CREATING WORKPLACE WELLNESS
ARC Benefits Planning can work with you to create and implement a workplace wellness program, right sized for your workplace.
Consider all aspects of workplace wellness. While our diet and physical fitness have a huge effect on our health, so do our stress levels, how supported we feel, the amount of sleep we get and the leisure time we have.
Creating a holistic workplace wellness environment doesn’t happen overnight. It’s something your workplace must infuse in your values, vision, policies and procedures. It requires genuine commitment and support from the leadership team.
Employers who are considering a wellness program in the workplace understand the importance of gathering information in advance to understand what is currently in place (such as employee health and dental benefits, retirement benefits, staff access to health food options), and gathering information from employees to understand their needs and interests. Encouraging employee buy-in and addressing any real issues in your workplace, such as employee communication, is part of the process of understanding how to approach workplace wellness.
Examples of elements included in a workplace wellness program include: Work / Life Balance, Healthy eating, Physical activity, Managing health conditions, Mental health resources.
