This is how You Could Boost Your Business Growth by Ensuring Employee Wellness

In order to make a venture successful, it requires a lot of hard work, passion, and team-effort. Your employees are the most important assets of a business irrespective of the business type. But, how many of companies actually look after their employees’ wellness?

As per recent reports, it is revealed that the top five symptoms causing missed work days are constant fatigue, sleeplessness, aches and pains, high anxiety and weight gain. All of the above symptoms are mainly caused due to long work hours. Due to the increased leaves of your employees, your business ultimately suffers. So, it’s better to keep your employees healthy if you wish to see your business grow.

Here are some of the ways in which you can ensure employee wellness so that you could boost your business.

Break Times

During the long nine hour schedules of the employees, they are given with lunch break, which most of the times seems insufficient. It becomes essential to increase the frequency or time period of break time for the employees. There are few companies where it is mandatory for the employees to take a break as many a time they skip their meals due to the increased work pressure.

Provision of Healthy Snacks and Beverages

Unavailability of healthy food is one of the major contributors of fatigue in employees at work. Overall, health must be given priority in order to reduce the days of absenteeism seen in employees. Therefore, there should be a provision of healthy snacks and beverages for the employees timely. For instance, beverages like fresh lime water, cold/hot coffee, tea, buttermilk etc could keep the employees away from unhealthy beverages like aerated drinks. Implementing such policies could really help in long run to avoid absenteeism in employees, and ensure better enthusiasm and productivity.

 

Organising Team Outings

Team outings are a great way for motivating the employees to work more with the company. It helps in familiarising the team members with each other at professional as well as at personal level, which automatically helps in increasing productivity. Activities like team-lunches, sports events, and recreational trips etc helps in motivating the employees even more and also creates a goodwill of the company. This way, you could make employees more loyal towards you, and the leave applications might also reduce.

Organising Group Meditation Programs

As per studies, it is revealed that stressful jobs might lower the life expectancy rate of an individual. Group meditation programs at work places are highly effective in reducing stress levels. To bring down the stress levels of the employees, guided meditation classes can be organised on a regular basis.  Meditation is considered to be helpful to reduce stress and hence ensures better mental health of the employees.

Yoga and Gym Studios

In this fast-paced world, people are getting caught by lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, high blood-pressure, cardiovascular diseases and stress. Another issue that gets ignored by the masses is obesity. For employees, there must be facilities for yoga or gym studios, and that too free of cost. This will ensure the better health of the employees and hence will add to the productivity of the company.
