Family Sports Day to follow the successful month-long corporate wellness program

In the run up to 2nd Qatar National Sports Day on Tuesday 12 February 2013, Qatar First Investment Bank (QFIB), Qatar’s first independent Shari’ah compliant bank authorized by the QFC Regulatory Authority, organized a month-long corporate wellness program for its employees.

The month long Corporate Wellness program was launched to encourage employees to embrace a healthy and active lifestyle in the spirit of the Qatar National Sports Day.   A professional fitness consultancy firm was engaged by QFIB to develop a tailor made wellness program which comprised a series of activities including a weight loss challenge, a weekly outdoor fitness activity and nutritional and health awareness seminar.

Encouraging a commitment to health and sports among employees, Emad Mansour, CEO, QFIB said, “We join the nation in celebrating the annual Qatar National Sports Day as well as the conclusion of our Corporate Wellness Program.  The concept of Qatar National Sports Day inspired us to develop our internal Corporate Wellness Program.  The aim of this month long initiative was to encourage our employees to adopt a healthy lifestyle that combines a balanced diet and regular exercise.   Studies have proven that regular physical activity can increase motivation and improve productivity.”

To mark the second Qatar National Sports Day QFIB will host an outdoor family event that will involve a series of sports activities that will include a mini-Olympics, fitness challenge competitions, and leisure games.
