Your sales team is a vital cog in the mechanism that is your business, so you need them to perform at a high level on a consistent basis. Sometimes, there’s a fine line between success and failure, meaning that anything you can do to give them an edge is worth something. That’s something that can be delivered via a well-constructed corporate wellness program.
There are times when you need to think ‘out of the box’ in business, but instead, we’re thinking ‘out of the office’, as outdoor exercise is something that offers several far-reaching advantages both to the individual and the company as a whole. So, join us now as we look at 5 compelling reasons why providing outdoor wellness classes can benefit your sales team.
Reason #1 – Less Absenteeism
A Society for Human Resource Management study has shown that businesses covering for absent staff will averagely experience a drop in productivity of just over 31%, so absenteeism has a very real financial impact. Wellness programs are proven to reduce absenteeism by making people feel better about themselves.
Aside from simply being away from work, outdoor exercise offers a whole host of benefits to the body and mind. Vitamin D, fresh air and getting involved in social activity all work to improve a person’s mindstate and provide balance.
Reason #2 – A Harder Working Workforce
Fitter, healthier employees can work harder for longer, due to increased stamina and energy levels. This has a natural, knock-on effect of allowing staff to increase their productivity without causing them undue stress and fatigue – enough reason for any business owner to consider investing in a wellness program with outdoor elements.
Outdoor exercise helps to improve sleep too, which clearly allows people to be the best version of themselves each day at work.
Reason #3 – Improved Job Satisfaction
When you provide your team with outdoor activities as part of a corporate wellness program, the advantages aren’t limited to productivity. That’s because it’s seen as a perk by employees and indicates that a caring, nurturing company culture exists in your workplace. It’s these kinds of factors that make a person feel more job satisfaction.
What does a salesforce that’s happy in its work do? That’s right, they sell more, so it offers a tangible return on investment that you can see.
Reason #4 – Mental Health Is Improved
Another huge factor that’s focused on far more than it ever has been in the workplace – is mental health. Exercise releases ‘feel-good’ endorphins (serotonin), which, when added to the vitamin D provided by outdoor sunlight, means that employees get a mood boost that lasts long after the exercise has finished.
Happy employees are more productive, and the social aspect of exercise classes also promotes teamwork and better engagement in team projects.
Reason #5 – Increased Morale Sets the Bar Higher
Not being able to meet your work objectives often leads to being overworked, which then leads to stress and a whole host of other issues. However, when your workforce has greater fitness, stamina and overall longevity, deadlines can be more easily met. This increases both belief in what it’s possible to achieve and morale, raising the bar of performance.
It’s all part of the virtuous circle that’s put into place when a well-crafted, flexible fitness and wellness program is available to staff. As we can clearly see, the benefits go far beyond having fitter and healthier staff.
