Is your workplace an environment focused on employee well being, engagement, personal investment and team working? Providing Healthcare is NOT an employee well-being program!
This article provides good ideas and a sound argument around the benefits of investing in a creative well-being program.
We are a long way from being able to say we have a robust well-being program at Collingwood but our team has recently embarked on the Global Corporate Challenge, working on collaborative projects to improve the work experience here and have swapped out biscuits and chocolates for a bi-monthly fresh fruit delivery. All have been well received and are creating improvements to our working culture.
There’s a long-standing debate about the ROI (return on investment) of wellness programs and the discussion typically centers on cost savings and getting the buy in from the CFO. But these conversations miss the point -- while ROI is important, workplace wellness programs are all about employees. Wellness programs really need to impress the CHRO (chief human resources officer). HR wants to know what these programs can do for employees and how they can inspire and align the workplace. They want to know wellness isn’t just another benefit employees will never use.
