Guardians of the company's well-being

The keeper is a character from Greek mythology who guarded the (transcendent) access door to certain worlds. Today that metaphorical figure defines the people who take care of others, monitor or watch over the protection of something, and have gained increasing prominence in everyday life. Traditionally, it is a critical position in team sports, and it is becoming so in companies. Psychologists, nutritionists, sleep specialists, physical trainers and other professionals make up the team that contributes to well-being in a company.

The wellness Corporate is making its way, and Savia responds to that need of companies to take care of their employees, their main capital. For this reason, he offers segmented attention based on the needs of the company and each of its members. The model he has developed has three pillars: emotional health, nutritional health, and physical health. The reason is simple: the well-being of a person is a 360º concept, encompassing the physical and the emotional. Both feed each other, they are so connected that the origin of a physical problem can be the manifestation of an emotional one.

In the last five years there has been a change in the model in the workplace, from a pattern based on risk prevention to another focused on health promotion. The goal of the program wellness de Savia focuses on conserving that personal and collective capital that is health. Preserving it in turn helps companies retain talent and improve productivity. A few years ago, companies seeking to position themselves as corporate references incorporated plans related to nutrition or physical exercise, but their effect in reducing health risks and well-being was very limited. Savia’s model goes one step further, it is not general, it is oriented to the specific needs of each company and each of its employees.

The answer is yes, the nutritional health program focuses on physical and emotional well-being and incorporates anti-stress nutrition, as well as sports or cardiac nutrition, as well as healthy recipes. The same idea governs the other pillars of well-being, physical and emotional health.
