What Virgin Life Care offers employers
GIVE THE RIGHT MOTIVATION TO YOUR EMPLOYEES AND SEE THE RESULTS
Do you want your employees to improve their health and boost your company’s bottom-line? If so, use us!
As a pioneer in the industry, Virgin Life Care is developing the first South African cost-benefit model for its corporate wellness intervention. American studies already show that the benefits of corporate health improvement programmes can be tremendous. For example, improving the health of your staff results in:
The trouble is, you can’t reap the benefits of these programmes if your employees aren’t participating. Capturing and retaining members remains a huge challenge, even when evidence is everywhere supporting the positive relationship between physical activity and health.
That’s where we come in. Let the power of the Virgin brand – known around the world for excitement, innovation and understanding our consumers like no other brand – fuel higher levels of engagement and continued participation.
Virgin Life Care has the strength of one the most powerful brands in the world and an award-winning health kiosk – The HealthZone – that makes it easy for employees to capture their weight, blood pressure, body fat and calculate their BMI.
There’s no better way to stick to one’s exercise and health goals than to see that what you’re doing is working for you. With us, each employee gets free access to the HealthZone for capturing measurements and to their own personal page on our LifeZone website for tracking their progress over time.
As part of our healthy living programme, each employee also gets automatic access to a vast range of tools designed to help health and fitness goal achievement – whether it be to lose or gain weight, or simply improve overall health. These tools include:
Several South African companies’ employees have already benefited from using the HealthZone and related corporate wellness tools.
Offer Virgin Life Care to your staff and you’ll be giving your employees an incredibly fun, easy and community-driven programme to help them get healthy and stay active. We’ll give you the tools to motivate them to get out there, get moving, and get rewarded!
South Africans are set to join the global epidemic of lifestyle related diseases, with a staggering 57% of women and 29% of men in this country considered to be clinically overweight 
Nearly half of all South Africans (46%) are completely inactive, and a further 24% don’t do enough regular physical activity to "protect" themselves from these lifestyle-related conditions 
Research on our own data shows that members who are prepared or ready to have a more active lifestyle, are also significantly more likely to be ready to change their eating habits
