At any business, no matter how big or small, the most important factor impacting success is nothing other than your employees. Your employees are the ones who do the majority of the work, often very difficult work, and do it well. This helps you achieve, and it is your responsibility and debt to them that you pay them back. Your employee’s health and wellness are something that you should care about greatly as an employer for both your business’s sake and the sake of your employees. Here are a few ways that you can better promote employee health and wellness.
Offer Gym Access
One of the best things that you can do to promote employee health and wellness is to offer gym access to your employees. Including a gym membership plan as part of your employment benefits package for your employees can make a huge impact on employee health and wellness. While the cost of a gym membership is nothing crazy large for your employees, it can be enough to prevent them from taking out a membership on their own. But with one provided, they are more likely to exercise and therefore protect their mental and physical wellbeing.
Offer Health Benefits
Another keyway that you can promote employee health and wellness at your business is to offer health benefits to your employees. Healthcare coverage Is not a luxury but is rather an absolute necessity for people to meet their healthcare needs. Most people get their health insurance form their employers so the plans you chose directly impact the wellness of your employees. You should also consider offering an FSA as part of your health benefits. An FSA lets employees cover healthcare expenses which include dental and orthodontic care. The best part is these plans are tax advantaged.
Offer Sick Days
The final way that you can promote employee health and wellness at your business is to offer your employees more sick days. Giving employees sick days let them know that you understand that illness happens, and rather than working through it, you encourage and support them in taking time off to recover. Without enough sick days, you are likely to burn out your employees which can result in suffering health, happiness, and productivity at your business.
Your employees are the most important part of your business. Their health and wellness are critical for your continued business success. Make sure that you are doing these three things to promote the health and wellness of your employees.
