Wellness in the Workplace


Keeping up with your health will help you live a happy and fulfilling life. Implementing employee wellness programs in the workplace has recently become a staple in many corporations. Studies show that wellness programs not only keep your employees healthy and happy, they increase productivity and decrease employee turnover. There are simple things you can add to your office’s daily routine that will help you keep you and your employees’ health in check.

Here are a few ways you can keep your office healthy this fall:

1. Healthy snacks. Stock your company kitchen with healthy snacks like fresh fruit, veggie platters, or granola bars. Providing an alternative will help promote healthy eating habits. Host a company potluck once a month where employees bring in a nutritious dish.

2. Standing desk. Investing in standing desks might be what your company needs to increase energy and productivity throughout the day. Sitting all day can have harmful effects on your health. Breaking up workplace sitting with standing can help decrease fatigue.

3. Prevent illness. The best way to stay protected against illness is by staying up to date on your immunizations. Encourage everyone in your workplace to keep up with vaccinations.
