Raleigh, N.C. (March 14, 2017) – Workplace Options, the world’s leading provider of integrated employee well-being solutions, is proud to officially partner with ImpactAfya in support of the 5-Year Comprehensive Workplace Wellness Program, which launches today.

The 5-Year Comprehensive Workplace Wellness Program is a coordinated effort from the UN Global Compact Network aimed at improving the health and well-being of working professionals across Tanzania’s private sector. The goal is to improve employee health and economic development, while also creating specific best practices for entities across the country that will improve employee well-being and promote positive cultural changes. The effort will run from 2017-2021, and is being led locally by ImpactAfya, Tanzania’s foremost corporate wellness solutions provider.

“We have a long history with ImpactAfya, and we are completely committed to supporting them as they lead the way toward a better, healthier Tanzania,” said Alan King, president and chief operating officer at Workplace Options. “Employers in that country are working to find solutions to mental health issues, work-life balance problems, non-communicable diseases, and maternity and paternity concerns that present very real, very tangible obstacles to businesses and families. We’ll be supporting ImpactAfya in any way we can through this effort, whether it’s providing expertise, insight, or resources.”
