How Can Employers Support Employee Health?
If there is one thing that is becoming clear through this pandemic, it’s that our health is vital. It is vital to the way we want to live our lives, vital to supporting our families and communities, and vital to keeping our economy humming along. It is not enough to count on modern medicine to swoop in at the last minute to save us. It is up to us to work on building our immune systems and prioritizing our health.
Preventative health is not complicated. There are simple habits that support health by addressing sleep, nutrition, hydration, movement, and stress management, but sometimes it is hard work to establish these habits, and to sustain them. Having support at home and at work can help make these habits stick.
If you are an employer, you may be wondering how to encourage your employees to work toward better health as it becomes clear that healthy employees are an asset to any company. If you are an employee, you may be wondering how to access the tools you need to make the changes you know you need to make in order to stay healthy and be able to work through many circumstances. Corporate wellness programs can bridge this gap, but only if they are done well.
