Most desk jobs are monotonous, involving employees to work in a 9-5 routine format. In such a redundant lifestyle it is easy to get bored, fall sick and what not. On the contrary, in a set up where the employer gives preference for the employees' health and fitness, people tend to be brighter and happier to work. Be it a gym or a group work out session, it can do wonders to the employees and their performance. Here are 4 benefits of wellness programs in offices:
Active work life
In terms of physics, when a particle is excited, it is easier to move it than when it is still. Similarly, when the human body gets into physical work out, the body parts tend to become more active after that and it boosts the stamina. That is why it is best to work out in the morning. This will boost the employee's performance and reduce the sick leaves!
Team work is not only dividing official work and executing it but also developing a rapport with your colleagues in such a way that it becomes easy to work with them and team work outs are a great way to bond. Remember the morning assembly that you used to have at school and how refreshing it used to be back then? This activity is similar to that and it helps in amiability of the colleagues too.
Feel good factor
Who does not stop to admire a group of people who are fit for their physique? Adding to this, imagine a team that is fit and good looking! Isn't this itself enticement enough to stay together and work? This also becomes a motivation factor and builds the self-esteem and satisfaction of the employees working in the organisation.
Health and life insurance
Insuring the employees with savings plans helps them and their family feel secured and reassured that the company cares for them. The good thing about this is that the company does not have to spend anything for them but instead invest a portion from the salary of the employees. People would rather choose a company that gives health benefits than a one that does not.
