Arcadis safeguards employee wellness with Gympass partnership

Arcadis, the leading global design and consultancy organisation for natural and built assets, has taken steps to safeguard wellness within its workforce by partnering with Gympass, the world’s largest corporate wellness platform.

The agreement gives the 3,800-strong Arcadis workforce in UK and Ireland immediate access to the Gympass platform comprising a wealth of digital wellness offerings – including apps, online sessions, live virtual classes and personal training – alongside over 2,000 gyms, studios and leisure centers across the UK. This comprehensive suite of digital options and physical fitness facilities reflects the flexible future of work by enabling employees to keep active at home, at the office and at leisure facilities.

Gympass is a core partner helping to facilitate the Arcadis well-being strategy for body and mind that includes a number of insurances for peace of mind, an Employee Assistance Program and extensive support for mental health.  “We were particularly keen to start with Gympass to ensure that we had a well-being offering that provided support to our people working from home as well as offering encouragement and help as we move out of lock down,” says Mike Wilkins, Head of Compensation and Benefits, Arcadis UK.

Gympass provides employers with a holistic and flexible wellness benefit that is aligned with the evolving needs of today’s work forces to help companies drive employee engagement, boost health and well-being and, ultimately, improve individual productivity.

“The health and well-being of our employees is a critical element of our People First culture and working with Gympass enables us to provide employees access to a broader range of options to suit their personal circumstances,” says Mike.

“Our employees face the same challenges in respect to physical activity as many others, namely finding the motivation and time to exercise,” he continues.  “Gympass provides our employees with easy access to well-being apps, online classes and a wide range of gyms, studios and leisure centers. It offers an incredible range of benefits in a flexible, value-for-money package.  During lock down, Gympass was quick to introduce a raft of online services that have really helped to engage people in activity from home. Having these options alongside access to physical activity facilities as they reopen, really does give our employees the best of both worlds.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Arcadis, which joins a number of companies that have partnered with Gympass during lock down,” says Luke Bullen, Gympass CEO UK/IE.  “At a time when many businesses looked to cut costs, Arcadis chose to invest in its employee well-being by signing up to our brand new Gympass Wellness platform enabling staff to access fitness and wellness options while working from home.  As soon as fitness facilities re-open, Arcadis employees will be ready to step into their gyms and group exercise sessions having started to feel the benefits from our physical activity and mental health apps and programming.”
