A healthy, productive workplace is no longer viewed simply as a feel-good environment for just organizations. Healthy and happy employees result in a highly productive company and a robust bottom line. When management prioritizes and encourages physical and mental wellbeing, companies and their employees benefit from superior organizational and personal performances. Several highly successful studies showed that improved workplace wellness results in significant enhancements to productivity, creativity, employee satisfaction and overall performance.
Unfortunately, a recent North American Workplace Survey on Workplace Trends revealed that employees aren’t feeling well enough to perform at their greatest potentials. Using the Staples Advantage Workplace Index, the survey found that more than half of employees felt overworked and burnt out. With the current financial climate and the increasing expectations from employers, employees are anxious to maintain their jobs at all costs. Furthermore, working hours have increased over the years, as has the need to remain logged in and contactable beyond office hours.
As a manager, you have high decision latitude and can help your employees defuse stress and enhance their performances by encouraging them to strengthen their physical and mental health. Implement these five simple strategies to transform your workplace into a wonderfully healthy and productive environment.
Encourage them to use these micro-breaks to get up from their desks and stretch their muscles to stimulate the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain and throughout the body. Breathing exercises, meditation and other mindfulness techniques prevent the stress hormones, adrenalin and cortisol, from surging and allow for mental and physical repair and recovery.
Encourage your employees to get up and move. Have walking meetings or invest in standing desks so that they’re not sitting down for long hours. On top of encouraging exercise, promote healthy eating in the office. With the NutriBullet PRO Workplace Wellness Kit, you and your employees can all power up with revitalizing and nourishing NutriBlast smoothies, chock-full of fresh fruits and veggies.
By putting these simple steps into practice, you can enhance productivity and creativity in the workplace and, most importantly, ensure that your employees are healthy and happy.
