Our Health Ethos

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

Here at The Newstead Group we pay our employees to exercise at the gym… Keep reading to find out why!

Through offering a membership our employees are incentivised to allocate time in their weekly schedules to unwind and participate in gym activities. Classes our team attends range from HITT classes to Pilates and boxing classes. We believe there are multiple benefits for paying our employees to exercise at the gym.


Promotes health and wellness

Here at The Newstead Group the happiness and wellbeing of our employees is our top priority. A gym membership is a great way to incentivise our employees to attend the gym, exercise, and increase their health. While each employees may not be able to hit the gym every day, their gym membership can motivate them to maintain their physical health and wellbeing.


Enhanced company culture

Offering a gym membership to our employees promotes health and fitness, as well as growing our company culture. Encouraging employees to hit the gym together gives the team a chance to bond – whether that be at a Monday Metcon class or a Thursday Pilates class. This enhances our culture through improving teamwork and creates a community within our office.


Stress relief

Stress is a pressing issue that can have various negative effects on individuals. It causes employees to have trouble thinking clearly and distracts them from completing set tasks. A Harvard study explained that exercise reduces levels of the body's stress hormones, such as adrenalin and cortisol. Being active and exercising can significantly improve mental health and allow employees to better deal with stress.


Increased energy and productivity

Frequent exercise is proven to increase energy and productivity. A Harvard study discovered that staying active works to enhance creativity, quicker learning, sharper memory, and improved concentration. Alongside this, it works to boost serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, whilst balancing stress hormones in the body. Increasing productivity in our office overall allows our employees to focus on their goals and ensure effective task output.


Foster relationships in the community

Finally, providing a gym membership allows our team to foster relationships within our gym. Most people attend gyms local to them, and as a local Newstead brokerage it allows us to get to know and understand people who live locally.
