ELCIES joins forces with academics, policy makers and companies to discuss the advantages of movement at work
Thursday, the 22th of June, The Department of Movement and Sports Sciences of Ghent University organized the symposium ‘werk in beweging’ (work on movement).
Diverse groups of stakeholders such as representatives from the Flemish government, academics and naturally companies like ELCIES came together to talk about ways to get employees to exercise more and how to promote the health advantages of movement in daily work.
Every employer dreams of healthier and happier employees and everyone knows that exercise and active lifestyle play a role in our lives and general wellbeing.
There are a huge number of alternatives ways for body movements and activity in workplace even during the work hours.
But the question is how do you motivate your employees to exercise? What works and what doesn’t? Those are all questions that were answered during the symposium.
Particularly ELCIES has contributed a lot to finding the right answers. Getting employees to move is part of our main contribution to a healthier lifestyle.
ELCIES believes that body and mind-transformation need more than just “recommendation”. It needs support, reward and even fun.
By signing up for ELCIES, you will be able to design your own healthy workplace strategy and employee engagement plan with the support of personal coaches.
It will motivate and encourage employees to keep track of their activity data, such as number of steps they take in a day and fun ways to exercise during and outside the working hours. Our data-analysis and artificial intelligence can detect trends and give pre-advice.
Of course, ELCIES believe in privacy. There’s nothing that gets shared in ELCIES without employee’s consent and employers are not able to see the data of an individual employee. You can even anonymously compare data between departments or other companies to stimulate a healthy competition.
The symposium was a great way to spread ELCIES’ mission and meet organizations that are equally concerned about unhealthy behavior.
This event was linked to the European Company Sports Games, which took place in the same week.
