FIVE WAYS “Wellness in the Workplace” CAN BENEFIT YOUR COMPANY!
Providing wellness initiatives in the workplace has become a top priority for many employers. Even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was evident the positive impact wellness offerings had on employees. Contributing factors such as higher stress levels, a disconnect from colleagues & work-related activities, and even long-term health concerns came to forefront.
Now, beyond the expectation of providing both on-site and virtual wellness opportunities, (re)building retention, connection, and engagement within the community, alongside a healthier workplace, has become the next big part of the equation.
Here are 5 (easy) ways “Wellness in the Workplace” can benefit your company:
HEALTH CARE COSTS
With a well-rounded wellness program in place, it is only natural for companies to have healthier employees on their team.
A healthier, happier team will result in lower health care costs, minimize physical illness & disability costs, and even enable health care premiums to decrease.
FUN FACT: Did you know your company may have wellness dollars accessible to them through their health insurance provider? While many companies are budgeting funds to go towards wellness programming, you may have access to other monetary resources by simply contacting your insurance benefits specialist or account manager.
PROMOTE POSITIVITY AND HEALTHY BEHAVIORS
When Wellness becomes part of a company’s work culture, employees begin to adapt a health-conscious lifestyle to their everyday lives, even outside of the workplace! Healthy behaviors promote a positive mindset which can bring clarity, more productivity, and less distractions throughout the work day.
IMPROVE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY
Research shows that employees who have access to wellness programs will result in less sick days and burnout, promote higher engagement as a team, boost morale, and keep the positive vibes flowing.
IMPROVE EMPLOYEE RETENTION
Employees who work out together tend to stay together! It has been said that when an employee decides to leave a small to medium-sized company, one of the most common reasons is the lack of corporatesponsored programs. Statistically speaking, 9 out of 10 individuals consider what benefits are being offered when looking for a job, and more than half of millennials and Generation Z err on the side of wellness being extremely important.
IMPROVE AND SUSTAIN HIGH TEAM MORALE
A positive work environment is one that should be energizing, fulfilling, and where each member of the team feels valued and appreciated. As a team leader and/or wellness coordinator, when it comes to building a cohesive unit, what better way to do so than by bringing health and wellness to your company!
