NAFA first embarked on the Workplace Health Promotion & Mental Wellness Programme in 2010, which saw various activities organised for colleagues. These included annual health screening, physical activities such as Chair Yoga, Kick-boxing and K-Pop Dance, cholesterol and weight management intervention, health talks and workshops, healthy food demonstrations, etc just to name a few. In recognition of our commendable efforts in promoting a healthy workplace ecosystem and enhancing the well-being of NAFA colleagues, NAFA first received the SILVER HEALTH AWARD in December 2012.

Since then, we have continued with our efforts to plan and organise a holistic Workplace Health Promotion Programme each year, augmenting it with other new health promotion practices aimed at creating a health-promoting workplace environment. Efforts were recognised and NAFA received the Corporate Excellence Award in 2017. The award served as a motivation for the academy to continue with its best practices to achieve a healthier workplace, which will ultimately reap better organisational performance.
