Executive and Workplace Health

The most important asset in a business is its employees as the head of the company this must be your No 1 priority.  Clear support from the CEO and senior executive will improve employee compliance and benefits that can be achieved from the introduction of the program1.

The productivity of your business is dependent on the physical and psychological health of each and every employee in your team1, 2

An employee and executive health program has been demonstrated in numerous studies to result in significant benefits to the company, especially if the leadership team provides its full support to implement the program1.

Every workplace has its own demands and stresses, which impact on worker’s health, diet and lifestyle. It is critical that an assessment is made of the demands of the workplace and how these may impact on physical and psychological health of employees and the company.

An employee health and wellness program needs to be designed to specially target the issues that are impacting on the health of its employees an the company as a whole.

This can be achieved by

  • Surveying employees on their current health concerns, exercise, diet1, work place stress3 and lifestyle behaviours

  • Conducting and comprehensive medical and health check on interested employees

  • Use this information to establish clear company and individual health priorities using specific interventions using a range of relevant health practitioners4

  • Establish measureable health outcomes to assess the success of the program

Interventions may include

  • On-site and off-site seminars or workshops on factors leading to poor health behaviours in the workplace, and as required individual consultations to address individual health concerns

  • Programs may include; encouraging and implementing appropriate and supervised exercise programs2, healthy dietary behaviors, managing stress in the workplace and stress reduction programs, healthy cooking classes, shopping tours and off-site structured health retreats

After suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome by a doctor specialised in the field, I was eventually referred Dr Gillam. With Ian's positive guidance and support, a change in diet and nutrition, I began to show the signs of a recovery within a relatively short period of time and almost fully recover from my fatigue and poor health within 12-18 months. This enabled me to return to full-time work and resume an active lifestyle. Thank you Ian

Enzo Nutraceuticals manufactures dietary supplements products, based on a patented pine bark extract, called Enzogenol, which is distributed throughout the world. We were invited by one of key supporters to arrange an after dinner speaker for a class reunion for the Singapore Medical School. As he was the organiser of the event the success of the speaker would reflect on him. We contacted Dr Ian Gillam to develop and present this talk which was to intellectually interesting to a medical audience, as well as being entertaining, which is always a challenge. Ian crafted and exceptionally well-received talk on "Extreme Sports" by drawing on his experience in Australian Rules Football by linking this to his research on oxidative stress, with some usurped clips on action in AFL football. The organiser was effusive in his praise of Ian and his talk, that was pitched at just the right level for the audience and was especially pleased with the pace and humour in the talk. We would highly recommend Ian as a speaker.
