In an ever expanding and competitive business world, the success of a corporation is almost always dependent upon the potential and wellbeing of its employees. One key contributor towards and maximizing an employee’s potential and productivity is fundamentally the ‘Physical and Mental Wellness’ of an employee.
MyDoctor, the pioneers in Sri Lanka’s Digital healthcare platforms, introduces the concept of Corporate Wellness which ensures fulfillment of all aspect of an employee’s wellbeing. This is enabled by means of proactive health monitoring and maintenance through MyDoctor’s state of the art health profiling, mobile applications (apps) and Digital health record systems.

Wellness is defined as the proper balance of the mind, body and spirit, which results in the overall wellbeing of an individual. Contrary to popular beliefs, unlike many disease conditions, wellness cannot be measured and can only be felt by an individual and reflected through his or her pattern of behavior. This resulting behavior is vital for the continued growth and success of a corporation
There are seven dimensions of wellness: Physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental and vocational wellness. Each component affects the overall health and wellbeing of the individual. An employee for instance that has poor physical health will be unable to perform well at a workplace, thus the component of vocational wellness will inevitably be affected.
With rising stress levels and multitasking among employees, the advancement in technology and automation which contributes to a sedentary lifestyles within workplaces and personal lifestyle habits such as selecting unhealthy foods, smoking and consumption of alcohol, the overall wellness of an employee is largely compromised.
It is proven via multiple researches that “The burden of non- communicable diseases such as
Heart diseases, Diabetes, Cancer and Strokes amongst employees, place a great weight upon many corporations as the wellness of many employees is affected due to a sedentary life style of many corporate employees and lack of emphasis on wellness programs”.
Screening one for derangement of key health parameters is also key concept of wellness. That is exactly why MyDoctor conducts proactive screening at its corporate client locations. It helps you to realize how healthy you are. Thereby you can take necessary life style modifications to keep your health parameters under control and proceed to treatment if necessary. MyDoctor app empower you for this concept with the new and improved feature of “Self prescribed lab tests” which can be performed even at your office.
Corporate wellness programs incorporate creative approaches in order to increase awareness, take preventative action, and provide consistent and continuous health education and assessments with feedback for employees and employers alike.
It is evident with this revolutionary concept, MyDoctor aims to increase productivity of employees, boost employee morale and motivation, reduce absenteeism and increase the ROI in organizations enabling them to attain world class standards. Wellness provides employees and individuals a holistic approach to health, thereby ensuring the success of both employee and employer. Health and Wellness not only becomes a household phenomenon but also becomes an inbuilt part of corporate culture which indeed is a pathway to success.
