- Hemas wins gold in Extra-Large Company category, H-Connect clinches gold in Medium category
Following the conclusion of the first Sri Lanka Corporate Health and Productivity Awards, the country’s leading smartphone health and fitness app, ayubo.life, applauded the success of two of its clients – Hemas Holdings Plc and H-Connect Ltd. – at the ceremony.
Beating out a highly competitive field of numerous corporate heavyweights, Hemas clinched gold in the awards’ Extra-Large Company category while H-Connect secured gold in the Medium category.
“We are thrilled that our collaborative efforts with Hemas and H-Connect, two of the country’s leading corporate entities, have been recognised on such an eminent stage. The awards presented to our clients reflect their commitment to health and wellness within the workplace as well as their willingness to take the necessary action to initiate change,” said ayubo.life COO/Director Dr. Chamila Ariyananda.
The Sri Lanka Corporate Health Productivity Awards were organised by the Chamber of Young Lankan Entrepreneurs (COYLE) in partnership with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETCO), with ayubo.life serving as its official wellness partner. The event brings together the country’s corporate community to raise awareness and encourage health and productivity management programmes at an enterprise level.
“Making the right choices where health and wellness is concerned has not been a priority for most employees in the corporate sector. Our research indicates that 35% of corporate employees have a high BMI with 47% being at risk of obesity. We understand that corporates require access to curative as well as preventive solutions instead of traditional wellness models. This has driven us to serve as principal wellness partners to Sri Lanka’s diverse corporate community. In this manner we hope to create a healthy environment for the entire corporate community,” ayubo.life Chief Operating Officer Dr. Chamila Ariyananda commented ahead of the awards.
Utilising a firm grasp of companies’ need for wellness solutions that are both curative and preventive, ayubo.life’s mobile app delivers a comprehensive guide to employees embarking on a new wellness journey. The app enables users to assess their overall health and wellness and then empowers them to take the necessary remedial action.
Furthermore, the app aids users’ wellness journey through engagement in corporate activations, connecting them to wellness experts and programs. Aside from Hemas and H-Connect, some of ayubo.life’s other notable clients include Standard Chartered Bank, Airtel, Janashakthi Insurance, the McLarens Group, London Stock Exchange Group, Sampath Bank, MAS Holdings and Hayleys Advantis.
