Ascendas Boosts Workplace Health

The encouraging response from the tenants motivated Ascendas to partner the Health Promotion Board (HPB) to create more comprehensive and sustainable programmes, starting with the implementation of healthy workplace ecosystems.

Ascendas will partner HPB to roll out the healthy workplace ecosystems to seven clusters – Singapore Science Park, International Business Park, Changi Business Park, Aperia, Techlink, Techpoint and Techplace. This partnership is expected to benefit approximately 35,000 workers.

Employees in these clusters can look forward to activities and programmes in the areas of obesity control, chronic disease management and mental well-being such as regular health education sessions or instructor-led exercise sessions. The content and delivery format of the health programmes at the different clusters will be tailored based on the profile, health concerns, interest and lifestyle of employees. Besides the provision of health programmes, Ascendas will also work with HPB to make healthier food choices readily available at the clusters.

Ascendas will also participate in the second season of the Million KG Challenge, HPB’s national-wide weight management initiative. Ascendas will work with HPB to organise inter-cluster challenges for seven of its clusters. The winning cluster will be determined based on the greatest average weight loss among employees with unhealthy Body Mass Index (BMI). Ascendas will reward the winning cluster with attractive prizes. The participants of the inter-cluster challenge will also be included as participants of the main Million KG Challenge, allowing them to take part in activities and be eligible for incentives offered under the Challenge.
