If you’ve ever given any thought to providing your team with a corporate wellness program, you’ll likely be looking at what it provides in terms of return on your investment. However, what shouldn’t be overlooked is what programs of this kind offer from a performance and job satisfaction perspective – as the facts are quite compelling.
The fact is that when well-being support is provided by a company in a meaningful way, employees feel empowered to do better. This is no idle claim either, as according to a 2016 study by the American Psychological Association, 91% of respondents said that they felt motivated by companies that offered it, compared to 30% for companies that don’t.
Corporate wellness programs & what they offer
When engaging with a wellness program , your employees will typically get access to a comprehensive range of physical and mindfulness-focused classes that help to boost energy levels, mood and the ability to concentrate. Generally speaking, there will be something for every taste and requirement to include:
- HIIT training
- Aerobics classes
- Boxing training
- Silent Fitness Disco
- Laughing Yoga
- Posture workshops
- Nutritional seminars
Designed to get the blood pumping and energise the body, exercises trigger the release of endorphins that boost mood while also improving overall fitness. What’s more, the mindfulness and relaxation options available from corporate wellness companies – yoga and meditation – help participants to de-stress and improve emotional well-being.
How corporate wellness support motivates
The physical and mental benefits of exercise and meditation help to make employees improve their health and ability to perform. As we’ve already covered, there’s a range of benefits that come along with engaging in these activities on a regular basis.
However, there is another advantage to providing this kind of support – improved company reputation. Wellness support like this is very much seen as a perk and companies that provide it are viewed as employers who care about their staff.
Employees feel lucky to be in their roles
So, not only do you get a motivated workforce – where 91% feel driven to perform at their best – but also a reputation as a business that values its employees. This helps to reduce staff turnover and attract the best talent.
Of course, there’s an outlay involved in introducing a tailored corporate wellness program, but it’s often greatly outweighed by increased performance and the profit this leads to. The benefits pervade throughout the business, offering a holistic effect that results in happy, driven employees and a healthier-looking bottom line.
