Holistic Wellness and 4 Areas You Should Focus On

Holistic Wellness

Are you focusing on these areas?

When employees are happy and healthy, they perform better at work and take less sick days, which leads to more productivity. There are a few areas of wellness you can address to ensure your company is accommodating the needs of your employees in a holistic way.

  1. Physical: When employees feel better physically, they perform better at work. Consider offering discounted gym memberships or adding wellness programs/challenges in which all employees can participate.  
  2. Financial: Nearly 80% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, according to a 2017 report by employment website CareerBuilder. Consider offering your employees educational programs on how to ease debt or save.
  3. Social: Healthy interactions and friendships are an important component of a happy workplace. Consider company or team outings to foster interactions and enhance morale.
  4. Emotional: When employees are balanced emotionally, they are happier and more productive. Programs, such as Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), encourage employees to take their wellbeing (mind, body, and health) more seriously.
