Why to adopt Workplace or Corporate Wellness Programs?
When businesses and organizations commit to creating an environment that promotes wellness, employees and members benefit. It all starts with the willingness to develop opportunities to learn and engage with one another in challenging but appropriate ways. It is not enough to say you want to develop this kind of climate and culture, leadership needs to be purposeful in their actions. Providing personalized workplace wellness workshops or corporate wellness programs are one of those purposeful choices. These workshops can benefit your employees and members in a variety of ways.
What is a Positive Workplace Culture?
A positive workplace atmosphere is one that supports creative and productive work. It is a cooperative, civil workplace that is mostly free from gossiping, backstabbing, internal strife, petty bickering, power struggles, and arguments. A positive workplace needs to be cultivated via encouragement, setting examples of how things should be done, and educating people about how best to work together. When your organizational climate is balanced, positive, and cohesive, your employees will experience less stress, lower absenteeism, and greater buy-in. These all lead to more effective teamwork, communication, and conflict mediation which in turn leads to greater efficiency.
Let’s take a closer look at a few of the benefits of positive workplace climate and culture!
Enhanced health: Workplaces that are negative or full of stress often cultivate poor health conditions, ranging from physical pain to mental and emotional stress. Positive culture can reduce the amounts of stress and, subsequently, the instances of health problems.
Better employee engagement: Happy employees work harder, are more focused, and are more engaged in the work they need to do. When employees are unhappy, stressed, or exposed to a negative workplace environment, they tend to disengage, which negatively impacts productivity and the bottom line. Employees who are more engaged also work more efficiently and make fewer mistakes.
Greater loyalty: By fostering a positive climate and culture, employees are happier, more committed to their employer, and more loyal. Reduction in turnover is good for everyone, not the least of which the business. Less turn over means the business doesn’t have to withstand the time and expense of hiring and training new workers.
Fewer absences: Healthier employees are less likely to be absent from work. When employees are absent it can cost employers a significant amount of money in terms of productivity lost.
Better business performance: A healthy and positive workplace encourages and develops workers who give their all and are committed to getting the job done well. Additionally, since there are less negative influences (like stress) in this type of culture, individual and overall business performance improves.
