Cocoro Life, a global provider of workplace culture solutions, has launched Malaysia’s first employee care ecosystem at the Sharp-Cocoro Life Employee Appreciation Day, the inaugural event under this initiative which aims to empower organisations at large in driving greater employee wellbeing and work-life balance through a unique blend of online and on-ground benefits.
The two-day event gathered more than 500 employees, business partners, and industry professionals for an exclusive first look at the ecosystem’s myriad of lifestyle benefits.
Under this programme, companies will be able to offer their employees complimentary access to perks such as basic health checks, wellness seminars, special discounts on consumer electronics, foods and lifestyle products, as well as recreational workshops for hobbies like cooking, yoga, diffuser making, and home recycling.
“With Malaysians on average spending more than 80 per cent of our time at work or getting to our offices, Cocoro Life believes that the key to strategic talent retention is holistic employee lives and injecting joy into the workplace,” shared Ting Yang Chung, Managing Director of Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. and Cocoro Life (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
"Our Employee Care Ecosystem is designed to balance the hours with purpose — turning work into a digital market that supports Malaysians in pursuing their personal interests so that they feel uplifted, valued, and motivated to give back to their workplaces."
