"As we spend so much of our time at work, I consider we have responsibility to our employees to add value to their life experience in many areas including their overall wellness. Employees who enjoy physical and mental fitness or wellness, contribute more to an organisation and being part of a supportive, caring establishment builds a sense of belonging, which drives engagement."
