Company holds fun Zumba session

Staff from SRG Asia Pacific and other organisations having fun at the Zumba session.

AN exciting Zumba session to reduce work stress was held at the lobby of Plaza Sentral in Kuala Lumpur.

It was organised by SRG Asia Pacific to offer staff working at Plaza Sentral a way to de-stress and have fun.

SRG Asia Pacific HR and talent acquisition senior director Vinnie Raviraj said they worked in a very dynamic environment and stress was unavoidable.

“The people should be a priority.

“Studies have shown that mental illness is up there along with diseases like cancer.

“One in three Malaysians suffer from depression and anxiety disorders. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), someone dies from suicide every 40 seconds.

“It is also worrying that suicide rates are high among youths,”

she said.

The Zumba session was held in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness month.

Vinnie said they were thankful that Plaza Sentral allowed them to hold the Zumba session at the lobby for free.

Zumba instructor Lorlyn Belmis conducted the session.

“We want to show people that wellness happens at home and the workplace,” said Vinnie.

SRG Asia Pacific chief executive officer Anoop Vettath, who joined the Zumba session, said 60% of the participants were from the company while the other 40% were from other organisations.

“I was happy to see people from other companies join in.

“During the one hour of exercise, we forgot about our jobs and just danced,” he said.
