Atlas Group employees were recently given the opportunity to learn more on the importance of skin care and screening during a session held in the Group’s weekly training hour.
The interactive information session was organized as part of the Atlas Wellness programme, an in-house programme dedicated to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Prof. Julian Mamo (pictured above), Head of Department Public Health within the Faculty of Medicine & Surgery led the information session. He covered various topics such as skin composition, daily skin care as well as the harsh effects of the sun and different types of skin-related cancers.
Jackie Attard Montalto, Marketing and HR Manager of Atlas Group said: “Our Wellness programme promotes an active lifestyle amongst our employees and features subsidized exercise and training facilities. The programme also encompasses information sessions on various topics relating to health, such as the one we recently organized on skin care, as well as other topics like nutrition and physical exercise.”
Earier this year, the Atlas Wellness programme introduced a health insurance upgrade for all employees, new yoga classes as well as ICAS services, a unique 24/7 support system for employees and their families, which gives them access to master’s level clinicians, local legal and financial help-lines and local face-to-face counselling.
