5 Wellness Tips To improve employee wellness at Work
Employee wellness is an important, but often forgotten about aspect of building a great company culture.
If employees are sluggish and have no energy, they won’t be very much fun to be around.
On the other hand, if employees are healthy, they’ll have more energy, which will lead to more productive employees. As a business leader, it makes sense to invest in employee wellness.
One of the other big advantages of investing in employee wellness, is that it shows your employees that you genuinely care about them as people. That realization alone is often enough to improve employee engagement.
People overly complicate employee wellness, it’s really quite simple – eat less, move more.
Here are 5 simple ways to increase employee wellness.
- Promote Work-Life Balance
This is by far the most important wellness tip for you to consider.
Not only is it free, but it will have the biggest impact for employees. There are so many issues that come from not having a good work-life balance, stress and burnout being the two biggest ones.
Employees won’t be productive if they work too long, the research is very clear about this.
Let employees know that they can be free in how they choose to manage their time. More than anything, it’s about showing employees that you respect them enough and trust them enough to make their own decisions.
- Subsidize Gym Memberships
This is a relatively easy one to do, and although it costs a bit of money, the ROI of having healthy and more productive employees is totally worth it.
You can most likely partner up with a nearby gym and get a group discount if you refer enough people.
- Create A Wellness Committee
There are two benefits to this one.
The first, is that you’ll be getting some great wellness initiatives implemented in your company, and the second benefit is that you’ll be empowering employees to lead the charge.
By giving employees that responsibility, you’ll be telling them that you value their opinions. That alone will get them more engaged at work.
- Provide Healthy Lunches
If you can provide healthy options for employees to eat, you’ll be helping them out a lot.
Many employees don’t have the time or energy to make a healthy lunch for themselves, so they’ll end up going to a nearby restaurant with a lot of unhealthy options.
Whatever you can do to make this process easier will be appreciated by employees. At our company, we have catered lunches delivered to us 3 days a week.
We all split the bill, so it ends up being much cheaper than if we were to buy this type of food normally, and it helps remove the hassle of having to prepare a lunch.
I would also recommend offering healthy snacks in the kitchen at all times. Employees are going to snack anyways, so you might as well help them by providing healthier options.
- Have Walking Meetings
Sitting all day has been shown to be very bad for your health.
What you can do to help combat some of the negative effects, is to get employees up and moving as much as possible.Walking meetings have been proven to be great for our creativity and innovation. You can also do stand-up meetings and take phone calls while standing up and walking around.
Anything you can do to help employees move more will make them healthier, happier, and more productive at work.
