Workplace wellness programs are health promotions or organizational policies implemented within the work environment so as to improve health. These are growing popular as more and more organizations strive to be environmentally friendly, health wise. The general idea behind this initiative is to ensure higher productivity through happier and productive employees. Their implementation ranges from education and creating awareness, to fitness education, subsidized healthy meals and so on. The employee is a very valuable key resource of any organization and these programs help ensure their needs are provided for.
These workplace wellness programs offer companies strategic advantages in terms of costs incurred from the inefficiencies of low performing workers. This includes absenteeism, and health care costs, etc. These programs allow for the workforce to be healthy and this increases the levels of productivity in the organization. At a glance, the programs generally improve well being, as well as job satisfaction that is derived by the employee. Research has shown that the welfare of the workforce directly translates to the level of success of the firm.
Action Point for Employee
Every individual has a health risk, some greater than others, but the bottom line is we all face a certain degree of risk. Any healthy employee will stand a better chance of completing their responsibilities at work and will also be in a position to apply themselves to other aspects of their family life.
Workplace wellness programs offer a wide range of benefits to the employer and employee, and as Andy Core suggests, they play a vital role in ensuring that the organization is able to meet its full potential.
