A Guide to Workplace Wellness Culture

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Sep 30, 2019 2:40:02 PM

Creating a wellness program is not the same thing as creating and sustaining a culture of wellness in the workplace.

A wellness program has a beginning and an end, while a wellness culture is a way of life—one that’s followed by leaders and employees at all levels of the organization.

The good news is that you likely don’t need to reinvent the wellness wheel when it comes to establishing a culture of health and well-being.

Engage Remote Workers with Wellness Programs

Posted by Ulliance on Jul 30, 2019 8:16:55 AM

Through personalized communication and sharing of resources, you’ll reach onsite and offsite employees.

Remote work offers many benefits to both employees and organizations. From increased worker productivity and lower overhead expenses to decreased employee stress and a smaller carbon footprint, the practice of remote working is growing in popularity. The 2018 State of the Remote Job Marketplace report from FlexJobs says there are now 3.9 million Americans, or 2.9 percent of the total US workforce, who work from home at least half the time—a 115 percent increase from 2005.

More Is Needed Than an Apple a Day

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Feb 21, 2019 10:34:43 AM

Teachers, their students and their school districts benefit from wellness programs.

We already know employee absenteeism hurts productivity and increases health care and other costs, but those effects are magnified when the employee is a teacher.

Teachers get sick just like the rest of us. But when they do need to take a sick day, school districts end up paying the absent teacher and shelling out cash for a substitute. Pay for subs can run $130 a day in some states, and sometimes more, if the substitute is highly experienced or needed long term. A 2018 study from Excellent Schools PA found that absent teachers in Pennsylvania, which has one of the highest teacher absentee rates in the nation, cost the state an average of $114 million per year.

And, while sick days aren’t entirely avoidable, there are ways to help teachers take control of their well-being.

Help Employees Prevent Annual Holiday Weight Gain

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Nov 6, 2018 9:03:30 AM

These healthy eating tips can become a part of your wellness program.

Office potlucks. The annual holiday party. Beth’s famous sugar cookies. 

From Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day, there are dozens of overindulgence opportunities just waiting to derail us from our regular healthful eating and exercise habits.

According to a study from the New England Journal of Medicine, the average American gains weight during the holidays every year, and if we don’t stick to our resolutions, those pounds can add up over time.

Healthful eating is just as important as fitness for maintaining employee wellness. But it can be challenging to incorporate such practices into your wellness program. Helping your employees stay happy and healthy will lead to a more engaged and productive workforce. Focus on overall employee wellness can also help reduce absenteeism and better increase job performance.

And it’ll help your bottom line.
