Top Programs and Activities To Achieve Corporate Wellness

Sep 03, 2019

When it comes to the success of a company, there are various factors to consider. One such factor is the output of the employees. This means that a company would only be able to succeed in all the different levels of business if and only if each and every employee works with loyalty and great efficiency. So, in order to ensure that the employees work well, the company would have to ensure that all the employees are safe and healthy both in body and mind. And all the corporate wellness program and activities that the company holds for achieving these falls into the category of corporate wellness.

Knowing the basics of corporate wellness

Corporate wellness is nothing but the mental and physical health of the people who work for the company. This doesn't only mean that the company would help when it comes to injuries and disease treatment. There should be an emphasis on the prevention of long-term health issues like diabetes, anxiety, etc. It is these diseases that would cause more trouble for the employees when compared to minor infections. 
When it comes to corporate wellness, there are three very important pillars. The first one is that the workers and employees should be safe and secure. There should be all measures for ensuring the safety of the employees while in the company . An accident at the workplace (corporate workplace) would be quite devastating for the employee as well as the company. Also, in case of an accident occurs, there should be all the measures to tackle the problem.

The next pillar is that of prevention. When it comes to all the different chronic diseases like diabetes and depression, the only thing that can be done is to prevent them. Once a person gets them, then curing would be quite difficult and even impossible in many cases. So, the company should take enough measures to ensure that such situations are prevented at all costs.

The third pillar is to tackle bad health once it has occurred. This means that the company should have the means to ensure that all employees are insured. This is to prevent financial trouble for one of the employees during the treatment of a health issue. Once this is achieved, the employees would be able to work with the tension of any financial struggle in case a health problem arises.

Conducting entertainment programs

Just like the physical health of the employees, the mental state is also equally important. So, if you are the manager or the human resources officer of a company, then do make sure that there are entertainment programs held for the employees every now and then. These would include music concerts, stand-up comedy shows, etc. In fact, almost anything that the employees would find fun can be selected as entertainment.  But keep in mind that no employees can be offended in any manner from the program. Also, there shouldn’t be any unrest between the employees as well.

Fitness training classes

Staying physically fit is quite important in every company. There are chances that the employees might become obese and unfit, especially if the work that they do is not a very physical one. In such cases, it would be ideal to hold fitness training programs every now and then. There should be an efficient trainer and there should be a studio or a gym for training.

Once the training is over, the employees would require a place to practice what they have learned. And for this, there should be a gym at the company office. If this is not feasible, then make sure that you draw a contract with a nearby good-looking gym or fitness center so that your employees would be able to exercise at a place.
Even Yoga can be chosen as a fitness program by the company. Here again, the company would require a yoga teacher and also a good studio to teach the employees. Also, the advantage of Yoga is that it is something that is good for both the body and the mind alike. Various mental illnesses like anxiety, stress (yoga to relieve stress) , depression, etc. can also be cured by training and practicing yoga.

Keep the office cafeteria healthy

Most of the employees at a company would eat or drink from the office cafeteria. Hence it is necessary to ensure that the things that are sold at the cafeteria are healthy. In fact, there should be a blend of healthy and tasty. So, when the cafeteria or the canteen is leased to an outside agency or group make sure that they would not compromise the health aspect. Ensure that you test the food items being sold there every now and then.  Also, provide healthy food items at lower prices in order to encourage the employees to consume them.

Hire an expert

In most companies, corporate wellness is a section that is handled by the human resources department. This department should have a separate leader and officer who is an expert in the field. So, it would be better to hire a health care specialist in order to devise and execute plans for the wellness of the employees at the company. This expert may work under the supervision of the human resources officer so that nothing goes out of line.

A treatment centers

In most companies, there would be a first aid room. But in order to be efficient, there should be a primary treatment center in the company, especially if the company has a large workforce. There should also be a trained nurse or caretaker in the company in order to treat any employee if there is any kind of emergency. Also, there should be an emergency response team who would have to take an employee to the nearest hospital or clinic if some sort of accident takes place in the company.
