AFT's core: employees

Employee Health & Wellness

On the first Friday in June, AFT Finland closed the Varkaus plant so that its employees could join the Helsinki team for a day of lakeside fun and relaxation.  Morning activities included stretching and yoga, followed by a more action packed afternoon of Frisbee golf, petanque (bocce ball), adventure park and floorball.  From there it was off to a nice spa, and an evening of dinner and dancing capped off the event.  Throughout the day, advice and tips were shared on how to live a healthy lifestyle. Not only was it a fun way for the company to show its thanks and appreciation, it was also a valuable opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of employee health and wellbeing both in and outside the workplace.
