Mumbai, India, August 12,
2020 – Get a Life Fitness (GALF), a corporate wellness aggregator that firmly
advocates holistic wellness among working professionals proudly announces the
onboarding of Vighnesh Shahane, MD and CEO of IDBI Federal Life Insurance as an
advisory member. Shahane has been a crusader of wellness throughout his
corporate journey and even before that, represented Mumbai in Ranji Trophy. GALF
on the other hand, promotes the significance of holistic, 360-degree wellness
and believes in vigorously practicing the same.
It is essential for employers
to look after the wellbeing of the employees and encourage them to start
adopting wellness as a lifestyle and not just look at it as a mere task to do.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made us realise how important our health is. How one
is nothing without their ability to wake up and show up fit and fine every
single day. Certain words like ‘immunity’ and ‘mental health’ have never before
had the kind of relevance that they do as of today. This is because the virus
has forced us to think ‘what if’ and all of us now believe that precaution is
most definitely better than cure. Adapting to change is an arduous process but
we have been on it trying to cope steadily as the dynamics of the industry
quickly adjust to what we call the ‘new normal’. “This ‘new normal’ has caused
many people stress and anxiety as they adjust to these unprecedented changes.
Delving into holistic wellness is essential as it will help employees to cope
with these changes by allowing them to focus on wellness on all fronts –
physical, financial, emotional, spiritual, family and social” said Shahane.
About being on board with
GALF as an advisory board member, Vighnesh Shahane spoke on the relevance of a
system like this one and what GALF brings to the table. “An online wellness
aggregator app such as GALF is the need of the hour. It offers people a host of
wellness offerings all from the safety and convenience of their homes. With
time, I’m sure that such an app will only gain in popularity and momentum.”
Further speaking on the relevance of wellness in corporates and how he looks at
it as an employer, he added, “As a leader you have to lead from the front in
every area including fitness. With more employees becoming fitness enthusiasts,
we now have a much happier, more productive organisation.”
“We see it all around us…
the focus needed on mental and physical wellness of employees is growing for
the corporates, given the ever rising stress levels. Thank you GALF for
providing that means to focus. Vighnesh is a valuable addition to our advisory
board as well, as we grow from strength to strength.” said Rajnish Virmani
– Managing Partner Positive Momentum and GALF Advisory Board Member.
The news has time and again
covered issues about C- Level leaders being under a high amount of pressure.
GALF’s curated wellness ecosystem caters to executives from different parts of
the corporate hierarchy spectrum thus making customised CEO/CXO training
modules as well. Individuals at this level are most often middle aged and the
pressure to produce outputs, the responsibility and the toll of work is at its
peak. “We design an entire ecosystem for corporates that include various
different modules for varied categories of employees, catering to their
specific needs and requirements. This approach is holistic and does not look at
only physical fitness but covers all aspects of wellbeing at large. Vighnesh’s
passion for spreading wellness is surely going to add intensity to our cause of
helping corporates” said Amit Vasistha, Founder and CEO of GALF.
