Health investments for a stronger organisation
A corporate training space provides several benefits:
Healthier, happier employees: Exercise is shown to reduce stress, combat fatigue, improve performance and lead to fewer workday absences.
Increased productivity: Physical activity improves attention span, accuracy and memory, resulting in increased productivity at work.
Improves work-life balance: Offering employees a place to train at work will lower the barrier to physical activity and improve work-life balance.
Attract and retain talent: You are what you attract! Health and wellness initiatives highly rank every year when professionals are asked what benefits are most important to them.
Strengthens employer-branding: Wellness is essential to the modern workplace, and people look for companies with shared values. Investing in health will strengthen your company’s employer branding.
What to think about when designing a corporate gym
Space: Start by determining the available square footage. Are you planning a smaller, more personal gym, or a larger training space? This will determine the type of equipment and design that is optimal.
Users: Consider who your employees are, what they like and what needs they have. A versatile gym that offers possibilities for users who have training habit, and well as beginners, is a good starting point.
Equipment: Durability and flexibility are key. Choose equipment that supports a variety of exercises, both strength and cardio training, and is designed to withstand heavy use environments.
Flooring: Choose gym flooring that can withstand tough usage, is easy to care for, can withstand dropped weights and barbells and minimizes noise.
Your Brand: Make it personal. Let your training space and design show off your company culture and what is important to your brand – and get your employees' ideas and input!
