Great Companies Focus on Health and Wellness

Season #3

Great companies focus on health and wellnness. It enhances employee retention and aid in the recruitment and hiring of new team members. When your team prioritizes personal health and wellness, it’s a win for everyone. They enjoy a higher quality of life, while the company itself benefits from higher productivity, lower absenteeism, and improved morale. But while some employees will be totally on board with physical fitness efforts, others may need a little coaxing. Part of your job is to ensure that wellness is built into your company culture. Here are 6 Ways that great companies Incorporate Health and Wellness into their culture 1: Only offer healthy snack options. You may have some employees who bristle if you remove candy bars from the break room or change up the vending machine selections. Because in the long run, it’s just very hard to prioritize health when there is junk food all around. 2: Initiate some physical activity. This can be as low-key as you want it to be. Maybe you arrange for on-site yoga instruction during the lunch hour. Maybe you have a formal program where anyone who wants to join can go for a walk around the building at a set time each morning. Or maybe you just want to casually get up and stroll around yourself, leading your team by example. 3: Allow some sleeping. Yes, really: Accommodating those who want to sneak off for a power nap can actually be a valuable way to let employees recharge their batteries and gear up for a stretch of fresh productivity. 4: Educate. Human resource management should bring in some guest speakers who can talk to your employees about physical fitness, and to offer some practical steps for dealing with stress in a healthy and constructive way. 5: Hold walking meetings. One more approach that I personally like: Instead of meeting around the conference table, hold brainstorming sessions outside. Get everyone up and moving around a little bit. Not only does this promote fitness, but it can generate some stronger ideas, too! 6: Be flexible. If you have employees who want to take some time to work out each day, be as lenient as you can. Because as long as they still get their work done, letting them have time for exercise can be a powerful way to show how serious you are about wellness and coordinate it with human resources. If you want to increase productivity and create a happy work enviornment focusing on health and wellness is a great place to start! About Doctor Rick Goodman Dr. Rick Goodman B.S. D.C.
