Edge Analytics Offers 'Wellness Initiative'
Edge Analytics has recently unveiled a new Wellness Initiative to support employee wellbeing through access to health apps, exercise equipment, sports memberships and classes.
Previously, Edge employees were able to use the in-building fitness studio at Nexus and access the Leeds University Edge Gym for a variety of fitness and wellness activities. However, as most staff are continuing to work from home during the pandemic, it was decided to widen the scope of Edge Analytics’ support for employee health.
“The employees’ well-being has always been our priority. This decision has been an important step to ensure we can continue to support the team outside of work and encourage them to keep active during these challenging times.“
Martyna Jasinska, Operations Director
The new initiative has been well received by all employees. So far, employees have put the stipend towards at-home HIIT classes, gym equipment, Pilates apps, fitness trackers, and even taking up a new sport.
Kelly Eagle, Project Manager, decided to pick up an old hobby stating “I used to love rollerblading as a child and have wanted to start again for ages. Edge giving us this stipend has given me the nudge I needed and I am already loving it!”
The Wellness Initiative will reset every year to support employees’ continued and changing health and fitness needs.
