An on-site fitness center for Texas Instruments will prove to be advantageous to the company as well as its employees. Studies show that employees who exercise regularly are more productive, efficient, and pleasant to work with. Texas Instruments has the capability to increase employee retention, recruitment, and revenues by investing in a fitness center through Health Fitness Corporation.
Health Fitness Corporation provides on-site fitness centers for numerous prestigious companies such as Best Buy and Federal Express. The positive relationships and results have more than qualified Health Fitness Corporation to provide Texas Instruments with a unique facility, designed to meet all of their personal needs. Among Health Fitness Corporation's services are state-of-the-art equipment, the latest healthcare products, a knowledgeable staff, specialty classes, and employee incentive programs.
The project will be divided into four phases, each with a certain purpose and timeline to achieve a specific goal.
Phase I (Research and Development) - This four month phase will involve evaluating the needs and desires of Texas Instruments' employees.
Phase II (Bidding and Structural Construction) - This five month phase involves choosing the right contractor and building the facility.
Phase III (Interior Development) - This two month phase will involve renovating the interior of the facility to meet Texas Instruments' custom desires.
Phase IV (Trial Period) - This one month process involves staffing the facility and providing training on the exercise equipment.
Health Fitness Corporation offers two standard packages. Package A is less expensive to implement, but Package B offers greater revenues. After analyzing Texas Instruments, we believe that Package B will be the most beneficial to the company. Not only will this investment improve the financial status of Texas Instruments, but it will also develop stronger employee relationships. For each dollar Texas Instruments invests in this project, they will realize a greater increase in employee productivity.
Many forward-thinking corporations are offering on-site fitness centers to their employees. Texas Instruments must join this trend or their company will be left behind in employee recruitment and retention. Health Fitness Corporation can help secure Texas Instruments leadership in the technology industry for years to come.
