Transforming Your Workplace Through Wellness
In today’s chaotic, post-pandemic world, at least 94% of American workers report feeling significant levels of stress at work. If that statistic seems staggering, that’s because it is; with nearly every employee feeling overburdened in their jobs, prioritizing workplace wellness is more than just an ideal. Now, it’s a necessity. As an employer, investing in workplace wellness not only benefits your employees’ health and happiness, but also contributes to increased productivity and reduced healthcare costs. With national employee retention rates plummeting, the bleeding costs of finding, hiring, and training new employees continues to skyrocket.
A healthy workforce is a productive workforce, and when employees feel free–and even encouraged–to prioritize their well-being, they feel valued and appreciated, and are much less likely to experience burnout. Statistically, employees who feel valued and recognized by a healthy workplace environment are almost six times more likely to stay at their jobs than those who don’t, and up to 80% of employees polled say they would work harder if they felt better appreciated and cared for. We recommend the following workplace wellness ideas: giving employees their birthdays off, verbally commending them for going above expectations, encouraging open communication, holding meetings to discuss the importance of mental health and wellness, and even just stopping to listen to any input or feedback they have about their work.
