Corporate Health & Wellness
The economy is looking better, but it’s still not chugging along, so the logical thing to do is to continue looking for ways to cut costs.
But cutting costs by cutting staff or cutting employee benefits often means transferring the problem from one set of shoulders onto another. And if you are a small to medium-size business, these kinds of changes can have a negative impact on your bottom line.
So why not consider a different way to cut costs? You can do so by investing in the health and wellness of your employees. This is not a new concept but it has proven itself to be viable for many businesses.
It is well known that an investment in the health of your employees results in increased productivity, reduced healthcare costs, reduced absenteeism, and greater employee morale (i.e., potentially greater profits.)
As your Health and Wellness program manager, my job is to help you create a work environment that promotes the well-being of your employees and inspires them to take better care of themselves.
The program we develop will be unique just like your business and just like each employee. It is my firm belief that when a person receives individual attention, they feel that much more appreciated and inspired to take care of themselves. And this is precisely what you want to aim for: a sustainable program driven by voluntary employee participation.
While every program is different there are generally three main components that serve as a foundation for every company-wide initiative:
- Wellness activities
- On-site support
Let me give you an example.
You may have some employees who spend most of their time at a desk, some in a warehouse, and others on the road. Further some individuals want to lose weight, others simply want to learn about healthier cooking, and others need to prevent diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
We take the foundations of education, activities and support and build on each one to provide every employee with a well-rounded plan they can use at work and take home to their families.
If you are concerned about cost or how such a program would fit into your business, I can assure you that my job is to ensure every component of the initiative integrates seamlessly into your culture and your broader business needs and objectives.
Let me help you create an easy to implement, sound wellness program that will create healthier and more energetic employees while increasing your bottom line.
