Dubai UAE: Dubai Land Department’s (DLD) Human Resources Department recently launched a one-year health programme entitled ‘Your Health is our Happiness’, in order to improve the lifestyle of its employees for the better and guarantee happiness for everyone at the organisation.

The programme, the first of its kind in Dubai Government Departments, aims to measure and promote the health of Dubai Land Department’s employees. The initiative is being carried out to encourage the adoption of an improved lifestyle and to spread positivity. This project is in line with the Government’s Council for Happiness vision, which was expressed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, who said: “Happiness and positivity in the UAE are a lifestyle, a government commitment and a spirit uniting the UAE community.”

Fatima Buhannad, Head of the Human Resources Department at Dubai Land Department, said: “We are fully aware that happy employees are more able to achieve DLD’s objectives and effectively carry out its vision. Their happiness reflects positively on the services provided to customers. With this in mind, we have developed an integrated programme that includes several initiatives related to the health and happiness of DLD’s family, and have launched awareness campaigns on lifestyle, proper nutrition and healthy daily habits. This project will achieve success by attracting a significant number of colleagues, supporting DLD’s vision to be a byword for innovation, trust and happiness, improving our health and physical fitness and encouraging all of us to adopt positive habits across all aspects of our lives.”

With the ‘Your Health is our Happiness’ programme, several services will be offered, including offering health examinations free of charge, using advanced medical technologies, with examination results remaining confidential. The initiative will also include several workshops and sessions designed to raise awareness on health and proper nutrition.

Moreover, there will be monthly sports programmes and competitions amongst employees. Colleagues who are members of Dubai sports and health clubs will be offered discounts, in order to encourage exercise and enjoy a better life free from many modern diseases, mainly obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.
