The Importance of Staying Well Through COVID-19
As a company, wellness is a part of our culture. But now, more than ever before, the health and well-being of the world is the only thing that matters.
A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 45 percent of adults say the pandemic has affected their mental health, up from 32 percent in early March. At Samsung, we’re focused on ways to #GetThroughThisTogether, including supporting the wellness of our employees, our partners and our consumers.
Wellness is infused in our products, our services and our workplace. Our Galaxy smartphone or Galaxy smartwatch can track your physical activity, nutrition and sleep in the palm of your hand or with a flick of your wrist. Our Samsung Health app boasts telehealth services, expert fitness coaches and an integration with Calm, the number one sleep and meditation app.
We don’t just offer our consumers opportunities to stay well, it’s a priority for our employees as well. We offer robust wellness incentives, discounts and a comprehensive benefits package designed to support physical, mental and financial wellness. In fact on Friday, April 17th the company celebrated our third annual Wellness Day, a paid holiday where we pause operations to encourage employees to focus on their well-being.
Our employees shared how they spent Wellness Day this year. Take a look below!
However you are staying well during this unprecedented time, take care of yourselves and each other.
