McMahon Services has launched an internal health and wellbeing program – Health Kick – to kick-start a health overhaul across the company.
We know that the core of our business is our people, so this program was aimed at investing in our greatest asset by educating our staff about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.
McMahon Services believe that we can work smarter, wiser and more efficiently by improving the health and wellbeing of our personnel.
We also have an ageing workforce, with a majority of males, so it was time to start tackling some key health issues.
- It’s a Balancing Act – eat a balanced diet
- Keep on Moving – exercise at least 30 minutes a day
- Speak Out – speak up without fear or favour
- Quit to Get Ahead – stop smoking, or atleast cut down
- Skin Matters – protect yourself against harmful UV rays
- Hydrate Mate – remember to keep hydrated
Health Kick is not about pointing the finger; it is simply about educating our staff about healthy living.
The Program has sparked a new chapter for McMahon Services, as we continue to strive for a safe workplace, where workmates can work safely alongside their workmates.
On 23 August 2012, over 220 Adelaide-based personnel were geared up at AAMI Stadium, ready to kick-off the program.
After an interactive presentation from our in-house nutritionist, Themis Chryssidis, the launch heated up with live cooking demonstrations from Out of the Blue celebrity chef Michael Angelakis and Masterchef AllStars winner, Callum Hann.
The audience also heard touching stories from The Founder and CEO of The Jodi Lee Foundation, Nick Lee, and TV personality Graeme Goodings, about their battles with bowel cancer and the importance of early screening and detection.
The “First 18” starting line-up was also revealed – 18 employees who will act as ambassadors and a support crew for the program.
