Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.
Workplace wellness programs are an important part of our employees’ professional life. We need them to not only be in top mental condition, but also in good physical condition, as well. They need to be healthy and well to be able to continue doing their jobs. In line with this, many of our employees enjoy watching and playing sports. So, why not encourage health and wellness and have fun doing it by organizing sports competitions in which your employees can compete?
Sports are a great hobby because it’s fun, competitive and rewarding. This is also why many people enjoy participating in sports. If you organize a competition, many people will jump at the opportunity to play, which results in a morale boost. Add prizes for winners and runners-up to get an even bigger mood improvement, and to get them even more excited. This excitement will spread to the rest of the workplace, and even those who don’t actively participate will get excited. This will also improve their moods. Happy employees are hard-working employees.
In big organizations, it’s a certainty that at least some of your employees will be sports fanatics. Basketball, football and volleyball are a few great examples of sports you can encourage for your workplace wellness programs. You can also have darts, table tennis, even chess. Maybe you can even have e-sports like StarCraft for the younger employees. Get everyone involved for best results.
Sports competitions encourage health and fitness, and provide a morale boost for everyone in the organization. It is a great addition to your workplace wellness programs.
