Managing Changing Times
Keeping key personnel healthy - a cost effective strategy as used by Victorinox
Getting people to take command of their own health improvement
Key personnel are the most important assets in any business. If such a person falls sick the cost to the business can be expensive. Therefore it is a cost effective strategy to encourage such personnel to adopt a healthly lifestyle which is a proven long-term way of preventing ill health. Such an approach needs to address whatever daily activities the person is engaged in. This would include activities and actions performed both within the work setting and also away from work – if a person bends over in a harmful way, for example, they can seriously damage their back at any time.

“What is actually done varies from one person to another, depending on what kind of misuse the diagnostic exploration reveals....we already notice, with growing amazement, very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness and mental resilience against outside pressures, and also in such a refined skill as playing a stringed instrument.“
Prof.. N. Tinbergen FRS, from his Nobel Prize oration partly devoted to the F.M.Alexander Technique.
