Adec Group Promotes Healthy Lifestyle In The Workplace

Posted by Marlon Magtira – Fri. Jun 22, 2012 5:51 pm

ADEC Group, a global provider of customized outsourcing solutions headquartered in the Philippines, continues to promote a healthy lifestyle in the workplace.

Across all ADEC Group companies, our people are our most valued assets, stated James Donovan, ADEC Group chief executive officer.

We understand the demands of the industry, and the best way for our people to succeed in a fast-paced and highly competitive sector is to live healthy, Donovan said.

An advocate of sustainable business practices, ADEC Groups production facility has a pleasant environment free from air and noise pollution.

Because of our strategic location, we ensure a comfortable workplace for our employees. We have designed our business campus so employees can leave their workstations during breaks to stretch or sit on park-style benches to relax during their free time. We also have a landscaped garden with a waterfall and koi pool to help relieve stress, said Noel Siscar, head of Employee Relations.

In addition, American Data Exchange (AMDATEX), a member of ADEC Group, promotes an active lifestyle through its annual sports fest.

We organize sports fests every year to keep the mind and body healthy. It also strengthens friendships and encourages our employees to do well in areas outside their job descriptions, said Siscar.

The theme and title of this years sports fest is Boot Camp which kicked off last summer. Among the attendees was channel manager Mariz Ariza, who has been part of AMDATEX for over nine years. As early as January, my team and other colleagues were already anticipating the sports fest and signed up for gym training or scheduled basketball and volleyball games to get in shape, she said. Sports fests really bring teams together inside and outside of the office as we vie for the championship.

Several volleyball teams from past sports fests still continue to practice together whether to up their ante in this years games, or to simply enjoy the time with friends.

We still play volleyball even if it is not a practice- or game-day, as long as theres no conflict in our schedules, said Renchie Advincula, adding that they also organize small team building activities within their respective departments because good team dynamics lessen the pressures of work. Shem Carpio, a new employee, said, Work distribution is never a problem since we get additional support when the volume of work increases.

The company also shared tips on how employees can stay healthy while working odd-hour shifts. A common problem among night-shift employees is the difficulty in getting enough sleep during the day.

To achieve a conducive environment for sleep, making the room as dark as possible is recommended. Thick curtains or solid blinds can block light coming in from the outside. Eye masks are also useful for this purpose.

Sometimes, employees may feel sluggish during their shift. To rejuvenate their bodies, they can go for a healthier yet cheaper alternativeexercise. Physical activities can have lasting and more beneficial effects than a nicotine or sugar fix.

Exercises that can be done within office premises include brisk walking, stretching, or at least 15 counts of squats during breaks.

Scheduling a workout pre-shift is more beneficial since exercise helps energize the mind and body. Night-shift employees who may find it difficult to exercise because of their work schedule can do simple exercise routines at home.

For example, using the stairs can be an effective cardiovascular workout, and common household items such as water bottles or containers can function as weights.

ADEC Group recognizes that every individual is unique and each has different ways of coping with the demands of their work. Therefore, it encourages its employees to embrace healthy practices and prevent illnesses caused by stress and unhealthy behaviors.

The company conducts year-round health and wellness programs based on recommendations from the Department of Health and the World Health Organization.

Through such programs and activities, employees learn about health risks and how to take better care of themselves, whether through exercise or improving dietary habits. And while we operate 24/6, we strive to make sure that everyone enjoys their much-needed personal or family time, said Siscar.

    Healthy Lifestyle? I usually go on a medium intensity run for 60 minutes a day, four to five days a week. In addition, I do a total of at least 150 push ups and sit ups in each work out. I don’t consume more than 1500-1600 calories a day. I eat little to no junk food, and take my vitamins. I’m 18, male, and weigh about 164, around 14 to 15 percent body fat. Do I lead a healthy lifestyle? If there are ways to improve, let me know.

      Begin by giving up fast food it is so full of fat, sugar, carbs, and all the wrong things for you. My daughter gave up soda and lost 20 pounds because it is loaded with sugar. Eat fish not fried 2 to 3 times a week, chicken 2 to 3 times a week skinless, lots of vegetables, and fruit and you will be getting there.

      The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.

      Take care bye

    What Are Some Healthy Lifestyle Changes To Make? So I’ve started drinking more water. I drink Green, White, and Chai tea. I also bought the stainless steel water bottle, and I bike for about 20-30 minutes a day. I consider these healthy lifestyle changes. I was wondering if you could provide more suggestions along these lines.

      There are 5 elements in a healthy lifestyle.

      1. food
      2. exercise
      3. sleep
      4. happiness
      5. extra healthy things

      1. Food, we don’t really know that much about nutrition, we do know a blanced diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for you. Meat is pretty good, if it is lean and not eaten too often….ideally I might eat meat once or twice a week. A good healthy diet can include some indulgences.
      2. Exercise, you should do some. Though I don’t recommend routine exercise, cycle 2 or 3 times a week, join a social sports club, eg, tennis, go hiking on weekends, swimming is one of the best exercises for the whole body. If you vary your exercise, then you will enjoy it more and do more.
      3. Sleep. A lot of evidence says if you don’t get enough sleep you will have problems, eat more, metabolise your food differently and die young.
      4. Be happy, enjoy your life. Drink dance, eat chocolate, but not all day, everyday.
      5. Then there are all the little extras. eg, green tea (there is no such things as Chai tea….chai means tea, it is an indian word derived from the chinese word Cha, meaning tea), red wine, brocollie and beetroot, lots of things than can boost your body, ginger, garlice and hundreds of other things that you can add to your diet to make things a little better.

      Don’t obsess, don’t live by a book or a routine, just be healthy.

      Being unhealthy or sick stops you doing things you want to do. Being sick when you could have avoided it is a waste of other peoples time if they have to look after you
