Health Day in Foxconn
15. April 2018
Health checks, massages, but especially fruit and vegetables of every kind were the main attractions of the Health Day that took place in mid-May for employees of Foxconn Slovakia.
The measurements of the health state focused on cholesterol and glucose in the blood, the percentage of muscle and body fat in the body, the determination of the correct BMI index or blood pressure and pulse rate. Our colleagues also had an opportunity to check the blood oxygenation or CO content in the lungs, which is a useful signal especially for smokers. There was also an examination of the function of the internal organs or skin hydration, which attracted mainly women.
The Health Day was accompanied by the Healthy Diet Week
Fruit and vegetables were successful as well, whether in their original form, or as smoothies, fresh salad, dried fruit or healthy cakes and sticks.
Accompanying activity of the Health Day was a healthy week in the company’s cantine, which included fresh salads prepared directly before the guest or grilled vegetable offer.
The event had a very positive feedback from colleagues, and it was great to find out that the interest of colleagues in health issues is very high. Physicians and nutrition counselors who consulted were surprised by the balanced number of male and female participation, as they were more likely to meet women’s interest in their practice.
