Q. Why is Corporate Health so important?

The Office Athlete - running

A. At The Office Athlete, we are aware of how much an injury can affect productivity at work, not to mention the other associated costs such as medical expenses, replacement of staff and training.

In order to work more productively, a worker needs to be feeling good. It’s as simple as that!

We can assess your work environment and provide tailored recommendations to ensure the workplace is organised correctly, as well as address the worker’s existing problems and prevent further pain and injury.

Pains and strains can often go unheeded by the busy worker and more often than not, a recurring injury can lead to a more problematic or longstanding condition.


Q. How does it work in the workplace?

A. The Office Athlete has developed a program for the workplace, which can be adapted to your requirements. It will be presented in the form of seminars with the goal to educate your staff, and help prevent injuries in the workplace.

Seminars are interactive, have practical components, and provide education.
