Healthier employees create a healthier bottom line
It is true that most of us are becoming more and more health conscious, however due to higher stress, longer work days and constant multitasking, it is more difficult to find the time to act on our wellness goals. The fact remains that the majority of an employee’s waking time is spent at or commuting to and from work.
With rising insurance costs and growing concerns for health in general, companies are starting to take corporate wellness programs seriously.
Keep your employees healthy
You already know that finding and retaining good employees is key to a corporation’s success ~ but helping your employees stay healthy is just as important.
As doctors, kinesiologists, nutritionists, health coaches and researchers, we have seen thousands of people struggling to be productive and to get through their work day. We hear the same thing: employees are lethargic, in pain and unmotivated. And, in many cases, workplaces do not generally foster a healthy environment, so individual staff members feel discouraged to do anything about it.
As we move further into the Technology Era, we recognize that workplaces are over-whelmed and under-resourced ~ which leads to this culture of do more and take no prisoners.
But we now know – and the research clearly shows – that good hydration, healthy nutrition, frequent movement, relaxation, proper sleep and ergonomics can actually improve the productivity and efficiency of individuals in the workplace. The Health Engine Online is meant to educate employees about their own health and empower them to set goals for making such improvements.
