Medical Check-Up for the Staff of the University of Technology, Mauritius  

As Dr Anne Wilson Schaef rightly put it forward – “Good health is not something we can buy. However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account.”

An organisation’s workforce is its most important asset, so it makes sense for any organisations to do what can be done to detect illness and promote health and wellbeing. In this respect, through an initiative of Mr Anjinsen Valamootoo, the University of Technology Staff Club in Collaboration with Wellkin Hospital and La Belle Vue has organised a medical check-up for all staff as from 10.30 till 14.30 on 13th July 2017.  Tests conducted were: Blood Pressure Test, Random Glucose Test, Body Mass index, Basic Eye Check and Counselling by three dieticians.

A sound mind in a sound body is a very popular and wise saying. A person in the pink of health enjoys all the good things of life. He finds vigour and strength to do his work. He relishes the food he takes. He feels life in every limb.

Therefore, workplace health checks help to identify health problems early before they become serious enough to take a person off the job – and that’s a good thing for both company and staff. In this way, when a company places a priority on health, it motivates staff to look more closely at their lifestyle, exercise and dietary choices. This can motivate them to make better lifestyle choices and prevent future health problems. That is why the UTM Staff club has chosen to screen and educate their employees about health issues. In this way, the organisation saves money in the long run by keeping employees happy and productive.

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver”-Mahatma Gandhi
