Why Invest in a Wellness Program? The Unbeatable Benefits

Why Invest in a Wellness Program? The Unbeatable Benefits

Everyone’s talking about starting a wellness program. After all, they provide an array of benefits to both the employee and the employer. So, let’s dive into the concept embraced by corporate giants, SMBs and start-ups.

Wellness Program -A Healthier Team, A Happier Team

First off, simply put, it’s about creating a healthier workplace. This means anything from fitness challenges to stress management workshops. The aim? To make sure everyone feels their best.

Now, wellness programs are not new. Once, they were exclusive perks of the corporate world. Now, they’re everywhere. Everyone’s in on it because there are real tangible benefits.

Keeping Everyone On Their A-Game

The heart of a good wellness program is changing behaviours for the better. This could mean eating more healthily, getting enough sleep, or being active. Over time, these good habits lower health risks. And guess what? Lower health risks mean fewer chronic diseases.

This is a long-term game but good results can be seen within weeks. If the program can make positive changes stick, then the outlook is excellent.

Wellness Program – The Proof Is In The Pudding

You might wonder, does it really work? The answer is a firm yes. Studies upon studies back this up. For example, the American Heart Association says wellness programs can indeed improve health and reduce risks for heart disease. In fact, wellness programs can reduce health risk markers such as high cholesterol and blood pressure. Make no mistake, these are life-changing results.

However, while many aspects of health can improve, weight loss remains a challenge. Most wellness programs struggle here. It’s thought there may be too many external factors affecting weight loss efforts. Yet, some hope remains. Studies show slight improvements in weight over the long haul are possible.

Beyond Health

Let’s not forget, wellness programs do more than just improve health. They signal to employees that their well-being matters. This can lead to a more engaged, motivated team. And, in the grand scheme, a team that feels valued sticks around longer. This is essential in today’s fast-paced world where keeping talent is as crucial as finding it.
