Increase Employees' Engagement Through Government Funding

Do you know that Health Promotion Board (HPB) is promoting free fitness classes for the public and funded health programs for corporate? In this blog post, I will be sharing with you 3 initiatives by HPB that can help you as an individual or your company get into a healthier lifestyle with minimal to zero cost.

1. SME Health+ (For Companies)

70%

SME Health+ is a HPB initiative to promote healthier living for employees by co-funding up to 70% off corporate health programs. The funding covers these 4 segments:

(a) Health Screening

(b) Physical Activities

(c) Nutrition Talks

(d) Mental Well-being Workshops

We are an approved vendor under this program and we offer a range of physical activities, nutrition talks, and mental well-being workshops.

Eligibility: Company needs to be registered under ACRA and have a Unique Entity Number (UEN) and has less than 200 employees OR less than 100 million revenue turnover.

Cost: If you meet the requirements, our physical activity classes can be as low as just $70 per session/hour (no maximum pax), followed by $125 for a 1-hr nutrition talk and $200 for a 1-hr mental well-being workshop.

Location: Can be conducted in the comforts of your own office if there is space available.

Expiry: 31st December 2019

2. Fitness @ Work (For Individuals/Companies)

This initiative benefits those working in the CBD area as there will be FREE fitness classes held at a number of locations open to the public every weekday. You may just need to step out of your office building to join these workouts as they are held at building lobbies or in open areas nearby. This would be the best chance to pull your team or colleagues along to have a good bonding session together!

Fitness @ Work can get quite crowded at times and can even go up to 100 pax per class. If your company is willing to invest a little, I would still recommend your company to go for the SME Health+ program as it would be in a more private setting just for you and your team and be able to receive quality attention from the instructor.

Cost: Free

3. Workplace Alliance for Health Scheme (For Companies)

This is another funding that is similar to SME Health+ but is only offered to MNCs and not SMEs. There are 2 types of packages available:
