Retention of quality staff and OH&S in the Workplace

Do your staff look like this?

Would you like to retain your best performers?

Would you like your team to be at the top of their game?

Are you seeing regular OH&S issues with lower back and neck strain from inactivity?

Would you like a simple, unique way to create happy healthy individuals within the workplace that will reduce sick days, increase productivity and boost morale?

Skye LifeStyle can design a uniquely tailored ‘office yoga’ class specifically to suit your needs.

With this special approach, the class can be done:
• In business clothes;
• At the desk;
• In 30-45 minutes.

A traditional mat yoga class is also an option for those happy to change into casual attire.

The benefits of introducing a Skye LifeStyle ‘office yoga’ class are extensive and include:
• Providing you with an edge over your competition;
• Ensuring variety in the workplace to maintain interest from your best staff;
• Rewarding your staff by ‘giving back’.
• Skye LifeStyle ‘office yoga’ provides you with the opportunity to give health benefits to offset the long work hours and stress of their workload.

In the May 2013 edition of Law Society Journal, an interesting article was written by Elisabeth Hetterich about the retention of law practitioners, and the fact that they are leaving to explore new avenues due to the heavy time commitment demanded of them.

Current research by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) suggests that a carefully adapted set of yoga poses may reduce low-back pain and improve function. Other studies also suggest that practicing yoga might improve quality of life; reduce stress; lower heart rate and blood pressure; help relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia; and improve overall physical fitness, strength and flexibility.

In the Sydney Morning Herald Life & Style section in May 2013, more insight was shared into the inactivity of office workers. Sarah Berry published an article ‘Sitting is the new smoking’. Professor Adrian Bauman of Sydney University’s School of Public Health said, “Being sedentary for nine hours a day at the office is bad for your health whether you go home and watch television afterwards or hit the gym. It is bad whether you are morbidly obese or marathon-runner thin. It appears that what is critical and maybe even more important than going to the gym, is breaking up that sitting time.”

Is the introduction of Skye LifeStyle ‘office yoga’ your opportunity to:
• Reduce potential future financial burden from inactive and unhealthy staff?
• Improve retention rates of high quality professionals?
• Set your company apart in the market place?
• Let your employees feel valued?
