The tables have turned for staff at a Worthing garage as they became the subjects of their very own wellbeing MOT!
Mechanics, administration staff and managers Cedar Garage Ltd were all given a free check-up by Adur & Worthing Councils as part of a drive to improve health and wellbeing in the community.
The garage, in Tarring Road, has become one of the first businesses in the local area to take part in the Councils’ workplace MOT’s programme.
After the check-up, garage staff are urging other companies to sign up for this free service which delivers real benefits to employees of all ages.
Rob Mansfield, a manager at Cedar Garage for five and a half years, said: “Everyone I have spoken to has said it was worthwhile, and they were glad they’d done it.
“It’s definitely inspired people to adjust their diet, and adjust their calorie intake from sugary drinks.
“I have personally started riding to work, I’ve cut down on smoking, I’ve cut down on coffees, I’ve had no chocolate in a month. It’s made a big difference to me and it has had a positive impact on everybody who’s had a chance to go through it.”
A Wellbeing MOT is a free resource which usually takes around 30 minutes to complete. The process evaluates a person’s health, including their hydration levels, emotional health, activity levels, lifestyle impacts, weight and internal fat.
The visits to Cedar Garage have been carried out by wellbeing advisor Tyler Slade to coincide with Men’s Health Week, which begins today (10th June 2019).
Tyler and his Wellbeing Advisor colleagues offer talks with small groups at a workplace and also hold one to one sessions. These confidential appointments allow staff to check up on their physical and mental health.
Do you know any local businesses that could do with a free visit from Tyler?
