According to McKinsey, about 62% of global employees consider mental health issues to be a top challenge during the ongoing pandemic, with a higher prevalence in developing countries and among diverse groups. Women, in particular, are more worried about workplace health and safety and mental health and well-being. It’s impressive to see that more employers are rising to the occasion where employees need mental health support, with 96% of global businesses providing additional mental health resources for their staff.

With the spotlight on the well-being of today’s always-on workforce, there is a clear case for local companies to prioritise the physical and mental health of employees. In doing so, organisations can benefit from a more motivated, productive, and resilient team of workers, ultimately leading to business growth and success.

As a first-of-its-kind fitness brand, Striide is revolutionising life on the go for busy South Africans striving to be more, achieve more, and move more. And for business owners and decision-makers looking to empower and support their workforce through targeted well-being solutions, Striide presents an ideal partnership opportunity. By enabling individuals and corporates to rent premium gym equipment on flexible contracts, the fitness and lifestyle disruptor offers an optimal solution for a workforce that’s either working from home, has returned to the office, or is moving towards a hybrid workplace.

Through Striide’s revolutionary rental model, employees and business leaders can exercise whenever they want in the comfort and safety of their own homes and offices with state-of-the-art gym equipment that caters to diverse fitness needs. This translates to striking a good balance between work, play, and physical and mental health by disconnecting from technology, carving out time for mindfulness, and reconnecting with the body. More so, businesses have the option to swap Striide gym equipment after six months without the worry of servicing and maintaining the equipment.
