Physical fitness is essential for all employees, especially executives, says Yashish Dahiya, founder and CEO of India’s PolicyBazaar.
A triathlete who completed his first Ironman last August in Sweden, Dahiya says fitness is key to a person’s overall growth, providing energy, a positive outlook and the drive to persevere.
He recommends organizing a sports competition every year and encouraging employees to participate in athletic events outside of work. His company also brings in fitness trainers to help employees stick to their fitness and nutrition goals.
