Using Wellness Programs to Build Positive Company Culture


Your wellness program could become a powerful tool in building cohesive teams and a solid company culture. But how do you turn your wellness program into a positive company culture-building experience?

Effective team-building It is now evident that having a great product or service no longer defines a great company. More and more, job seekers are putting a premium on company culture. People will move away quickly from a toxic company culture no matter how famous or profitable the company is. One of the essential pillars to building a positive company culture is to build effective teams. And as an administrator in your company, it is possible for you to do that by using your wellness program as a doorway. Improved work-life balance More and more employees are also now concerned about being able to


want to be able to work hard and play hard as well. Your wellness program can allow employees to do that. One day company retreats that focus on wellness or an after-hours mixer where your employees can relax and get to know colleagues “outside” of work can improve the overall well-being of employees. People do what they see people do Several psychological studies show us that people o what they see other people do. Even though many of us don’t like to admit it, several actions we take daily have been influenced by someone or something we admire. This is why advertising for some of your products at home has celebrity endorsements! Whether we admit it or not, many of us want to be accepted by the prevailing culture. Thus if the prevailing culture at your workplace supports healthy eating, health risk assessments that are promptly followed up on, and regular opportunities to exercise or rejuvenate the mind, chances are that people will adopt the culture on their own and practice it without prompting. A company culture that promotes healthy living will have healthy employees.

Encourages communication Additionally, since the brain releases endorphins during exercise-chemicals in your brain that promote a sense of well-being-co-workers are more likely to associate themselves with those positive memories. Those positive memories lead to cordial relationships, mitigate conflict and create a healthy environment to work in. Your wellness program can be another redundant tool or it can be a powerful tool for building a praise-worthy company culture.
