Wellness is a multidimensional state of being that describes the process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more positive existence. True wellness is a full integration of all of the following states of wellness:
Each one of these dimensions interacts in a way that influences our own quality of life.
Why Wellness at Work?
You may wonder why an employer would care about the amount of physical activity that an employee gets? The reasons are simple, logical and well supported by research. Physically active employees are less likely to be overweight, have fewer chronic health conditions, have lower levels of stress, miss fewer days of work and are more productive than their sedentary co-workers. By helping employees become more physically active a corporation can lower health care costs, decrease sick days and increase productivity.
Corporate cultures that are wellness-based have high-performing workplaces with engaged, thriving employees. In an April 2013 Gallup Business Journal article, a Gallup research study indicated that thriving employees who enjoy high levels of wellbeing are “agile and resistant;” “work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company;” and “drive innovation and move the organization forward.”
The earlier-mentioned 2013 Gallup study concluded that “lost workdays come with a heavy price tag”: the average per-person cost of absenteeism with engaged, thriving employees due to participating in wellness programs was 64% less than with employees who were not. With such significant cost disparities in workforce productivity, those companies taking an active role in employee health and wellbeing have a distinct competitive advantage.
Companies receive many benefits after implementing a work site wellness program in addition to reducing costs. They include increases in employee morale, improved employee health, reduction in workers compensation claims, reductions in absenteeism, and increases in productivity.
