Ōtautahi – A groundbreaking new physical wellness technology called June365 has been developed by innovative Kiwi company Fisher & Paykel Technologies.
Launched today, the pilot aims to improve people’s quality of life by making it easier for people to prioritise their physical health from the comfort of their home.
NZ business giants Deloitte, Contact Energy, Farmers Mutual Group, Barfoot & Thompson, VTNZ and Fisher & Paykel are the first to jump on board and offer June365 as an employee benefit.
June365 includes a smart deck which packages up a room full of gym equipment into a compact portable device, as well as a motivating digital coach who monitors technique 20 times per second, giving real-time guidance and personalised workouts based on individual goals and progress.
The main driver for developing the technology was to develop a solution that both improves people’s quality of life and enables employers to get a real return on investment by improving productivity, engagement, and retention.
Employee expectations have changed forever, and those employers that don’t completely rethink their approach are going to find themselves in real trouble.
Dynamics like working from home, spending more sedentary time in front of our devices, and physically interacting with our colleagues less are all themes that will continue.
Traditionally resistance strength exercise has required complicated and expensive equipment, is easy to do incorrectly, and every individual needs to be motivated and engaged in a way that works for them.
Twenty employees from each business will take part in the 12-week pilot, where they will be taken on a virtual adventure challenge from Cape Reinga to Queenstown.
June365 is currently available for businesses in New Zealand and will be available for individual customers in the future.
