Host healthy meetings
Integrating simple, healthy habits into your meetings is a tangible and enjoyable way to boost energy levels and help employees stay focused throughout the day. It can be low-cost, flexible enough for small events, and easy to do. Even just including a quick stretch break at your daily team meeting is a healthy start. Healthy meetings tools>>
Walk for wellness
Getting your employees up and moving can be good for your business. Employees who exercise are more productive and have a better attitude at work. Studies also show that yearly direct medical expenses for physically active people are lower than for inactive people. Helping employees exercise more can keep them from developing type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and other potentially costly conditions. Healthy workers are also less likely to get hurt on the job.
Employees with healthy nutrition habits are good for business — eating healthy has been shown to boost energy, concentration, and productivity. According to research, people with poor nutritional balance have 21 percent more illness-related absences and report 11 percent lower productivity. Check out these tools to see how you can help your employees eat better.
