Promoting Healthy Living in the Workplace

Monday, December 02, 2013

 

Have you ever been in a professional setting where it seems like everyone is sick or out of the office? The sight alone makes customers and other professionals want to turn around and run for their lives (especially in flu season)! Whether your staff members sit behind a desk all day, or are out working in the hot sun, you want to be sure that they are leading good, healthy lives. After all, a business is only as good as its employees are! So, even though you offer a good health insurance package to your employees, can you say that they are getting the wellness care that they need to be healthy and that you want to help keep your business running smoothly?

One of the best ways to ensure that your staff members are healthy and that your business continues in full operation with your entire staff is by providing them with quality healthcare. In The Importance of Health Insurance to a Company, all of the benefits of offering health insurance are touched on, but most health insurance programs don’t offer what corporate wellness plans can bring to the table. Take a look at some of the benefits that these types of programs offer to companies and businesses just like yours.

·       Increased face-to-face time with physicians

·       Access to highly experienced, top rated physicians

·       Same-day or next-day appointment scheduling

·       Access to quality care while traveling

·       Wellness program integrated into their healthcare

·       Quick referrals to quality medical professionals

While most health insurance companies offer group plans, none of them can boast these types of benefits. And, while your team members get the benefit of better healthcare and wellness coaching to lead healthier lives, companies get benefits as well. But, this isn’t necessarily limited to a tax break, the benefits that the business gets are improved productivity, less employees taking sick days and improved morale. Your employees need to know that their health is important to you, and that you are taking the initiative to show them that they are a vital part of your business operations. According to Entrepreneur, you can boost morale within a business by keeping your team feeling like this is more than just a simply job. Well, the best way to do that is to show your team that they have a stable position and have great benefits that aren’t offered by most other companies. Showing that your company wants to take care of their staff and values something as precious as their health is certainly enough to help individuals consider their position as something more than just the average job.

You are certainly going to be promoting healthy living within the workplace.
