Wellbeing
Wellbeing
The company encourages participation in the FitNut Challenge which is a programme aimed at encouraging employees to take an interest in their own health and wellbeing. The FitNut Challenge is a team-based healthy eating and exercise campaign where individual participants improve their ‘feel good factor’. It kicks off with each person having their weight, height, blood pressure and body fat ratio recorded. Over the subsequent two months they are provided with a weekly newsletter outlining a diet and exercise regime. The team or person with the greatest improvement then selects a charity to receive a cash donation.

A number of employees within Aker Solutions have participated in the "Wildhearts" annual Santa Run. Wildhearts is a charity founded principally to provide microloans and business training to those living in poverty in the developing world. Importantly they are given a hand up to start their own business and not just a hand out. Sponsorship money raised will be re-lent for years to come enabling more people every year to work their way out of poverty.
