Team Development Program: ‘Health Issues for Office Workers’Institute of Policy Studies
An in-house training session titled ‘Health Issues for Office Workers’ was held on August 1, 2017 as part of the IPS’ team development program. The session, which was aimed at creating health awareness among the participants, was addressed by veteran medical practitioner and IPS associate Dr Tariq Khan.
Dr Khan in his address, laid great emphasis on physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health of a worker stating that all of them were essential for making a person productive and progressive whereas a lack thereof causes fatigue and depression in the individual, which eventually deprives him from reaching his maximum performance potential.
EP-IPS Khalid Rahman in his concluding remarks appreciated the speaker’s attempt of providing health awareness and stressed that most of the diseases in modern times have their roots in lifestyle changes. He said that keeping your body and soul healthy and fit is a part of ibadah in Islam. He urged everyone to strive to gain good health, not for the sake of staying fit only but also to pay gratitude to the Almighty Allah for His blessings.
