Happy and Healthy WorkersA healthy workforce is a more productive workforce. How? Healthy individuals spend less time visiting doctors and they often have more stamina with which to complete their work. Not to mention, healthy people generally have less stress and more confidence than their ill counterparts. And, if you're still not convinced that a healthier workforce is an important part of running a business, you might be interested to know that healthy employees can bring down the cost of group healthcare.

For these reasons, and because employees spend such a large chunk of time at work, it's in your best interest to encourage your workers to live healthier. Compassionate employers who genuinely care about the well being of their staff are more likely to retain loyal, hardworking employees. So how do you encourage your workers to live healthier?
  • Swap break room junk food for healthy snacks. Nix the candy and soda in favor of granola bars, yogurt, fruit, rice crackers, tea, bottled water etc.
  • Encourage employees to engage in fitness activities by planning lunchtime walks or runs. It's also a good idea to take a 10-minute walk mid-morning and another one mid-afternoon to break up hours of sitting.
  • If these activities are successful, consider hosting a game afternoon every quarter. Your staff will have the opportunity to get moving, and it also doubles as a team-building activity that allows employees to support each other's progress.
  • Arrange a deal with a local gym that allows employees to join for a discounted rate. Your employees will enjoy the savings, while the gym will gain new members. Win-win!
  • Bring in dieticians, fitness trainers and other health professionals to teach seminars on a variety of wellness topics. Employees are more likely to make healthier choices with a wealth of free knowledge at their fingertips.
