In 2016, no organizations will argue the benefits of workplace wellness programs. Healthier employees are more productive, take less sick days, and hold their positions longer than their unhealthy counterparts.
Here’s the question to ask your team…. “Does our program work?”
Even better… “Do you love it?”
Chances are you’ve had a few employees see minimal success with a step program or weight loss challenge, participation is low and they have to be baited with free gift cards or discounted healthcare premiums.
What you need is a program that employees describe as “Motivating and FUN, the best part of my day!”
Good luck getting your team to describe an online step program as FUN…
On-site fitness classes are the solution.
Whether it’s yoga, fitness bootcamp, pilates, barre, cardio kick box, or good old-fashioned circuit training you immediately see the impact on your team.
The first thing that happens is your team starts to smile and they start to bond… immediately.
Research continues to prove the link between physical and coordinated activity and meaningful social bonds between participants. What happens when your employees start to build solid relationships? ….Magic.
Improved productivity. Reduced absenteeism. Boosts in creativity. Revitalized morale.
Good luck getting your “count your steps” program to do that.
Healthier & happier employees = massive return on investment.
Here’s another pearl for you… the #1 reason that Americans fail when trying to reach their health and fitness goals is “not having enough time.”
Squeezing in an hour at the gym each day keeps getting more difficult as we age. Responsibilities grow both at work and at home until our health is no longer a priority because there simply isn’t enough time in the day.
On-site fitness classes save employees up to 6 hours per week by bringing the workout directly to them. Whether your organization offers classes before, during, or after the workday it finally makes a healthier lifestyle convenient.
Combine this convenience with strong relationships and employer support– Now you have the recipe for success.
