Attitudes towards employee recreation (Corporate Wellness) in the transition period


Modern life has brought about very rapid changes, but it has also left man suffer the impacts that cannot be easily overcome. These impacts always have negative connotations, and the health problems are caused by the consumption of food, sedentary lifestyle, mental disorders or alcohol and drug abuse. All this has brought about the necessity of appearance of programs that revolutionized the promotion of physical exercise. There has also been an attempt to arrive at a practical knowledge of the evolution of ideas about management and organization of work and physical exercise. Surely this cannot lead to scientific predictions and legitimacy, however the intention is to attempt to identify and define ways to understand Corporate Wellness in the companies in Serbia. The most prominent representatives in Serbia were selected as representatives of specific ownership and organization models. The subject of this research is to determine attitudes of employees and management towards Corporate Wellness and their relationship, and its objective is to, based on the results acquired, determine and suggest certain improvements to personal satisfaction of employees, which would contribute to the increase of company profit, and all the segments that directly impact the individual and society. The results showed that the expected differences in attitudes between the company/the management and employees were not confirmed by the assumptions made in the hypotheses. As for the analysis of health status, it is revealed that over a third of employees are considered to have their health at risk. Nowadays, in the transition period, employees have less and less free time, so recreational activities are put as a priority. The results of analysis of attitudes towards and motives for exercising for health show that the level of awareness is high, but, unfortunately, the application in practice does not show it. Transitional flows themselves have not brought the expected rate of change with employees and management, thus everything related to Corporate Wellness and its necessity is not sufficiently clear to employees, however when viewed individually (health, concentration, interpersonal relationships, job satisfaction, life balance, etc.) the level of importance of recreation is understood.
