Want to help your staff get in shape, while boosting productivity at the same time? You probably haven’t considered this solution!

It’s that time of year again.

And it’s pretty likely that health kicks and lifestyle overhauls have been the subject of many discussions in your workplace.

Fad diets and beach bodies aside though, when’s the last time that you took a moment to consider how you’re promoting health and well-being to your employees?

It’s something that can have huge benefits for your business (from reduced staff absence to boosted morale and productivity), but it can also seem a bit wishy-washy on the surface. Of course you want to do all you can to make sure your staff are happy and well, but what practical steps can you actually take to facilitate this?

One option is to partner with local businesses to bring an exciting agenda of positive health and fitness messages, education, and initiatives into your workplace.

How this works is pretty simple on the surface. You pinpoint companies operating in your local area, and get in touch to invite them to share taster sessions with your members of staff, for mutual benefit. They get to increase the awareness of their services and build connections with those who are interested in what they have to offer, and you get the opportunity to create an exciting programme of events.

Of course though, you need to get some strong foundations in place if you want to make sure that it’s a success. Here, we’ll talk you through a few key things to consider.

Do your due diligence when it comes to choosing who to work with

You want experts who know their stuff sharing their advice with your employees. It’s really important therefore that you choose only businesses with sensible philosophies. Messages around moderation, eating real, whole foods, moving more, and making sustainable long-term lifestyle changes are the ones that you should gravitate towards.

Businesses that promote crash diets or living on packaged shakes should be avoided.

Make it clear that ‘hard sell’ isn’t appropriate

Your employees won’t appreciate it if you arrange for them to be stuck in a room for an hour with someone who’s going to try to force them into spending a fortune to take part in their latest programme. Avoid this by having a frank conversation from the beginning with the businesses you’re working with. Whilst it’s fine for them to mention that they have certain solutions available, your staff shouldn’t feel like they’re sitting through a sales pitch. The focus should be on providing useful information. Savvy business owners will know that this can organically lead to potentially lucrative relationships, but they won’t have to force it.

Keep your eye on the bigger picture

Running this type of initiative can be a great kick-start if you’re looking to put health and well-being on the agenda. Remember though that it isn’t a solution in its own right, and it isn’t a band-aid. For the best results, think about your wider policies and procedures, and the overall workplace culture. It might be the case that there are big issues at play that you need to tackle, such as a trend amongst your managers for requiring staff to work long shifts without a break away from their desks. You can’t fix everything at once, but you do need to take a holistic approach.

Partnering with local businesses can be a win-win solution when it comes to promoting well-being, and as you can see, it’s something that’s manageable for organisations of any size.

Is this something that you’re interested to pursue? And when will you be taking action?

    my followers! Outstanding bkog and great design and style.

  40. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  41. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  42. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.

    from their web sites.

    to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,

    side-effects , folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.

  46. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  47. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I believe that you simply can do with a few percent to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

  48. I will гight ɑԝay snatch ƴour rss aѕ I can not

    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!
