Workplace Wellness in 2017
Wellness programs have survived past just being a “fad,” and are now reshaping the workplace for a variety of reasons:
- Integrated with technology- Wellness programs advance with technology and are able to keep employees engaged. Software platforms, wearables, and other data sources provide excellent ways to track progress and deliver insights about what encourages employees to stay healthy.
- Customization- Every organization has employees with different needs and goals, which is why no wellness program is exactly the same. Organizations have the ability to create personalized programs that are effective for their employees and provide a holistic approach to wellness.
- Financial Well-Being– Dealing with financial stress causes anxiety, makes it difficult to focus and can even take a physical toll on employees. As a result, wellness programs have expanded to address the importance of financial well-being. Programs now aim to educate on behaviors like saving and budgeting, and improve attitudes, knowledge, and even confidence surrounding finances.
