Workplace Wellness. It’s all the rage.
But not exactly “January magazine cover” rage. Because for this little idea, we think it’s here to stay.
Workplace wellness is all about keeping employees … well. Skyrocketing health care premiums, for one, have raised eyebrows of employers looking for ways to find ways to lower medical costs and reduce fees. Not to mention solve issues of productivity and efficiency. Even in our high-tech marketplaces that can run on automated phone systems and fax machines – employees are still a main driver of income, relationships and most other things that make a business successful. And while theory after theory could be generated on how to improve all sorts of issues that come up around the office one solution is clear: keep employees healthy.
We’re bloggers who like to look into all kinds of ways to keep employees feeling good, staying fit and remaining healthy. There are some conventional ways to keep an employee healthy like health screenings, preventative therapies and shots.
However there’s a growing number of ideas out there with alternative ideas too – like evaluating office chairs and promoting healthy eating and exercise … all on company time.
Together we’ll look at the options out there to keep your workplace running well and feeling great.
