The health and well-being of employees is quickly becoming a top priority for numerous employers in Malta. The establishment of robust and attractive corporate wellness programmes has become staple among service-industry companies and others are looking to follow suit in order to remain competitive.

During a Linking Enterprise event, organised by the HR Committee at Atlas Healthcare, members were provided with insight into how and why corporate wellness programmes developed around the world and the reasons for their recent propagation in Malta. A wellness programme for employees goes beyond the provision of free private health insurance.

Programmes offered by employers in Malta tend to include education and awareness on the ingredients for a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, fun physical activities, flexible working arrangements, healthy snacks and drinks at the workplace as well as monetary assistance to purchase equipment or to participate in a list of approved physical and wellbeing activities.

Linking Enterprise is a series of events organised by the Malta Chambers HR Committee with an aim to expose members to ways to enhance their business operations, with particular focus on matters related to HR.

Linking Enterprise provides an opportunity to benchmark the performance of your company in a particular area, link between theory and practical applications and best-practices, share experiences, discuss common challenges and opportunities, and observe different processes, technologies and solutions.
