Treasury hosted its first men’s event aimed at raising overall awareness of how lifestyle choices affect men.

Nearly 80 men attended the session and ICAS presented a happy and healthy living presentation. The purpose of the presentation was to encourage team members to be exposed to the same experience on the topic and thereafter support each other on their journey towards a happier and healthier lifestyle.

Topics covered:

  • Food and relaxation
  • Stress Management
  • Common health problems
  • Building resilience
  • Relationships and what men want
  • How to care for yourself
  • Financial wellness – making the right choices.

Old Mutual facilitated the financial wellness for men session. It highlighted the financial mistakes some men make while young, how important it is to make the right financial decisions and what to do to ensure financial wellness. Budget priorities was discussed as well as planning for retirement. Old Mutual also offer free financial advice to all PT staff by conducting a personal financial analysis during a 1-on-1 session with a Financial Adviser.
