An article in the December 2010 issue of the Harvard Business Review defines workplace wellness as an organised program that a company initiates for their employees — and sometimes their employees’ family members — to help reduce health risks, to enhance personal effectiveness, to improve quality of life and to benefit the organization’s bottom line.
The benefits are of providing a caring and supportive corporate wellbeing package to your employees is a sound strategy for helping your company develop stronger and more meaningful connections with your employees, that can lead to reducing ‘sick days’ and increasing productivity levels.
Introducing The Actives Card as the latest corporate wellbeing product which is already getting traction with local businesses in the Thames Valley area.
Would your company like to offer a new employee wellness benefit as part of your corporate wellbeing programme that helps parents save money whilst supporting their children to become more physically active?
The Actives Card is a brand-new community-driven initiative that gets kids more active through either free activity sessions and/or super savings on a wide range of physical activities including courses, events, holiday camps, sports apparel and equipment, and even active family holidays!
With 1 in 5 children now labelled as ‘obese’ before they even get to primary school, which then rises to 1 in 3 after they leave primary school, everyone (including corporate companies) has a moral obligation to try and influence and promote positive wellbeing messages for the physical and mental health benefit of our future generations.
“The Actives Card is a fantastic initiative of how corporate companies can play a big part in reversing the tide against what the World Health Organisation suggest is the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century – childhood obesity, whilst at the same time adding significant value to their corporate wellbeing programme,” Joel James, Founder of The Actives Card.
The first company to provide their staff with The Actives Card as an employee benefit is Triffle Solutions. Based in Reading, Trifle Solutions (www.triflesolutions.co.uk) has provided expert intelligent telesales and marketing for more than 15 years. It works B2B, offering dedicated telemarketing but also high-quality prospect data and telemarketing training for in-house teams.

Our team are multi and highly skilled individuals who juggle work and home life every day and we wanted to go a little extra for them. The Actives Card appealed to us, as we know that our team are advocates for getting their children up and out and keeping them active. Thank you to The Actives Team for introducing The Actives Card to us and making physical activities even more accessible,” Sabrina Bradley,
Business Development Manager.
