Creating a healthy workplace culture

Have you ever thought what a healthy workplace culture looks like? Your Wellness Hub have, we have even put together what behavioural changes your company could make to help your employees become healthier, happier and more productive.

Educate employees about nutrition
Starting the day right with a good nutritional breakfast can provide employees with sufficient energy to complete tasks and be productive. Therefore, it is important to educate employees on the benefits of a healthy diet so your employees will start the day happy, fuelled and full of energy.

Provide fitness trackers
Motivate employees to be more active with fitness trackers. You could even set up challenges and rewards.

Be active on the way to work
Now that your employees have access to fitness trackers, why not encourage them to cycle or walk to work and be more physically active to get their daily number of steps up. People who cycle or walk to work arrive in a positive mood, are happier and more productive.

Raise awareness of health issues
Engage and educate employees with an annual programme of topic monthly health calendar designed to raise awareness and knowledge within the workspace. 

Supply standing desks
8.9 million working days were lost in 2017 due to work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Standing desks can help to reduce back pain, improve posture and reduce the health risks associated with prolonged sitting.

Encourage healthier snacking choices
Employees spend a significant amount of time at work, therefore healthy eating within the workplace cannot be underestimated in order to properly fuel and energise staff. Providing healthy snack boxes or vending machines can give employees that little nudge to eat better.

Stress management
Stress is one of the five most common causes for short and long-term absences at work. Your Wellness Hub provides a choice of solutions for stress management.

Organise group workout classes
Group workouts are great for team building, staff engagement and reinvigorating employees to return to the office more energised. Why not offer an instructor led lunchtime walk or workout?

Wellbeing workshop days can motivate people to take action with their health and make positive changes.
