Why the focus on Wellness?
Jeffry acknowledges the benefits of workplace wellness programs and often cites numerous academic sources which highlight the benefits. He conducts most of his idea brainstorming meetings with his colleagues and employees while working out in the gym or when taking walks and jogs. Indeed, wellness cultivates welfare, and the two bring about vitality and productivity.
Before Google became the first global company to introduce the concept of workplace wellness to their human resources policy, the corporate world was plagued with absenteeism and presenteeism. The two are detrimental to corporate effectiveness and productivity. However, while presenteeism takes a much bigger toll on workplace productivity than absenteeism, most corporate heads remain ignorant of it and its consequences.
What is Presenteeism?
Presenteeism simply describes physical employee presence despite mental absenteeism characterized by sleeping tendencies and general unresponsiveness. Presenteeism is often caused by employees reporting to work while sick, stressed out or fatigued. While employers fuss about healthcare expenses and absenteeism, they neglect the issue of presenteeism which often causes more productivity loss than the other two.
Benefits of Wellness Programs
Doctors have often gone on record to assert that physical activities free up brain cells and make minds sharper. Monochrome cubicles couple up with monotonous workdays to completely drain energy and morale from employees. Some employees desire to work out amid work hours but lack the space and support to do so. Workplace wellness programs present employees with:
Games are fun, especially if played socially as opposed to in solitude. They lighten up moods, jog the mind and reduce stress
Wellness programs allow stress releases and physical fitness. Employees become sharper, more focused and motivated. With increased concentration levels and responsiveness, they find it easier to accomplish all of their mental tasks with increased ease.
- Support and Teamwork
Working out alone takes more discipline to stick to the program than when doing it socially. The support to accomplish physical and mental wellness goes a long way in curing depression and social stigma. Colleagues find it easier to work as a team after bonding through wellness programs. Ultimately, they grow personally, professionally and as a team.
- Fitness and Improved Health
Absenteeism is caused by mental fatigue, poor health and lack of motivation. Workplace wellness programs inspire healthy eating habits, happiness and general fitness which all combine to prevent and reverse lifestyle diseases. Stronger and healthier employees work more and better than ailing ones.
