So if sport is currently based on the proposal of individual units, then they asked for funding, which was then approved, but afterwards managed individually”, according to Dr. Nia Juliawati when interviewed by the Unpar Publication Team.
“It is possible that there are employees who are not aware of the existence of such facilities. Therefore, with a centrally managed facility, we announce that we have such facilities. Then it is a matter of whether the employees choose to join or not and when they want to, they can choose which particular ones”, she then added.
Nia said that proportionately, this fitness facility’s has attracted a lot of interest. Currently there are 300 applicants. In addition to give a sense of prosperity, this facility symbolizes the need for health.
“Health can be physical, bodily, spiritual or mental-psychological. The existence of this activity can hopefully be utilized optimally so that the employees can be fitter for work. There is a sense of happiness after exercising that enables them to work feeling in good shape condition as well as having the sense of being acknowledged by the institution”, according to Nia who currently serves as Head of the Personnel Bureau at Unpar.
