The NSRI would not be able to perform its lifesaving and water safety work if it were not for the generous support of sponsors and donors. We welcome Life Health Solutions as a Platinum Partner and thank them for taking care of the wellness of our staff and crew.
In March 2022, the NSRI welcomed its latest Platinum Partner, Life Health Solutions. “They are coming onboard as the partner to our Employee Wellness programme,” explains Stuart Moerdyk, the NSRI’s Corporate Relationship and Retail Manager.
“We were looking for a partner that could supply us with a wellness solution for our volunteer crew, volunteer and paid lifeguards and support staff,” Stuart continues. “The idea was to offer professional support for these crew members, as their work often exposes them to stressful situations. The Employee Wellness programme is an all-encompassing one that seeks to offer wellness support in all its facets.”
For the NSRI, crew and staff wellness is a priority, and finding the right partner has been long coming. “It was important enough for us to get it right, so we sought to partner with a professional entity that would ensure our volunteers and staff are all looked after and that their mental wellbeing is prioritized for better outcomes, both in the rescue environment and in their personal lives, which are naturally interconnected,” Stuart adds.
A partner in good health
As a Platinum Sponsor – and health and wellness partner – of the NSRI, Life Health Solutions is proud to contribute to saving lives in South African waters.
“This invaluable NPO’s dedication to saving lives through drowning prevention reflects our own commitment to compassion, excellence and a spirit of giving to those in our care. The NSRI is serviced by brave volunteers who put their lives at risk every day to save the lives of others, which is why we are so proud to have the opportunity to support them," says Nicole Corbin, Chief Executive Officer of Life Health Solutions.
“As part of the Employee Wellness Programme (EWP) offered to the NSRI’s trauma contact centre staff, we provide counselling services and mental health support that equip them to carry out their demanding duties. Taking care of their mental health and wellness is our top priority, ensuring that they are always physically and mentally capable of doing what they do best,” Nicole adds.
For the NSRI, the focus for 2022 is people. “We continue to invest in capital projects and our human capital to guarantee future sustainability,” says NSRI CEO Dr Cleeve Robertson. “We have invested in the wellbeing of our volunteers and staff by contracting Life Health Solutions to provide a comprehensive wellness program across the country. The programme not only provides immediate medical advice and access to care but also provides assistance across a range of life’s screwballs! With our ‘people focus’ in 2022 this initiative is a key human capital enabler,” Dr Robertson adds.
