Healthy Lifestyle Support in the Workplace = Happy & Productive Employees
May 28, 2021
Promoting and investing in the health and well-being of employees is one of THE BEST decisions employers can make.
Motivating employees to stay fit, eat healthy, reduce stress, and engage in other healthy lifestyle practices can help improve an organization’s culture and help create a supportive environment where people want to work!
Successful workplace wellness programs benefit both employees and organizations in the following ways:
Higher job satisfaction, which means a lower turnover rate
Fewer employee absences and disability claims
Increased productivity and heightened morale
Frequent social interaction among colleagues
Building stronger department teams and office communities
Increased focus and mindfulness on work-related tasks
Creating a positive and health-focused mindset
According to Excellence Canada, leaders in training and organization certifications, studies show that participation in workplace wellness programs (like an online nutrition seminar or cooking demo!) results in higher job satisfaction and overall enjoyment versus not participating at all.
Effective workplace wellness programs are available in many different forms and strive for the achievement of improved work-life balance by including all aspects of an employee’s wellbeing; physical, social, spiritual, mental, emotional, financial and environmental.
