Corporate wellness programmes are becoming more of a priority for companies because the link between health and productivity is undeniable. Are you getting the most out of yours?

Businesses worldwide are realising that their workforce is an asset when it comes to ensuring growth. With the rise in chronic diseases and the recent spotlight on mental health, it’s becoming clear that promoting corporate wellness is a must.

When it comes to creating wellness programmes that deliver results, the companies that are proactive and innovative will be the ones whose teams benefit the most. Some companies do the bare minimum, while others deliver workable solutions. Indeed, some of the best wellness programmes in the world include perks such as transportation solutions for staff and on-site gym classes to improve wellness.

Make it count

Your company could have the best wellness programme out there, but if you don’t take the initiative in making the most of it, you will be missing out. To make the most of your company’s wellness programme, it’s important to remember what is important to you. The wellness programme is supposed to:

  • Support your physical and mental health
  • Support your physical and mental health
  • Encourage healthier lifestyle decisions
  • Educate you about your health and wellness.

Should you feel that your company is not up to date with corporate wellness solutions, you can make suggestions to help you move forward. Some employees create their own soccer or walking clubs within their organisation, while others bring healthy snacks and food to share or sell. You can also make requests at work to have more health talks or to include healthier food options on the canteen menu. They seem like small things, but they’re things that benefit corporate culture and give support to those who are ready to take their health and wellness into their own hands.

It is within your rights as an employee to ask questions about your wellness programme at work and to make recommendations so that you and others can benefit.
