Metsimaholo Local Municipality held an Employee Wellness Day for its employees. The employees were participating in different sporting activities organised by the officials.
Employees were given the chance to test for chronic illness, such as high blood pressure and sugar diabetes. According to the Executive Mayor of Metsimaholo, Cllr Brutus Mahlaku, the day was organised with the intention of building good health consciousness amongst employees so that they can execute their day-to-day work with great enthusiasm.
“With this programme, we intend to deal with the moral of the employees, because we understand the challenges which they are faced with. What we did is, we brought all the medical aid companies and financial institutions to come and assist our employees with any challenges which they are faced with,” said Mayor Mahlaku. This pioneering programme saw many employees of the municipality being given assistance while at work and having fun at the same time.
