Prioritise an effective wellness campaign in your workplace new year resolution
With the excitement of Christmas over and January blues settling in, the first month of the year tends to be challenging for even the most resilient of your co-workers. It’s harder to find energy and motivation to get back into the swing of things at work, which is why kicking off a wellbeing programme in January is a great way to re-energise your team.
As New Year’s resolutions tend to be focused around shedding those extra festive pounds, running a wellbeing programme alongside these inevitable goals will help your team understand their body physiologically as well as psychologically.
One in four people experience mental health problems each year. That’s at least 25% of your workplace. A wellbeing programme that empowers your colleagues can be incredibly helpful in creating that healthy mindset which ultimately enhances their focus, productivity and engagement at work.
January 2022 will see the launch of our brand new wellbeing packages that can be used in your team building and team bonding events. Book your 2022 wellbeing focused events today to give your workplace the best start to their New Year!

What are the benefits of a Workplace Wellbeing programme?
1. Improves employee health
By helping your employees develop healthy habits, you help them avoid health complications that can lead to chronic disease. Wellness programs encourage employees to eat healthy foods and exercise, reducing the risk of long-term health problems and helping them feel more energized and happy throughout their work days.
A wellness program can have a positive impact on your team’s mental health as well. Many companies encourage employees to adopt healthy eating habits and provide nutritious food on site in order to encourage this behavior. Research shows that eating a nutritious diet not only provides sustained energy levels, but can also reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
2. improves engagement
When companies create a culture focused on employee wellness, they typically have a more engaged workforce. Weight loss challenges, walking groups and other wellness activities help employees feel more connected to the company they work for and to their co-workers. These activities help strengthen the relationships employees have with one another and their managers and can increase the likelihood that an employee will remain with the company for a long time.
3. morale boost
A wellness program can help improve the morale of your entire team, as participating in one can create feelings of satisfaction among employees. Wellness programs help employees feel more supported in their health and wellness goals, which can help them feel more valued by their employer. These employees are more likely to embrace the opportunity
Wellness programs can also add variety into the workday. Educational programs and wellness activities teach employees new things and add an element of fun into the work environment to generate enthusiasm and boost morale.
4. reduces stress levels
While stress does occur in the workplace, a wellness program can help to reduce or eliminate prolonged stress that reduces productivity and leads to unnecessary absenteeism from sickness. By creating a wellness program that’s focused on reducing stress in the workplace, you can improve your team’s performance and employee retention.
5. improves attendance and staff turn-over
Wellness programs help to improve the health of a company’s workforce. Elevating the health of your team and minimizing stress as much as possible can increase their overall satisfaction in their role by making them feel more invested in their work. When employees feel healthy and morale is good, they’re more motivated to come to work and perform at their best, improving company-wide attendance.
6. improves teamwork
When employees work well as part of a team, they’re more productive and the quality of their work also improves. They also tend to be more creative, since teamwork generally results in better collaboration and the development of more innovative ideas. By participating in wellness programs together, particularly team-based activities, employees can strengthen their relationships with one another, encourage each other and hold one another accountable for their goals. Taking part in wellness activities outside of the workplace can also help with team bonding and camaraderie, which further improves communication and collaboration in the workplace.
