HR Focus magazine has organised yet another cutting-edge programme; HR Mix&Mingle ahead of this year’s HR Focus Conference, which is slated for October 2017.
HR Mix&Mingle brought together HR professionals to unwind, relax and engage in discussion on the theme, “HR and Wellness: My Contribution.”
This event took place on the 19th of May 2017 at the Aviation Social Centre, and was sponsored by MTN in partnership with C&J Medicare Hospital, Allure, Herbalife, Nourish Lab, Delcielo, Decathlon, First Choice Hair and Beauty, Welllink Physiotherapy Service, Starlife, Nyaho Medical Center, and Aviation Social Centre.
Participants were given experiences including eye tests, massages, skin and hair diagnoses, BMI checks, body and health assessments, healthy snacks and many assorted health products. There was also an aerobic session for all participants.
On wellness, Dr. Joyce Djabatey, the CEO of C&J Medicare Centre addressed the professionals present on “the role of HR in Championing Employee Wellness.” She highlighted how HR Managers can encourage their firms’ workers to maintain a lifestyle of good health to boost productivity in the workplace.
Mrs. Gauri Bhagwat also spoke on “Health Safety and Wellness – A Mandate for ISO Management Systems.”
LAUNCH OF HR FOCUS CONFERENCE AND AWARDS 2017
As a highlight of the event, the HR Focus Conference and Awards 2017 was launched with the call on organisations and individuals to send in their nominations to vie for any of the 20 categories that make up the awards this year. The HR Focus Conference and Awards 2017 takes place over two days: the 12th and 13th of October 2017, with an interesting mix of activities for both students and HR Professionals including the HR Forum, Career Development Session, corporate exhibitions and the HR Focus Awards,
In an interview with Dr. Mrs. Ellen Hagan, she mentioned that people, being every firm’s greatest asset must make it a priority to ensure that every worker is enjoying the best of health and is wholly well. She explained that once your workers are unwell, your business on a whole will be unwell; “a healthy workforce is a productive workforce.” She used the opportunity to call on organisations and individuals to submit their nominations for the HR Focus Awards.
The HR Mix & Mingle has set in motion the drive to keep fit and build healthy lifestyles among all workers through the HR profession.
