Here at Motivation we’ve also been busy in the employee wellness area. We’ve been consulting directly with Irish companies for many years and we are now taking a more direct approach to employee wellness by formulating a detailed approach for companies to help them educate their employees as to best practices in and around health and wellness.

In particular, we’ve put together a presentation, aptly titled, ‘Health & Wellbeing in the Workplace, that we are delivering free via our nationwide network of weight loss clinics.
