We have experimented with a bunch of ideas since Covid & WFH to help the team think about their health. Sitting is the new smoking, & the idea has been to nudge everyone to move.
Killing all work chats post 6pm & weekends have probably had the best ROI. 1/5 https://t.co/YsP83CrCmm
Talking to social media, Kamath said anyone is eligible to get the half-month salary as a bonus. They will only have to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 25. He also further added that the average BMI of their team is 25.3. Well, heis looking forward to the team having an average BMI of 24, and that too by August. He said, “everyone gets another 1/2 month as a bonus”. By making the statement and the official announcement regarding this new ‘fun’ health program at the company, he added further details. Well, on World Health Day, he wrote: “It’d be fun to compete with other companies”. Explaining the initiative, he further noted that the lowest average BMI or the most significant change in average BMI would win the competition.
“The winner chooses a charity everyone else contributes to. Maybe a health tech company can run the initiative”. Also, the 43-year-old CEO’s post soon got attention across social media sites. It’s called the attention of many social media users from around the globe. Some social media users who came across all cement also claimed that BMI might not be the healthiest parameter. As per then, it may not be an inclusive idea to implement. However, the CEO is defending his statement about a BMI and says it is the easiest way to start this journey. As per her mother team will be only beneficial by reducing her BMI and getting the average to 24. However, now this topic has led to a lot of discussion on several social media platforms, and the people are taking into the post’s comment section.
