The Wonders Of Workplace Wellness

5 Tips For Implementing A Workplace Wellness Plan 

As an employer, you spend a great deal of time, energy, and resources attempting to find a group health plan for your employees that will keep them healthy and happy. In order to lower your group health insurance costs, you must have healthier employees. The fewer doctor visits your employees make, the better. One of the best ways to encourage health is to focus on wellness in the workplace! There are a number of easy ways to implement a workplace wellness plan. Here are a few tips:

  • Get rid of the vending machines. Use the money you save to provide your employees with healthy snacks such as fruit, and nuts.
  • Provide your employees with information regarding nutrition, and encourage them to pack a lunch instead of eat out. This can help employees to lose weight, and restore any vitamin and mineral deficiencies they may be experiencing due to too many restaurant visits.
  • Replace your office chairs with exercise balls! Exercise balls force you to engage your core, and help you to expend some physical work while you sit behind a desk for 8 hours.
  • Consider offering your employees a free yoga class. Yoga can help your employees to focus on their breathing patterns, and increase their focus throughout the day.
  • Offer prizes or rewards to employees if they are able to successfully quit smoking. Smoking is one of the biggest predisposing risk factors for a number of conditions and illnesses.
