As a wellbeing company that cares deeply about the health and safety of our employees and yours, FitPros wants to acknowledge the challenges that we’re all facing right now with the spread of COVID-19. That’s why we’ve worked with our network of licensed physicians to develop a series of talks aimed at addressing the myths, facts, and proven preventative measures for the coronavirus, to help you keep your team's healthy, happy and productive.
FitPros has already begun hosting the talk series below for several clients and the feedback/response has been incredible! Check out the following Case Study.

"It demonstrated to me how incredibly large of an impact this type of activity can have to help our communities, to help transform panic into meaningful action. The most impactful thing we can do at this point, I believe, is to address the emotional toll this is having on people, particularly the children. As we all know the children are highly vulnerable to adverse childhood events that may influence their future health." -Dr. Kaveh

Resilience: Keeping Your Workforce Engaged During Disruptions The coronavirus has impacted jobs across all markets and industries. With sudden mandatory work from home policies, travel restrictions, and swings in the financial markets, your team’s workflow has likely already been disrupted.

Creating a consistent communication plan
Managing stress and anxiety
Ensuring employees have access to benefits and resources
How to mitigate fear and focus instead on the facts
Remote Time Management and Productivity Tips and Tricks A special analysis done by FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics found that there has been a major upward trend in the amount of people working remotely in the U.S. However, often times employees receive limited coaching and resources when they transition to remote work, leaving them to "fend for themselves" or "learn by trial and error." In this Health Talk employees will learn from a career coach how to remain engaged, productive, a team player, how to set up their unique space for maximum productivity, how to set boundaries with those around them, how to communicate effectively and how to ensure there is a clear divide between work and play when working from home.
Mindfulness Tools to Disconnect
In today’s culture, the constant pressure to achieve, succeed, and innovate faster is causing record-breaking incidences of burnout. Combine that with a constant feed of stimulus from technological devices, a constant stream of emails, and the increased use of social media (which has been proven to increase depression), and it’s no wonder that stress-related illnesses are on the rise. This session introduces participants to the mindfulness practices that are essential for us to begin reclaiming our energy, resilience, and happiness -- both at work and at home.
Identifying and Managing Stress This Health Talk will wake you up from the task-oriented mindset and that feeling of urgency that creates stress. Don't wait until stress has a negative impact on your health, relationships, or quality of life. Instead, start practicing a range of stress management techniques today. Participants will learn how to recognize and identify the different forms of stress, as well as tools to effectively manage stress and be present in everyday life.
