As you sit behind your desk in human resources and look at the calendar for the year ahead, planning a health event for your employees should be one of the first ideas to light bulb in your mind. Yes, you’re probably running down the mental checklist: summer company picnic, holiday party, toy drive, walkathon– and these are all examples of wonderful and important events as well, but a health event, also sometimes called a health fair, should be in that same breath you uttered those other first inklings of ideas. And here are the top three reasons why:
They build morale. The team members that feel good work hard and stay longer. Your employees feel good when they feel like you are looking after them and inviting them to do things on company time that are for their own benefit, health and happiness. If your team is happy in their work environment, they will feel positive emotions regarding their work and be far more likely to go the extra mile.
They cut down on sick days. DASHA®’s business focuses on chiropractic work, massage therapy, personal training, physical therapy and acupuncture – we are a one-stop wellness shop where our primary commitment is to help people on their journeys to enhance their well-being. When we go into an organization or corporation, we have the ability to run a variety of programs, from a session on better ergonomics, to massage, to a yoga class – you name it, we customize it to meet the needs of our clients. Ultimately, a health event brings awareness to the body or to health issues that may need education or attention. As people work toward a healthier version of themselves, they feel stronger, better, and have more time and energy to devote to their work, which results in fewer sick days.
They say, “Your work/life balance matters.” It’s the modern world. It often goes unspoken that we should be available via technology 24/7. But health, hobbies, family and friends matter. If one of these arenas of life is disrupted, it will inevitably impact work negatively. A health event reminds your team that you care about their well-being and recognize that if they take care of themselves and the people and things in their life that matter outside of work first, then they will be able to approach juggling the demands of both in a more balanced fashion.
