As mentioned in many of our earlier articles, employees’ well-being is a thing that can’t be simply achieved by giving financial benefits, as money is not always a factor that will stimulate people and make them feel motivated. This is the reason why more and more companies are turning to Employee Wellness solutions, which aim to take care of the physical and mental health of their employees.
A wellness program for employees can include productivity-enhancing ideas such as a flexible work schedule, the ability to work from home, encouraging ideas and creativity, or access to personal development books. Other ways to increase productivity include engaging employees in sports such as marathon competitions, encouraging them to show support for a sports team, or launching challenges that involve physical exercise.
In terms of personal and professional development, the employer can include here team outings and activities that involve getting to know better other colleagues and socialization, granting study leave, as well as the opportunity attend training sessions. At the same time, a teambuilding involving a seaside trip or mountain experiences could also have an important contribution. All these are activities that help people get to know each other better and overcome the barrier that the formal approach at work sometimes involves.
At the same time, there are certain benefits that can help employees feel revitalized when a big amount of work can overwhelm them. Spaces designed for relaxation and flexibility at work, both in terms of schedule and work breaks, as well as when it comes to holiday leaves are things that help employees feel comfortable at work.
The things listed above are just some of the examples that can turn into the reasons why some employees choose to be loyal to a company or may influence the decision of some candidates to choose an employer to the detriment of another.
