Employee wellness is on everyone’s minds right now. The sudden transition to remote work has disrupted the work-life balance of many employees as they adapt to what seems to be a “new normal” work environment, especially for office jobs. That’s why it’s essential to introduce wellness strategies that help employees lead a happier, healthier life.
Here are some useful tips to develop the right wellness program for your employees:
Check in on the current health status of your employees by conducting surveys and interviews. This will help you personalize the wellness strategies according to employee needs.
Set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely) fitness goals to help encourage your employees to be more active despite working remotely.
Make employees aware of the benefits of wellness programs. Help them adapt to it given their current working situation.
Conduct friendly competitions and give points based on performance to make the program more interesting.
Provide incentives like gym memberships, certificates, and awards.
Receive feedback from your employees regularly to improve the program and make it more useful for your employees.
