Employee Wellness and Emotional Wellbeing: The Importance of Offering Programs, Promoting Active Lifestyle and Physical Fitness Rewards in the Workforce
Wellness programs and employee well-being is a critical component for companies to consider in today’s world. With rebuilding of businesses and organizational change, global issues, and work and personal stresses, it is critical to have wellness programs in place – promoting active lifestyle and offering physical fitness rewards to help support your employees’ mental and physical health. Rymax is a full-service loyalty provider that understands that employee health benefits business wealth.
Whether you are going into the office or working from home, the COVID-19 pandemic has probably changed the way you work and how you provide services to your clients. Fear and anxiety about this new disease and other strong emotions can be overwhelming, and workplace stress can lead to burnout. How you and your employees cope with these emotions can affect your well-being, the well-being of the people you care about, your workplace and overall health.
A few wellness-based strategies organizations can deploy include annual corporate flu shot clinics, smoking cessation solutions, gym membership plans, healthy office snacks and nutrition education. Onsite mediation, mental health days, and stress management help support a healthy mental state and well-being when focusing emotionally. Employers can provide financial resources to employees, tuition assistance, 401 (k) education and lunch-and learn sessions. Having team outings and activities, work celebrations, or even creating social areas in the office will add to the benefits of your program.
