Why Workplace Wellness makes Good Business Sense

A few years ago I worked with a company delivering on-site chair massage. Once a month they hired a therapist for a day and I was asked to cover her annual leave. 

All employees were booked in for a 20-minute session which took place in a meeting room that was reserved for the day. It was a small but busy graphic design company and although they all had lots of things to get on with, once a month their health and well-being was put on their to-do list by the owner who also booked himself in for a treatment.

Team Building

Once a month, these sessions were used to bring the team together on this joint project that benefited not only the individuals but the company too. Individual treatments were designed to take into account each person’s concerns and also to be physically relaxing and promote mental focus. After their session, each employee left looking and feeling refreshed and energised. It was refreshing to work with a company that could see the benefits to their employees (as well as the company) of having regular sessions like this. They appreciated the physical and mental benefits of supporting their employees in this way.

Whilst there I sensed a great team energy about the place – employees and the owner all working together. Relaxed, calmly doing what needed to be done to provide the best service for their clients.

There will always be deadlines to meet, challenging clients and situations to deal with but a mentally relaxed workforce who feel supported by the rest of the team and their employer will always rise to any challenge.

Regular Session

A regular monthly session allowing you to bring your team together like this can have far more benefits than you think. National Workplace Wellness Weeks and Mental Health Awareness days are great occasions in the calendar to put some focus on the health and wellbeing of your employees. When these weeks have gone by, what will you be doing to continue supporting the mental health of your employees? A regular visit from me is a cost-effective way of supporting your employees.
