Health and Wellness Ideas in the Workplace

✅Read about it here ➜

As entrepreneurs, passion and vision drive us at first to an advantage but eventually, our mental and physical limitations catch up with us. Creating a healthy workplace not only benefits employees, whether you’re the only employee or you have other people working for you, it can also help the bottom line by increasing productivity.

Encourage small changes to sedentary routines

Standing instead of sitting – Encourage your employees to break up long stretches of sitting by standing and stretching. Invest in a few standing desks to make it more convenient.

Talking instead of emailing – Urge employees to physically walk to another employee’s desk to discuss projects. Not only will this promote physical activity, but it can also help build stronger working relationships and reduce miscommunication.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator – You can burn more than 100 calories by walking up and down the stairs for 10 minutes.

Create a nutritious environment

Buy reusable water bottles – Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to improve nutrition. Even mild dehydration can decrease brain performance, memory and energy levels. Promote more water consumption by buying employees reusable water bottles, which will encourage them to drink more water and reduce their plastic water bottle waste.

Stock the office with healthy snacks – People often struggle to maintain healthy eating habits because it can be expensive and difficult to prepare nutritious meals for the workday. If your office building has vending machines loaded with unhealthy snacks, work with the landlord to replace those temptations.

Bring in a nutritionist – With so many fads diets out there, it can be difficult to know what’s healthy and what’s not. If you have the means to, bringing in a nutritionist or dietitian to meet with employees individually or in a workshop setting. An expert can answer questions, provide easy recipes, and even create individual meal plans.

Think outside the box for Global Employee Health and Fitness Month

Host an event – Encourage employee health, support a meaningful cause, and promote corporate activism by hosting an event like a kickball or softball tournament. Many organizations host 5Ks or walkathons to raise money for charities. Focusing on a specific event can help motivate your employees while improving your brand equity in the community.

Hold an office-wide fitness challenge – There’s a reason fitness challenges are so popular; they get the competitive juices flowing. Incentivize employees to be more active by creating an office-wide fitness challenge with prizes.

It’s important to realize that these changes can’t happen overnight. As we all know, habits are hard to break. As an employer, it’s important that you recognize the role you play in your employees’ well-being inside and outside of the office. Do your part to improve the health and wellness of your employees and strive to create a nutritious and healthy environment.

    We can learn a lot about employees through feedback, surveys, and other manual processes. The advent of AI has made it possible to actively learn about employees’ performance through data analytics. There is so much that technology has improved, especially in the human capital management industry. Learn more about it on our latest blog.
