For executives and non-executives alike, stress, travel, long hours and excessive commitments put an individual’s overall health at risk. There is little time for meeting personal needs, including health and fitness. Too often, these needs may not be addressed until serious health problems occur. From a governance perspective, a key executive’s risk is a material consideration, as their performance is crucial to overall productivity.

Botswana organisations are amongst the most at-risk for executive ill-health. Botswana mirrors the global health trend, which demonstrates that lifestyle choices such as physical inactivity, smoking, poor nutrition and neglect of chronic life-stress, play a prominent role in the development of chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular disease.

Exec|Care is a specialist intervention that has been specifically designed around the needs of the busy modern day executive to optimise and sustain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
