Creating a culture of health
By Bob McCollins, Pulse Health Solutions
Americans spend a lot of time at work, even more than they devote to sleep and leisure activities. Health and wellness seem to take a back seat to earning a living! It’s no wonder we struggle with an alarming rate of chronic diseases that while costly are also preventable. Increasing physical activity and sleep, eating better, lowering tobacco and alcohol use, and having annual preventive exams can dramatically improve health and well-being.
An increasing number of companies have begun to consider the benefits of investing in programs that provide health awareness, health education and incentives for their employees. With rising health insurance rates, and unhealthy employees impacting workers’ compensation claims and risk, more companies are breaking down the traditional silos and making health and well-being part of their culture. Any successful business or organization knows that hope is usually never a sound strategy for success, yet H-O-P-E is the perfect strategy to improve the health and well-being of your employees:
- Healthy employees are happier employees – This creates a happier workplace; people
are working together in a great environment and jobs no longer feel like work.
- On the job and with fewer sick days – Studies show that people who maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and a healthy diet get sick less than people who don’t.
- Productivity improves when people feel their best – Healthy employees are more
focused, engaged in their work, and more likely to perform at a higher level in both
quality and efficiency.
- Energy in your workplace soars as your culture of health and well-being increases – When everyone is focused on good health, you will see the energy shift as they come together
to give each other encouragement and support.
With a team of happier, healthier employees, your business or organization will feel the positive impact. Productivity increases and the energy around the workplace will see a dramatic, positive improvement and as a result, so will your bottom line!
