Importance of Wellness

Workplace wellness programs are essential, especially since obesity is on the rise. Obesity can lead to hospitalization for diseases like diabetes and arthritis. To increase productivity in the work place, employees need to be fit in order for them to execute their jobs. Wellness programs involve changing the food that is being served in the cafeterias, having workshops, health fairs and health education.

The Investment

It can take a lot of time and money to implement new eating and fitness patterns, but it is worth it. Exercise helps increase energy levels, as well as concentration levels. When employees are at their best, they will have a lot of ideas and can keep the company rising among competing companies.

Employees who are healthy are less likely to take time off work due to illnesses. Healthy employees can on medical expenses for the company. Some may argue that it is a waste of time and resources because it is not the responsibility of the company to take care of employees’ personal welfare beyond working hours. It is also possible that some employees might not want to take part in the workplace wellness programs.

In conclusion, workplace wellness programs are surely a good investment, because employees will feel that their employers really care for them on a more personal level.
