FIRST E&P, in continuation of its GOAL ZERO+ campaign and in support of its greatest asset- people, embarked on a health & wellness focus in the month of November.
The highlight of the health and wellness month was a ‘Walk for life, health and wellness’ by most employees in Lagos HQ. The walk with the theme ‘A healthy workforce is our greatest asset’ covered a span of about ten (10) kilometres within the Ikoyi suburb of Lagos, Nigeria.
FIRST E&P employees arrived bright and early by 6.30 am and commenced with warm-up exercises and stretches in readiness for the walk. Enthusiastic employees completed the walk and engaged in additional cool-down stretches with a licensed fitness specialist for improved muscular coordination and blood circulation.
In addition, the employee-led campaign has had other activities in the month. These include daily voluntary exercise updates from employees on a dedicated platform, various health sessions on work-life balance, the importance of mental health, and one-on-one sessions with various medical specialists – a nutritionist for improved diet & nutrition, ophthalmologists for general eye evaluations, and dentists for dental health engagements.
The health & wellness campaign supports studies that demonstrate improved individual productivity when people engage in regular physical activity.
GOAL ZERO+ is FIRST E&P’s initiative to support its business priority of NO HARM to PEOPLE, ASSETS, and ENVIRONMENT.
