Huawei Technologies India has announced the launch of a wellness centre – iHealth Centre for its employees, in its sprawling campus in Bangalore. The iHealth wellness centre is an initiative of Huawei globally to promote employee’s well-being and provide immediate healthcare facilities for its employees around the world.
Huawei Technologies India has tied up with Columbia Asia Hospital to run the wellness centre, which is staffed with a doctor and a nurse, and will provide consultation, first-aid treatment, and medical emergency management for Huawei’s employees. The wellness centre is equipped with three consultation rooms with beds that also double up as treatment rooms.
Apart from providing medical treatment, the wellness centre will also run health-related campaigns such as ergonomics, health checkups, cardiac care, and diabetes periodically.
Speaking at the launch of the wellness centre, William Zhao, CEO of Huawei Technologies India, said, “Employee’s health and safety is always our priority and Huawei has established a comprehensive employee benefit system. We have invested in very good fitness and sports facilities, and encourage our staff to regularly engage in sports activities. Employees participate in various tournaments, art and cultural programmes, and have set up clubs for photography, running, dance, music, etc, which help in keeping the body and mind healthy and rejuvenated.”
The iHealth Centre was first launched in Beijing Research Centre in 2016, and has been set up in most of the R&D centres of Huawei serving 80,000 employees currently.
