Advantages of an Employee Wellness Day in the Workplace
When it comes to employee wellness not many employers are knowledgeable about the true benefits of a health fair, and how it works. Their employee’s health is more valuable to them than they realize. A healthy employee is happier and more productive in the workplace. To make them healthy you [the employer] need the tools to show them how to go about seeing the proper wellness professionals that will lead them in the right direction-to good health. (That’s where we come in!)
This can be accomplished by an Employee Wellness Day. An Employee Wellness Day consists of a group of wellness professionals varying from: Chiropractors, Podiatrists, Dental Groups, Holistic Health Coaches, Acupuncturists, and Nurses to perform Blood Pressure Screenings, Cholesterol/Glucose Screenings and Flu Shots, Life Coaches, and even Meditation Specialists. How do these fit in the workplace? Depending on the type of company that is holding the Employee Wellness Day, all of these professionals will impact the employee’s day to day tasks while at their job. For example: A Chiropractor can show you how to sit properly in your chair so you have better posture. If this is a hands-on job the doctor can show you how to lift properly to prevent straining your back. The Chiropractor in return, can check your posture and see if you need an adjustment, and can also make an appointment right on the spot! Now picture this; you go see him/her they do their Chiropractic magic and no more constant back pain! Happy Employee!
Health benefits are so costly these days it is crazy not to utilize the health professional you need to stay healthy! An Employee Wellness Day is great because you can literally make all the necessary appointments you need from one big room. How easy is that? That’s what I like to call killing two (or more) birds with one stone! No looking up doctors, no wondering who to call about your aching feet, or toothache. They are all in it together creating happy healthy people, plus while you are there you can score a free toothbrush from the dentist or some pens from the podiatrist and who doesn’t love free stuff?! Another bonus of having an Employee Wellness Day is they usually come with a massage therapist ready to give you your free 10min back massage!
This is just a little insight of how the Wellness Fair works. Hopefully it’s enough for you to want to find out more of what we offer and how we operate. One last time; A healthy employee is a happy employee, a happy employee is a happy employer!
