At Tek Experts, we understand the relationship between the success of our companies and the well-being of our employees. That’s why our Giving Back program puts a focus on our people’s well-being.
Here’s why we give back and what we did to support our teams in establishing healthier habits.
Why Giving Back?
Tek’s Giving Back Program helps companies like ours to be socially responsible and accountable to themselves and the public. We’re conscious of our impact on our people, the communities that we operate in, and the environment.
Giving Back: Employee Wellness
This November we invited our teams to take part in a variety of wellness activities that are designed to foster healthy habit-forming behaviors. From mindfulness to team building, to fitness challenges.
As well as being beneficial, we also want them to be fun!
This month, we’re introducing two activities focusing on physical fitness and mental health.
The first of our November Giving Back activities is the Plank Challenge. Our employees were invited to put their core strength and stamina to the test. Each week, participants could work through a set of different types of planks with a set time that increases week by week. The aim of the challenge was to build up to a 4-minute plank! And our people showed they have got what it takes.
The second November activity was a little more relaxing with a webinar focusing on mental health entitled, “Mindfulness – The Art of Living”.
The mental health of our people has always been a top priority.
Mindfulness in the workplace can not only reduce stress levels but improve focus, decision-making abilities, mental agility, self-awareness, and increase openness to new ideas. In fact, 60% of employees experiencing anxiety in the workspace showed marked improvement upon practicing mindfulness and meditation, according to recent statistics.
Led by Tek Experts’ very own Regional Leader for APAC and Japan, Rajesh Badhwar who is also a certified Wellbeing Coach, this insightful session aimed to help participants make smarter decisions and be happier, healthier, and more efficient.
The Giving Back program is just one of the ways we take care of our teams. If you would like to know more about our culture or discover the exciting opportunities open at Tek Experts, check out our new careers site.
