Health and wellness professionals consistently report that motivating individuals to participate in a workplace wellness program, like June365, is the biggest challenge they face.
Did you know that investing and incentivising in the physical and mental health and wellbeing of your organisation creates a healthy workplace and is simply good business?
A healthy workplace knows healthy businesses need healthy employees. It recognises that helping keep their community of employees strong, benefits its own business through a healthier workforce and a more invested, loyal organisation.
The World Health Organisation created a report where they discussed the combined factors that affect people's health. They said:
"A healthy workplace is one in which workers and managers collaborate to use a continual improvement process to protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of workers and the sustainability of the workplace by considering the following, based on identified needs:
- health and safety concerns in the physical work environment
- health, safety and well-being concerns in the psychosocial work environment including organisation of work and workplace culture
- personal health resources in the workplace, and
- ways of participating in the community to improve the health of workers, their families and other members of the community."
So, how do you incentivise and continue to incentivise your workforce with your wellness program?
Our key mantra is open communication, a 'They Ask, You Answer’ approach.
If your employees need to know more information about the wellness program, you give it to them. If they want to test it out, we can do a demonstration. If they’re unsure about the benefits, tell me about them. Be open and transparent with how a wellness program can positively affect them and their behaviours and encourage them to keep going. Some companies have found that teamwork and team exercises help or even competitions to boost energy into the program.
With June365, you’ll only get honesty and openness with our program and team, so be sure to get in touch to learn more about our wellness program today.
