Spearheaded by Former Employee at Firm’s London Office, Effort Seeks to Follow Professional Sports Approach by Creating Pre-conditions of Elite Performance Through Mental and Physical Support
LONDON (27 January 2020) – OTC Global Holdings (OTCGH), the leading independent commodities interdealer broker, announced today that it is partnering with Seneca, a revolutionary system of physical and mindset coaching for elite professionals designed to create a foundation of wellness to boost the performance of both the individual and the business, to pilot a first of its kind health and wellness programme to increase productivity and well-being in the workplace.
“This programme is a result of my ongoing efforts to help others discover the joys and benefits of pursuing a healthier lifestyle,” said Andy Ramage, founder of Seneca and OTCGH subsidiary company Aalpha Energy. “Having seen how improving my daily habits ultimately leads to a more productive personal and professional life while I was working at OTC Global Holdings as a broker, I am very excited to launch this programme where my quest started. Hopefully it inspires not just my former colleagues but others within the financial industry to pay attention to this long-ignored issue.”
As part of the partnership Seneca will deliver a unique in-office training programme for the brokers at the firm’s OTC Europe office in London, beginning with Ramage’s former Aalpha Energy team. The programme, which includes a pop-up gym to encourage healthy habits, seeks to help participants begin making more positive lifestyle choices that lead to increased vitality, longevity, retention and performance to potentially increase revenues. It’s delivered over eight weeks and includes a physiological and mindset component with former Westham and Scotland Captain Christain Dailly (Bsc), who runs the physiological coaching plan.
“Andy has been an inspiration to all of us at OTC Global Holdings,” said Joe Kelly, OTCGH’s president and Co-CEO. “We are looking forward to joining him in his campaign and taking on this challenge to bring fitness, both mental and physical, into the workplace. Our hope is that we can grow together as a team while also improving ourselves as individuals through this pilot programme.”
