"I'm happy PwC has #FitPwC to provide an opportunity for everyone to stay fit and healthy. I joined the Get Fit Yoga class and had a good time destressing and refreshing my mind."
In the past, our wellbeing initiative focused primarily on physical health through #FitPwC. But we understand that a person's wellbeing goes beyond that. So in November 2017, we introduced #PwCWellbeing, a broader programme that reminds our people to 'Be Well, Live Well'. It covers:
During the two-day launch on 16 and 17 November, we unveiled the new intiatives under #PwCWellbeing.
Highlights of the launch:
#FitPwC is a programme designed to get our people to exercise more, as it leads to healthier, happier, and more productive individuals in the long run. It is also one of our flagship programmes since 2015. Inspired by our inaugural Fun Run in 2014, it was first launched as we wanted a year long, integrated programme (instead of just a one-off event) that could positively impact our people's lives.
We collaborated with the PwC Sports club (Kelab Sukan PwC) and the Human Capital team to run events for most of the year.
#FitPwC consists of the following, which runs from April to November:

The number of #FitPwC participants has increased over the past 2 years, a good indication that we are on track with our goal to make a positive impact on our people’s wellbeing.
To track the success of #FitPwC, we sent out a survey to all our participants, asking them if #FitPwC had helped improve their fitness, and whether it encouraged them to exercise more and lead a healthier lifestyle.
We estimate our active and unique participants to be 84 people (an increase from 45 people in FY16). Of this pool, 37% (equivalent to 31 employees) said that participating in the various programmes helped them reduce sick leave by one day a year. A day less of sick leave for 31 employees is estimated to generate about RM11,288* in savings for the firm.
We recognise we have to invest more time and effort to impact our people on a wider scale. Which is why we launched #FitPwC in our regional offices (Penang, Ipoh, Melaka, Johor Bahru) in 2017, ensuring our colleagues there can benefit from the programme too.
We also plan to take full advantage of the step count feature on our recently launched flexPoints app, by incorporating it into #FitPwC. We will share progress on the app’s usage in our FY18 reporting.

Since 2016, PwC's Partners and Directors participate in the annual marathon organised by Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur. In 2017, 20 of them ran the 10km category. In 2018, the number of leaders who participated increased, with a total of 42 partners and directors signing up - 22 people for the 10KM category and 20 people in the 5KM category. Their commitment to fitness is key to making our wellbeing initiative a reality at PwC.
