Aging employees, higher health costs and disengaged employees can cripple an organization’s bottom line. Why not mitigate these risks by providing a workplace wellness programs?
Employers are getting it – sort of. Most believe in the concept of keeping their employees healthy because it just makes sense. Not only does paying attention to this make a difference in the lives of the people who are the most valuable asset to a company, but there are also many benefits to the bottom line – lowered health claims, improved energy and morale, lowered sickness, and improved productivity.
Typical employee engagement wellness programs may include conducting an annual health fair, inviting a speaker to do the odd lunch n’ learn, or even providing gym or fitness subsidies. These initiatives are certainly good starting points, but are they worked into the overall objectives of the organization? Will companies really get the biggest bang for their buck? A one-size fits all corporate wellness programs will yield disappointing engagement rates.
