Workplace Wellness – box ticking exercise?

Workplace Wellness day is upon us and the calendar fills up with bookings of talks and workshops clustered around this date. So, is this a fad? Something fashionable for a few short weeks, a box ticking exercise or is it real and genuine?

It all comes down to how your view Wellness in the Workplace on your balance sheet – is it a cost or is it an investment? Is this a short term, quick fix, band-aid type solution which doesn’t really mean anything other than marking some dates on a calendar, posting some pictures on internal systems and maybe a few on social media to look good? I have worked as Wellness Consultant in these organisations and know the story. There is a panic to do something, anything around certain public dates which the media deems as Wellness days and promote this profusely.

Equally, I have worked in organisations who value the wellness of their employees and constantly evaluate how they can improve it. These organisations see healthy and balanced employees as intrinsic to the productivity and growth of their business and thus invest in their people. They want their people to be happy and enjoy their work and know that employee engagement and morale correlates positively to ongoing wellness initiatives in the workplace and not just ad-hoc events.

If you are an organisation who values healthy employees and understands the benefits to the whole organisation and the bottom line, of employees who are happy and well, then I want to work with you! I can provide a customised Corporate Wellness Plan in place to suit your needs putting your employees wellness at the centre of the service. The services includes talks, workshops and on-site complementary therapies delivered on an on-going basis.
