Why you Should Invest in Employee Wellness Services
Google has stubbornly refused to give up its “Best Employer” status. Year in year out, the tech titan emerges first or a close second depending on your information provider. How does the company do that? Well, apart from enticing remuneration, the tech giant has made employee wellness a top priority by removing any hurdle that could make their staff unproductive.
Employee wellness has an impact on how your company performs. While giving your employees competitive salaries may work until the next big thing comes along, investing in your employee’s health and wellbeing will go an even longer way in keeping them.
What can you do to retain the best staff and ensure they are performing at their very best? Being emphatic and offering flexible hours to accommodate personal needs are both a good place to start. However, these are pretty common now and more companies are implementing ongoing employee wellness programs. Below are some ideas that you can implement on a regular basis.
What is more relaxing than a massage in the middle of a stressful day? Health gurus have preached that sitting down for long hours is harmful to the back and by extension, the neck, and eventually the entire body. Massage relieves stress by encouraging blood flow and relaxation. You will be surprised by the impact a 15-minute massage can have on staff productivity.
At Joyful Living, we offer a range of massage services from bringing along our own ergonomic massage chairs, to massage tables, to giving massages at the employee’s workstation.
