Health and Wellbeing Strategy
When it comes to employee health, businesses across the world are beginning to tune into the benefits of having an active, reliable and consistent workplace health and wellbeing strategy.
The main reason why many businesses are now getting involved is purely down to the long-established link between health and wellbeing in the workplace. The healthier and happier your employees are, the more productive they are likely to be at work - we all perform better when we are feeling positive and well.
The overall goal of a health and wellbeing strategy within a business is to boost employee productivity through engaging with them using various activities and initiatives. Many strategies that are poorly considered and lacking in resources will fail, so it pays to invest both your time and your money in selecting a successful strategy that your workforce will buy into.
Our Top Health and Wellbeing Strategy Tips
The key to ensuring your workforce are onboard with your health and wellbeing strategy is to be open and honest about what you want to achieve. Let them know that their needs are at the forefront of the plan and that the strategy will be completely tailored to your workplace - simply 'copy and pasting' another organisation's structure will not only cause issues with employees, but it could also damage your business in the long term.
Sadly, too many organisations miss this point. They pass over the opportunity to put in place an effective and sustainable programme - partly due to the reason above, but also because they avoid asking themselves what they mean by wellbeing in the workplace in the first instance. It's a bit like trying to make your car go faster without first looking under the bonnet!
Why not check your general health and wellbeing with a Health MOT? Improve your lifestyle, maintain fitness and feel healthier!
The success of any health and wellbeing strategy is entirely dependent on what your business hopes to deliver and how success will be referenced. Ask your employees what they feel the organisation could do to improve their health and wellbeing as this is often the gateway to solving a number of otherwise unidentifiable issues.
Larger businesses can easily miss things that are well within their control, such as the desk locations, office openness, and the number of water coolers available as well as the quality of kitchen facilities.
