Health Month at Smartmatic Venezuela



I would like to use this space to share some fresh information with the members of the Smartmatic family about the activities taking place at our Venezuelan offices this September.  I am sure the schedule we have prepared will be beneficial to most, and will strengthen the values that we in HR try to instill into the whole company. 

It is important to highlight that we understand health from a holistically definition, comprising physical, mental and societal well-being, and not restricted to the absence of illnesses or health conditions. 

To cultivate a kind of integral health which covers these three dimensions, we will be carrying out the following activities during “Health Month”:

·         Lab tests and medical checkups Free lab tests and checkupswill be held in our offices, available to all employees.  This convenience will  spare us the trouble of booking appointments and having to leave the office. saving time and money to all of us. 

·         Safety and Emergency Procedures Workshops will prepare us to better face an emergency or an unexpected situation, which can save lives.  This is why we are setting up basic talks on workplace security, and workshops on emergency procedures and natural disasters.  

·         Sporting activities Everyone knows that exercising is key for physical health.  However, sporting activities such as Yoga, Pilates, Samba lessons,  Street Soccer and Kicking Ball matches go even further since they promote staff integration.  Spending time with colleagues out of the office is key to cultivating high-performing teams. 

We would like to finish by saying we are a family, and we can all contribute every day toward each other’s well-being, not only by spending time with our colleagues but also by participating in activities that will surely be good to our bodies, minds, and workplace relationships.
