Your organization can help encourage healthier behavior and lifestyles among employees by utilizing a wellness program. Wellness initiatives can include counseling services, support groups, fitness facilities, smoking cessation classes, health screenings, and nutrition courses.
Simple communication, education, and training can have a dramatic effect on the health and well-being of your staff. Providing materials about health-related topics is a good beginning. For example, obtain nutrition information for local fast food restaurants and post it in a break room or lunch room so employees can make informed choices the next time they head out for lunch. You could also provide healthier options in your vending machines.
If you already have a wellness program, keep it interesting so employees continue to participate. Mix it up, try new things, and ask for employee input to generate new ideas. In addition to developing new activities, repeat events that were popular. The goal is to get your employees to start taking their own steps toward better health.
