Home First Finance Company India Ltd on boards GALF for Holistic Wellbeing of Employees

Mumbai : HomeFirst (Home First Finance Company India Limited) has onboarded Corporate Wellness Eco-system provider GALF (Get a Life Fitness LLP) for the Holistic Wellbeing of their nearly 1000 employees PAN India. As an official wellness partner GALF will be rolling out series of technology and human based interventions aimed at helping employees deal with work-life stressors in “new normal”. HomeFirst known for its modern and flexible work environment, is touted as India’s fastest growing housing finance company in low- and middle-income groups segment. 

Wellness and well-being is a subject that has been touched upon several times recently due to the immense stress that individuals are undergoing these days while trying to adapt to the new lifestyle that the pandemic has thrown their way. This was completely unanticipated and while people are now starting to adjust to these changes it has still taken its toll on their emotional, mental and physical health causing a significant rise in anxiety, depression and even extreme action tendencies across the globe, especially among working professionals. It has become all the way more essential for corporates to look into the health of their employees and this cannot be done by simply sending them a diet plan or motivational emails. Employees need to have access to complete suite of wellness solutions that can help them look after their holistic health and so that they don’t feel isolated during this stressful time. 

Mr. Ramakrishna V., Head of Human Resources, HomeFirst said, ““At HomeFirst we believe that a happy employee is the most productive employee. Happiness comes from body, mind and emotional well-being. This was always a priority for us irrespective of work from home or office. With GALF coming on-board, our aim is to make wellness a habit for our employees. The current pandemic has given us the opportunity to fast track this and we intend to take advantage of the same.”

Mr. Amit Vasistha, Founder and CEO of GALF said, “We are delighted to partner with HomeFirst on account of employee wellness. It’s a huge misconception that wellness is only about hitting the gym or being on a diet. Wellness has a more varied spectrum that has several aspects to it; physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, social, etc. With the pandemic and the consequent new normal, health is an inexcusable priority. We at GALF help our clients celebrate wellness and embrace it as a way of life. This in turn ensures employees have an enriched lifestyle and are at their best performing self.”
