5 brilliant ways to improve corporate wellness in your workplace

As a topic, wellness in the workplace is right on trend in the business world, as organisations start to fully understand the fact that happy employees are more productive ones. As a result, companies across the UK and beyond are on the lookout for corporate wellness techniques they can implement for success.

Statistically shown to play a major role in recruitment, talent retention and a company’s bottom line, it’s not difficult to see why this is the case. However, understanding where to improve or start is not always clear. That’s what we look at here today, as we offer 5 ways in which you can instil a culture of wellness in your business.

Method 1 – Workplace Massages

If you really want to spread some good feeling across your workforce, then offering free office massages will certainly hit the mark. For organisations that have a corporate wellness budget set aside, it represents a great way to relieve stress while simultaneously enhancing productivity.

Able to be booked around the schedules of your teams, corporate massages also make your staff feel both valued and looked after.

Method 2 – Make Healthy Snacks Available

As they say, you are what you eat. It’s a well used adage for a reason, as healthy eating ensures that a person stays in good shape, while at the same time boosting concentration levels. This approach to diet can be encouraged too, simply by making healthy snacks available in the office.

Whether talking about bowls of fruit or a pre-work healthy breakfast club, initiatives like this are both effective and appreciated by employees.

Method 3 – Organise Social Events

The next of our corporate wellness techniques is not a new one, but that doesn’t mean it’s not impactful. Work social events allow staff to develop friendships with each other and they don’t need to be work-related either. Something as simple as a movie club, ten pin bowling or quiz and beer night can be effective in creating strong bonds.

This feeds into the emotional aspect of corporate wellness, as it’s part of the human condition to want to feel included and sociable.

Method 4 – Run a Pet-Friendly Office

Britain is a nation of pet lovers, as they bring us companionship and help us to feel relaxed and emotionally balanced. This is absolutely something that can be brought in the professional sphere, with pet-friendly offices shown to be great for both branding and talent recruitment.

There are many studies that show how pets can contribute to corporate wellness, as employees are typically less stressed, happier, and more productive. If pets every day isn’t viable for your business, why not try having regular ‘bring a pet to work’ days instead?

Method 5 – Allow Employees to Work Flexible Hours

Ask most people about flexible working hours and the response will invariably be a positive one. That’s because people love having the option, meaning that it has a powerful impact on feelings of wellness. Give employees even just a modicum of control about when they work and job satisfaction jumps significantly.
