Turn a Companies health around in 6 months

Barlows are a nationwide principal contractor who specialise in the project management of the whole contracting process. The Barlow group has just been given a contract for the build and re-fits of McDonalds at the Olympic village.


Annurca originally saw The Barlow Group with a number of individuals suffering from their current working circumstances. Due to the nature of their work a large number of employees were working away for long periods of time living off expense accounts in hotels.


Their employee`s health was being affected due to lack of exercise and poor diets as they were unaware of what they were putting in their mouth. Annurca carried out a programme of health assessments and educational workshops to help Barlows achieve their goal of a healthier workforce. Employees were encouraged to make small simple lifestyle changes which impact on both short and long term health.
