The Holistic Approach To Workplace Well-being.
4 More Business Benefits of a Healthy Workforce:
It speaks for itself: employees who complete tasks efficiently can take on more, with less risk of exhaustion. This in turn increases profitability, growth, and easier time meeting consumer demand and industry competition. Take care of your employees, and they’ll take care of you.
Mental state and attitude vary from employee to employee, but the relationship between overall health and these factors can be addressed with a holistic wellness approach. When employees feel better—physically and emotionally—they have better critical thinking skills and resiliency. Resiliency is like a reservoir; we build up tolerance and depth, and while it might feel depleted from time to time, we can build it backup via holistic wellness initiatives. Investing in mental health and acknowledging the ability to build resiliency (as well as when it’s getting low) can deliver a powerful ROI.
Relationships at work can make or break a job. Feeling “in-tune” with coworkers helps build a supportive community where people feel comfortable. It can also promote wellness in many ways, from company sponsored intramural teams to simply providing accountability to each other to get healthier. Not to mention that working with friends can push people to do better through ideas, company pride, and all the benefits that come from a support network.
Introducing employee health initiatives designed to drive wellness can help achieve company goals in multiple ways. Some goals are less tangible than others, like a happy workplace. Designing an organization that is not only successful, but is a place that helps employees feel good, doesn’t happen by accident. Holistic wellness in the workplace leads to a happy workforce and a happy environment.
