Over 100,000 G4S Employees to Benefit from Tailored Yoga Program across India
In an effort to prioritize the well-being of its workforce, G4S, a prominent security solutions provider in India, has launched a comprehensive yoga program aimed at promoting physical and mental fitness among its employees. With the unique challenges faced by employees in various security and facility roles, especially those on the frontlines, G4S has enlisted the expertise of yoga specialists to curate a specific program tailored to different job roles and environments.
Yoga for Diverse Roles and Environments
G4S employees are stationed in diverse locations, each presenting its own set of challenges and risks. Some roles require alertness, responsiveness, and agility, while others demand physical stamina to work in extreme weather conditions. Recognizing the benefits of yoga, G4S has embarked on this initiative to enhance the overall fitness and well-being of its employees.
Tailored Yoga Sessions
Under the guidance of trained yoga specialists and G4S employees who are yoga professionals themselves, instructive yoga sessions were conducted to address the specific needs of the workforce. The sessions covered various aspects, including easy breathing practices, simple asanas for improved circulation, guided relaxation, and the advantages of physical and mental health. The program aimed to equip employees with effective techniques to cope with the demands of their jobs and promote relaxation and rejuvenation after a hard day’s work.
Fostering a Culture of Well-being
G4S places great emphasis on the health and safety of its employees and values their families as extended members of the G4S family. Rajeev Sharma, Country Managing Director of G4S India, highlighted the importance of supporting employees on the frontlines, stating, “We organized multiple yoga sessions to help them cope, feel relaxed, and energized after a challenging day at work. Yoga Day serves as an opportunity to promote overall well-being and encourage more people to embrace yoga as a daily practice rather than a one-time activity.”
Guided Yoga Sessions for Employees
The yoga program includes guided sessions conducted by trained yoga specialists and G4S employees who are experienced yoga professionals themselves. These sessions focus on various aspects of yoga, including breathing practices for relaxation, simple asanas to improve circulation, and guided relaxation techniques. By incorporating these practices into their daily lives, employees are equipped with effective tools to cope with the demands of their roles while promoting relaxation and rejuvenation after a hard day’s work.
