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.
