A healthy result for motivated Saudi team
At GE Healthcare in Saudi, healthymagination is more than a philosophy. As the first site in the Middle East to win GE’s HealthAhead certification, it is also a way of life for the employees.
Getting the certification, which recognises teams for introducing healthy working practices, has not been easy. Some members have had to say goodbye to the smoking room, but, with HealthAhead’s help, many more have embraced exercise, better lifestyles and a host of tips making it a stress-free workplace.
HealthAhead is a GE initiative that promotes progress, not perfection, in striving for healthier lifestyles. To get HealthAhead site certification, GE Healthcare in Saudi was measured across 8 ‘elements’, which range from leadership initiatives, through to tobacco policy, sick days, stress, nutrition and physical exercise.
It’s a tough exercise, and this certification could not have been accomplished without the help of the HealthAhead global team, who offered close guidance through the process and supported the element owners to reach their goals. The team in Saudi is committed to sustaining and improving the programme, to create an even better environment, and to offer inspiration for other GE sites across the region.
