Today (Thursday 11th July 2019) marks the grand opening of the brand new onsite health and fitness facilities at Nestlé House. As of tomorrow, Nestlé York office and factory employees have full access, as well as those based at Nestlé’s Product Technology Centre, the global R&D headquarters for confectionery, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. The upgrade forms part of the investment revealed earlier in the year when improvements including a new employee restaurant were unveiled at the site, and forms part of Nestlé’s wider wellness strategy.
Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits. While lower blood pressure and a healthy heart are certainly perks of exercise, there’s more evidence to suggest it boosts our mental wellbeing.
June Clark, Wellbeing Manager at Nestlé UK & Ireland, said the new facilities will be a “perfect addition” to the company and added that promoting staff health is important to the organisation.
She added: “This type of facility is the natural next step in our strategy to help our employees look after their health and wellness during and around the working day. It has been the number one request from my colleagues and I am really pleased that we have been able to invest further in employee wellbeing in this way.”
The development features changing rooms, a fitness studio and wellbeing rooms, as well as refurbished toilets, upgraded heating, cooling and lighting and new pet friendly meeting areas, following the recent launch of the Nestlé’s Pets at Work scheme at the York office site. Group fitness is a great way to get a workout in without having to think or plan. Each fitness class is structured with a warm-up, a balanced workout and a cool-down and run by our fully qualified Nuffield Health personal trainers.
