Leading UK companies offer their employees comprehensive Wellness programmes. The idea is to encourage employees to improve their overall health and wellbeing both inside and outside of the workplace. The advantages are clear. When employees have more options to be healthy at work, they are likely to feel happier and more productive. It also increases loyalty with employees tending to stay longer. Candice Dedmon a HR Expert comments more benefits of incorporating wellness and team building activities in the workplace such as finding boosting energy, finding hidden talents within your team, mixing up people and promoting more socialisation from the team with other departments as well as celebrating everyone for their own unique skills and wins they bring to the team overall. Meanwhile, employers can also save on health care costs and potential lost productivity by promoting a healthy work culture. Win-win for everyone.
To date, the majority of Wellness initiatives have focused on promoting proactive health through workshops on diet and nutrition ad providing physical activity through onsite gyms. Increasingly, companies provide a range of psychological supports with everything from Employee Assistance programs to help staff through tough personal challenges like bereavement through to providing relaxing activities in the workplace like meditation and massage.
However, with a changing workplace and more employees working remotely from home, employers are increasingly seeing the importance of team building programs. In addition to sport and physical activities, they are also realising the role the Arts can play in creating a healthy and creative workplace.
