Simplified Wellness Programs
Health promotion programs are one of the many ways for companies to encourage their workers to become healthier individuals. The ways that workers behave, eat, and live inside and outside of the workplace directly affects their work ethics, productivity, and mental health.
Companyís can hope that their personnel have healthy habits, but unless action is taking place and health promotion programs are created, the company isnít taking an active role in gaining healthier and more productive personnel.
While the physical attributes of an employee are often most noticeable, often overlooked is the workerís psychological health, which is just as important as physical health.
One way that organizations can include mental health in their wellness programs is to provide inexpensive alternatives or assistance with mental health and counseling services.
Stress can also be relieved by massage therapy, which is a benefit that employers can offer as an incentive.
Physical health also directly relates to psychological health; as people who are in better physical health ordinarily find that physical exercise helps to alleviate stress.
Organizations can encourage fitness by allowing employees to take short breaks to go for a walk, discounts on fitness center memberships, and informational meetings to give tips and ideas about keeping in shape.
Many corporations also offer lunchtime classes such as group exercise or yoga in order to encourage mid-day exercise. Some corporations even offer contests with prizes for personnel who lose the most weight over a reasonable amount of time.
While physical health is sometimes more obvious than mental health, mental health often has a greater effect on workers. Without wellness programs and encouragement to remain mentally healthful, workers are more likely to become stressed.
And when a staff member is stressed, burned out, or distracted by personal issues, that staff member becomes less productive and a greater financial burden on the corporation.
