AnyLinuxWork: The Intercommunication of mind and body
There is a reason why the cafeteria at AnyLinuxWork smells of healthy aroma of food every time we pass by it. There is logic behind the green tea served to all every morning. There is an objective after the regular check-ups of the physician at the headquarters. There is a rationale as to why ‘Nirvana’ is loved as much as the workstations.
AnyLinuxWork or ALW is proud to share that reason on this platform today. And that is- all work and no fitness makes an ALW employee very dull. So at AnyLinuxWork we take
care of the health of members the way we care for our family. Of course, as an IT solutions company, we cannot help exhaustive brainstorming, sedentary hours and nerve-racking work. But at AnyLinuxWork, what we certainly can help is to make efforts to balance a healthy mind with a healthy body.
The ALW philosophy of fitness revolves around a fulfilling life where each employee lives each moment of his life in the most creative, healthy and fruitful way.
Why is ALW so healthy?
• Green Morning – Employees begin their day at the office with a green tea that contributes in lowering cholesterol, and even helps in burning more calories than exercising without it.
• ‘Nutriteria’: For those who don’t bring their lunchboxes, we provide nutritious luncheon at the cafeteria.
• Right Eating: We encourage our employees to inculcate apt eating habits. For instance they have to have their meals only at the cafeteria. That way, they truly enjoy their meal without many worries unlike while eating at workstations.
• Smart meals – After right eating, smart eating i.e eating on time is equally vital. At AnyLinuxWork, we provide in-between meals, which helps curbing food cravings.
• Super foods – We also ensure that super foods like unsweetened yogurt are an essential part of the daily fare at ALW.
• Vital dropfulls – Hygienic drinking water is provided to all our employees and it is ensured that they drink at least the recommended amount of water. What keeps ALW fit?
• Regular check ups – Employees undergo a six-monthly health check-up with our in-house physician.• Yoga – Employees are encouraged to participate in yoga classes held at office space itself. They are urged to practice meditation.• Viral alerts – Prime importance is given to tips on hygiene so as to prevent viral and flu.• Recreation – At ‘Nirvana’- our recreation room- we have relaxing games like dart board, carom, chess, music system with karaoke, fitness books and study material on general fitness and well being. This helps people breathe through busy hours of the day; improves concentration and stimulates creativity.The ALW family care
Our team members practically spend close to three quarters of their waking hours with us. This is thus our obligation to facilitate the right work environment for them. And that’s how we do it:• Chart Account – Fatigue, chronic shoulder pain, lower backache when not dealt with in the initial stages can prove to be serious condition. We counter this by providing pleasant and friendly environment; desktop exercising tips through charts and also encourage them to correct their postures from time to time.
• Working clever – Unlike other IT companies, who encourage flexible timings, we at AnyLinuxWork, observe strict adherence to the policy of working on regular hours i.e. from 9:30am to 7:30pm as we understand the importance of body’s biological timing. We also make it profoundly clear to the client about our work timings.
This is the ALW family culture. It is a combination of fitness, wellness and brainstorming. By far, it has been the best thing happened to ALW. We are fit. We are smart. We are healthy.
