Clientco has gone all healthy.

At a sales conference in the U.S.My 5th one and in the past all been booze, booze, booze and lashing of unheathy food.

But they've decided this year the company needs to go on a health kick and have kicked off a wellness program

They did a big session earlier in the week where they had some health people kick off and talk about work / live balance (of which mine is crap). Then they went on about poor diet and how people who don't have it get overweight, tired, blood pressure issues and diabetes. They were definitely looking at me.

Yesterday lunch consisted of kale soup and healthy veg & boiled chicken!!! 6am Yoga and a run at 6.30am. I love that everyone had to sign a waiver that said if they died it was not the companies fault. LOL

Watching them now run around the complex safe from my room waiting for a fried breakfast on room service.

Have other companies started on these new programs. Are these health programs just another way to increase productivity?

New fad coming to a company near you soon!

You obviously didn't have health issues yet to be so reckless about your body and mind? Nothing to be proud of if you want to reach 50 and die.

My friend just got diagnosed with atherosclerosis - hes 40yo and have a baby coming. He was eating like idiot, obese, smoking etc. Now he might live another 10 years but feels like crap.

It's a big thing in American companies now. Someone I know over there works for a company that issued all their staff with fitbits (or somesuch). If they prove a certain level of exercise the company pays a massive chunk of their health insurance.

Same at a recent UK clientco. They were a small outfit and were losing lots of days due to 'sickness' (AKA Stress). Made a 20% difference in the first 1/4.

This sort of big brother sh*t is getting out of hand

you employ people for the skills they have not for how fit they are......


surely the feminazis will have something to say about this - as they are generally obese

You know you've eaten too many pies, burgers, pizzas, fry ups, fish and chips, roast meals and cream cakes when the Americans think you're fat...

At least you can pay a homage to In Bruges, insult them and them make them run out of breath trying to chase you

Where I'm currently working the canteen is quite healthy and the firm put a lot on all this healthy living (they are American) and this week the special is vegetarian stuff. On Monday while eating (I had chips) a poor chap keeled over with a heart attack and died aged only 46 (family man with 2 young kids as well), non-smoker, non-drinker and quite fit. It does make you wonder if a fit and healthy lifestyle is actually fit and healthy...

Doesn't sound very special to me, can't see a week making any difference in any case.

Firstly vegetarian isn't necessarily healthy as it normally means lots of cheese, milk and cream OR a vegetable curry made with lots of ghee or oil. If you want a chance of healthy vegetarian food it will be most likely vegan then either taste like sh*t, not fill you up or both.



On Monday while eating (I had chips) a poor chap keeled over with a heart attack and died aged only 46 (family man with 2 young kids as well), non-smoker, non-drinker and quite fit. It does make you wonder if a fit and healthy lifestyle is actually fit and healthy...

Secondly if you have screwed genes all that living a healthy lifestyle does is give you on average 5 years longer of "healthy" life. If you are lucky you will keel over doing some exercise and die quickly, which is why there is always one or two deaths in every large marathon of people who are apparently fitness fanatics.
