A medical section was incorporated into the day’s activities and was hosted by an orthopaedic surgeon who gave medical advice to QIB’s staff on good posture and healthy working conditions to avoid hazards that could be caused for a number of reasons, such as sitting In the office without movement for a prolonged period of time.

Keen on promoting physical activities among its staff members, QIB encourages its employees to embrace exercise throughout the year in view of its importance in everyone’s lives and its rewarding effects on both body and mind.
