In collaboration with a number of partners such as clinics, health clubs, trainers, dietitians and many others, the team delivers the most comprehensive employee engagement and wellness platform in the UAE. As the partners are integrated well into the program, organizations can avail the services of each provider without having to manage them separately.

JumFit’s services include the following:
- Helping companies analyze their wellness needs.

JumFit’s corporate wellness AI powered platform aims to bring all this and more under its umbrella so that organizations can truly manage and administer every option available year round without taking the stress of engaging with different service providers. With the help of this platform, organizations will be able to access macro data (without compromising individual privacy) regarding health issues and engagement rates within the company. This will then help them chart a course of action to take towards re-engaging their employees and encouraging them towards adopting a healthier lifestyle.
With the increasing number of heart diseases, numerous cases of hypertension, diabetes and high obesity rates among adults, employee wellness has become a vital issue in today’s world, especially in the UAE. According to the data published by the International Diabetes Federation in November 2014, 1 in 5 people in the UAE are diabetic, with 60% of the population being obese. Smoking, obesity and bad lifestyle habits cause cardiovascular diseases, hypertension and heart attacks; with cardiovascular disease being the leading cause of death worldwide today. Hypertension and high blood pressure affects one in three people globally, but in most cases it might go undetected for many years due to the lack of visible symptoms. Diabetes can also go hidden for years. Being overweight at a young age can lead to diabetes years later. Early detection and awareness, healthy food, cessation of smoking, regular exercises and other lifestyle changes can help combat the risks associated with these diseases. Employers can contribute a lot towards this through wellness programs at the workplace. This is very important as healthy people usually work more productively and are more engaged as compared to those who have health issues.
Poor staff management and communication can also be the reason behind employee disengagement. A study by Gallup conducted three years ago, estimates that 74% of the workforce in the UAE is disengaged at work. The less motivated the employees are, the lower their performance levels are likely to be. Salary hikes or financial incentives alone cannot solve the problem of employee disengagement. Companies should rethink the way they manage and treat their employees so that they feel rewarded and taken care of. This does not merely involve implementing a health and fitness program. Ensuring employee wellness and engagement should be a continuous process. Each step the company takes towards achieving it should be carefully evaluated and analyzed for its effectiveness. It is this goal that JumFit helps its corporate customers achieve.
JumFit provides a holistic solution that can be evaluated from time to time with the aid of modern technology. Backed by machine learning and artificial intelligence, JumFit’s wellness solution makes sure that every company it caters to, gets its own tailor made program which is frequently evaluated and improved as per its changing demands, obtained results and feedback.
Soon after the launch of JumFit corporate wellness platform, the team will be launching the JumFit app. Both the platform and the app will be free of charge to organizations and app users.
Also, the JumFit team will be attending the Sun & Sand Sports Fitness Fest along with their diagnostics partner, Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences. Those interested can meet them there on the 4th and 5th of November, 2016 at The Palm, Skydive Dubai.
