It's possible to design an employee wellness program that benefits your employees while remaining within an affordable budget. To help you get started, we created a list of inexpensive ways of maintaining health of your employees in every workplace.

 

Onsite Wellness Services

Meditation sessions, chair massages, yoga lessons, and acupuncture, among others, are beneficial wellness programs provided at no cost to your employees. Create a separate space where employees can sign up for weekly sessions at discounted prices.

 

Free, Healthy Snacks

Employees' break areas and meeting rooms must be equipped with healthy, low-fat foods instead of sugary or salty snacks. Let employees make better choices regarding what they eat when purchasing these items in bulk.

 

Workplace Safety, hazards, and safety policies

Before you can begin constructing your safety and security plan for your workplace, it is crucial to be aware of and identify all possible hazards within the workplace. Recognizing safety hazards and problems is the initial step to protecting employees at work.

 

After identifying the potential dangers in the workplace, the next thing to do is establish guidelines and safety practices.

 

Beyond having a clearly defined strategy and safety education, companies must instill new employee behavior by sharing inspiring security stories, condescending new safety strategies, and sharing company achievements.

 

How To Turn Your Safety Program Into A Full Blown Safety Culture

 

Zones to reduce stress

Every office needs at least one "safe" area where employees can vent, cry or unwind after a difficult day. Set up a space where employees can let this out of their systems without fear of embarrassing themselves by losing the battle in front of their peers. Learning how to manage stress in the workplace and helping your employees manage their stress is vital to the workplace of today. You can use sources like Studycrumb to help write new company policies and make sure your paperwork is error-free.

 

Water Coolers

Water is crucial to keeping a healthy mind and body, so your office should have a supply of clean water throughout the day. Purchase a water cooler from the local rental program or spring water in bulk containers to ensure the office refrigerator is well-stocked.

 

Flexible Work Schedules

Benefits that are free and allow employees to have more flexibility in their work and life are an enormous prise for many workers, particularly those taking care of others or having children. Employers should be able to offer flexible plans. They can be at the time that suits them in the morning, take lunch, or work at home when they want to.

 

Fitness Room

Set up a gym within one office space in your workplace by purchasing used fitness equipment, floor mats, and an ice cream bar.

 

Catering Lunches

Some employees skip meals or make poor food choices because they are stressed or overwhelmed. Every month, at least set a goal to invite a catering service to cook and serve a nutritious meal for your employees.

 

In the office, plants

Many workplaces and offices are stuffed with dusty recycled air that can cause employees to feel tired. You can make it a more healthy place by introducing many oxygen-producing plants throughout.

 

Exercise Clubs

The workplace should be fun and motivate employees to exercise by providing exercise programs for runners, walkers, and people who enjoy organized sports. A basketball court set up at the side of the parking area could also help in this regard.

 

Food Classes

Visit local restaurants and universities to find out whether an experienced chef is willing to join your team to lead cooking classes for your staff. This typically pricey (or free) program can motivate employees to cook healthier meals for their family members at home.

 

Health Libraries

Create a library in your corporate, which includes a wide selection of books about subjects related to health and wellness (go to website), and add a virtual health library on your company site to provide health-related information available on demand.

 

Health and Wellness Fair

Go to the next level by arranging an annual wellness and health fair that brings hundreds of health and wellness providers, vendors, and other services into one large area. A few months before the start of open enrollment for employee benefits is the ideal moment to plan an event.

 

Pets at Work

Stress is one of the biggest killers at work Pets have been proven to decrease stress significantly. Employers can have aquariums on their desks that offer the tranquil sounds of water. Also, organize a one-time "bring your pet to work" day to encourage well-being with pet companions.

 

24/7 Nurse Hotline

Accessing medical advice is a cost-effective alternative that could be included in a wellness program for employees. The live nurse hotline can assist employees in getting the assistance they require before an expensive time within the hospital's emergency center.

 

These are only a few ways to offer support for employee wellness within a budget. Consider including one or two of them in your plans to design your unique wellness benefit for your company to create a more positive health and happier work environment for your staff.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
