounted deals on memberships.
Health camps: Continuing the practice of building a healthy workplace, we organise quarterly health camps.
Holistic Wellness stories
Everyone has a different fitness mantra. Some like to keep fit by going to the gym or playing some sport, others – like Priyanka Asthana from our People & Culture team - like taking up adventurous activities and go on treks to get their dose of cardio. Priyanka started trekking five years ago and has covered Pangarchulla Peak, Double Decker Nongriat Bridge, Rohini Bugyal, Kuari Pass, Kedar Valley trek, Chandrashila trek, and Valley of Flowers so far.
It is important to give one hour to your mental and physical health, and Ankesh Bhargava swears by it. No matter what, Ankesh makes sure he prioritises his health by taking out some time from his schedule. While for some, it is in the form of gymming, swimming or running, for Ankesh, it is in the form of lawn tennis.
