Benefits of Employee Wellness Programs for Small Businesses [Sponsored]

With a small business, just one sick employee can have an immediate ripple effect on your operations.

Other employees have to work harder to keep things on track – plus they’re at risk of getting sick too. With most people in the U.S. spending about 30% of their lives at work, the office is a great place to encourage healthy habits. In addition, workplace wellness activities have been shown to help companies attract and retain productive employees.

With just a few small steps, you’ll be able to show your employees that you support their health and wellness needs, while also protecting your business.

  • Recruit a wellness champion committed to promoting workplace health.
  • Place hand sanitizers in or near high-traffic areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and conference rooms.
  • Offer fruit and mixed nuts as meeting snacks to keep energy levels up.
  • Organize group walking breaks to help increase creativity and relieve stress.
