We are proud to share that The Corporate Sanctuary, a corporate member of GCNS, is a finalist for the Best Corporate Wellness Consultants award alongside Raffles Medical Group, Fitness First, and MHC Asia Healthcare in this year’s HR Vendors of the Year Awards, organised by Human Resources Magazine. The finalists were judged by a panel of over 60 HR leaders from Asia’s largest employers.
The Corporate Sanctuary was inspired by a desire to alleviate stress, fatigue and aches facing most office employees.
Founder and former banker, Xue worked long hours at the desk that resulted in chronic neck and back aches. In the long run, this adversely affected her sense of wellbeing. She would often crave a ‘quick fix’ to relieve the tension and pains but travelling out of the office for massage breaks was inconvenient and disruptive.
This was when she conceptualised the idea of bringing quick massage breaks into the office and founded The Corporate Sanctuary. Evidence by the American Psychologist Association showed that employees who received 15-min massages performed better on complicated tasks like math problems, compared to employees who received coffee breaks and naps.The Corporate Sanctuary’s licensed therapists are stationed within companies to provide office employees a 15 min recharge any day, any time, whenever needed, thereby boosting overall employee wellness.
They are committed to building a fair and inclusive society and promote the empowerment of people with disabilities (PWDs) through employment and training. In line with their core tenet of workplace integration, their PWD therapists work alongside other therapists to provide office employees with the best environment for a quick recharge. Their PWD and non-PWD buddy system facilitates understanding and mutual support.
