The COVID-19 outbreak has left Dubai’s health and wellness industry desperate for business and struggling to stay afloat. As wellness facilities begin to open their doors, their road to recovery is hindered by capacity limitations enforced by social distancing rules and regulations. In search for additional revenue streams, many of these struggling businesses are shifting their classes to the virtual world and turning to streaming options, riding the current online wellness wave.
The newly-launched HR Tech Startup, Workfam, designed to boost employee engagement and wellness, provides a platform for the health and wellness industry to promote their services, target corporate clients and boost footfall and occupancy. With this industry experiencing a drastic decline in sales, Workfam is offering free-of-charge access to their services to support the industry in getting back on track.

With Workfam, businesses in the wellness sector can significantly reduce costs associated with marketing, lead conversion, and operations, supporting them with their COVID-19 recovery plan. From Yoga to Cooking Classes, Painting to Public Speaking, Workfam’s platform supports businesses of all shapes and sizes, and brings individuals of all interests together. Corporate companies and their employees can browse through a database of online wellness services to book, schedule and plan an online wellness day or week.
To date, Workfam has partnered up with large corporations such as Majid Al Futtaim and over 70 wellness facilities, offering more than 200 corporate wellness discounts to all employees. Businesses can create custom corporate offerings with dynamic discounts based on popular days and peak hours.
