Corporate Health and Fitness
What is the cost of employee wellness in an organization? Not surprisingly, there is no universal definition of wellness. In the past, Webster’s dictionary defined it as a “quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.” Online Fitness Log offers worksite wellness programs designed to help employees make healthy lifestyle choices. After all, we are all responsible for our own wellbeing — maintaining a healthy weight through good nutrition, exercising to prevent heart disease or type two diabetes, and increasing self-esteem, energy, and mental acuity, as well as controlling health risks such as tobacco, alcohol, and drug use/abuse.
Having an employee wellness program in your company can help improve morale, increase concentration levels, increase productivity in the workplace, reduce employee stress, and promote healthy habits. Whether you provide on-site exercise equipment or an off-site fitness facility to employees to engage in worksite wellness, these incentives may increase the likelihood that everyone employed at your company will exercise. Another incentive is providing employees with their own fitness journal and calorie counter so they can track their weight loss goals.
Worksite Wellness Studies
Studies on worksite wellness programs indicate that employees are more apt to stay with their company long term thus saving the organization money in training, turnover costs, and medical expenses. Knowing these statistics allows companies to take action. The first step is to allow Online Fitness Log to help you with a plan for your employee wellness. Once a corporate health and fitness program has been established, it is important to reassess its effectiveness several times a year in order to reach the primary goal — healthier employees. Health engagement needs to be evaluated to help companies determine what needs to be changed or kept in place to help maintain workplace wellness.
One last, but very important note... there is a secret that I want to share with you. An important factor in determining your overall health and wellbeing is your lifestyle and the choices you make in relation to lifestyle-related goals. These choices have a vast impact on your health and wellness. The secret isn’t healthcare alone, but consistently ensuring your own health by proactively taking responsibility for your own personal wellbeing. Online Fitness Log can help you achieve your goals through continued support with tools like a weight loss journal, food journal, and training journal to keep employees focused on fitness.
