WHO WILL BENEFIT?

The corporate landscape is a dynamic one, influenced by intrinsic and extrinsic factors. It’s characterised by long working hours, travel, erratic or infrequent physical activity, stress and impaired work/life balance.

Too often, significant health risks are undiagnosed or unmanaged until serious health issues occur. International research reveals that chronic diseases of lifestyle account for more than 63% of deaths worldwide and more than 40% of lost time in the workplace.

The four most relevant elements of an unhealthy lifestyle predisposing to the development of chronic diseases are:

  • Lack of regular exercise during life
  • Consumption of an unhealthy diet over many decades
  • Long-term use of alcohol and tobacco products
  • Poor wake-sleep cycles


31% of South African corporate executives present with:

  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Impaired glucose tolerance
  • A collection of cardiovascular risk factors: obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Stress related mental issues


The presence of an unhealthy lifestyle is followed by:

  • The emergence of a range of chronic diseases such as ischaemic heart disease (coronary artery disease), atherosclerosis and heart attacks.
  • The development of tobacco- and nutrition-induced cancers, stroke, renal disease, liver cirrhosis, male infertility and end-stage diabetes complications.*
  • Depression and anxiety.

*Chronic Diseases of Lifestyle Unit, Medical Research Council

The picture of physiological ill-health is exacerbated by distinct corporate phenomena, such as the portability of work tools (laptops and smartphones) which promotes longer working hours and contributes to suboptimal and interrupted sleep patterns. If left unmanaged, this results in chronic physical and mental fatigue which adversely affects workplace productivity.
