Developing Good Habits in the Financial District
There are a variety of factors contributing to total health in workplace including financial, mental, community, and physical well-being. The overall wellness does not just include physical health, but other areas as well. A culture that is vibrant, fun and lively is able to help promote creativity, productivity and teamwork.
Financial well-being is always thoroughly taking care of by the financial companies, which provide staff loan, low interest financing and comprehensive coverage in insurance. Employees will also get coaching or seminar on tax submission, home buying, budgeting and retirement planning.
Counselling play a big role in mental health. Some of the companies provide counselling as part of staff benefit, to help to open up the conversation, lower the barriers for staff to getting help and stress management.
Sport club events or volunteer programs happen throughout the year which increase the community involvement and social support. Employee charity race are among the best method when come to volunteerism in the organisations.
How about physical well-being? Vending machines that stocked with healthy food options? Fitness centre? Clean water throughout the office to encourage hydration? I believe most of them have more than I mentioned.
How about weekly fruit delivery?
An apple a day does more than keep the doctor away. Developing good eating habits in the workplace reduces the risk of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
Instead of getting employees to eat junk food on breaks at work, the company buys them fruit. They put that in the pantry room and the employees snack on that instead of junk and they feel good and they work hard and they don't call in sick.
According to a survey from Health Affairs, February 2010, more than 30 years of evidence has shown that every $1 invested in a workplace wellness program returns at least $3.27.
Fruit and vegetable intake is one of the most important aspects of diet for disease prevention, and greater consumption of fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, certain types of cancer, and type 2 diabetes, as well as improved weight management.
