Workplace wellness programs often don’t go as planned because of the way in which they are implemented. Andy Core suggests the following tips can help ensure success in this regard.
Promoting Preventive Care
As a company, try investing in vaccination for employees at work. It will always have a clear return on the investment. For example, bring the vaccination for flu to the office as part of a workplace wellness programs. This could easily benefit the company during the flu season because you have prevented a number of cases where employees are not at work because of the flu. If the health cover that your employees are getting doesn’t cover this vaccination, then pitch in by subsidizing the fees for these vaccinations, and this opens up a relationship of caring between you and your employees.
One of the reasons many employees end up turning into a vegetable, sitting in the office waiting to be paid, is that the workplace is not effective. Make an investment in a fitness facility at work. What this does is it creates more than a job for your employees. It makes the workplace a source of interaction. Fitting locker rooms for employees and so on can help establish a foundation for the wellness programs. A good example is a lunch hour walking club that offers incentives for those who participate.
These two can help establish a basis for your workplace wellness programs.
