Transguard Group Pilots Health Seminars for its Site-Based Employees


More than 1,000 employees of the business solutions provider have attended the free sessions since the programme’s launch earlier this year

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Leading business solutions provider Transguard Group has revealed that a new health initiative aimed at proactively educating its site-based employees has so far impacted more than 1,000 employees since its inception in May 2021.

“Caring for our healthy, happy workforce is the cornerstone of our success,” said Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “It has been exceptionally gratifying to see how well the sessions are being received.”

The concept is simple but effective: A team of Transguard medical professionals holds regular seminars on a wide range of topics in the company’s accommodations, including how to manage lower back pain and gastric problems as well as common health complaints for both males and females, as well as other common issues. The free sessions have so far been held in four of Transguard’s largest accommodations and generally last for about an hour, including a question and answer session that allows attendees to pursue additional details on the topics covered. Free eye check-ups are also on offer.

So far, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from both employees and senior management: “These sessions give our employees immediate access to information they may not know how to seek out on their own,” Ward points out, adding that “we’re proud that we’ve taken the initiative to proactively provide these opportunities as yet another demonstration that we are fully dedicated to upholding our duty of care for our employees.”

In addition to future health seminars being planned across other Transguard accommodations, a second dedicated medical facility in Jebel Ali is expected to open before the end of the year.
