My ultimate goal is to make 9 to 5 the new Happy Hour!
Are you & your corporate team thriving or diving?
Some signs you could do with some wellness in your work place:
There are high rates of sick days
Lunch is regularly eaten at desks
There’s busy but not productive
There is an undertone of stress and anxity
If someone in the office is sick, then everyone gets sick
Coffee cups are mounting very high!
People are tired, forgetful and making simple mistakes
Fresh ideas are replaced with fogginess
There is no health and wellbeing policy
There’s an inability to concentrate
The cost of employee disengagement, stress & burnout is no longer hidden. In Australia alone, the cost of work-related illness is close to $4 Billion! This explains why corporate wellness programs are so important for you!
It’s About Retaining the Best
People are increasingly looking for meaning and purpose in their work. They are less loyal to a single employer; will hold many jobs in their lifetimes; and will seek out work environments and cultures that are supportive, collegial and aligned with their intrinsic values and motivations. Workers want more than a salary!
Are you providing this?
Millennials are motivated by giving back, a civic mindset and social engagement. They prioritise work-life balance.
Meanwhile Baby Boomers are staying in the workforce longer and seeking “encore jobs” that bring them purpose and personal satisfaction, either by volunteering or working for lower pay. The more skilled and desirable a worker is, the more choices they will have in where and how to work.
The degree to which you can offer a wellness-enhancing environment for your team will be key in retaining talent.
Some of the services we can offer so your team is loving life & their workplace!
Workshops or Walk & Talks
We can come to you and run a series of workshops or get out of the office for a Walk & Talk. Some of the topics we cover include:
Stress – making it work for you, not against
Adrenal Burnout – The what, why and how to prevent
How to be more productive, and still have time for YOU!
How to eat for peak performance
Are you a Worrier or Warrior?
How to change behaviours in 7 days
Why do I self-sabotage and how to stop!
How to build a lean mean fighting team
Learn to relax (without the guilt)
The importance of time out
Taking Wellness Leave so you don’t need to take sick leave!
Wellness Leave and time out is definitely more (cost) effective than Sick Leave
Work shops and office initiatives to enhance wellness are great, but why not take your team on a retreat that enhances their wellbeing, while releasing their creative and strategic spirit?
We can create retreats in great locations that are a healthy dose of work & play
These retreats can be for a day, a few days, or whatever you prefer based on your needs and preferences
We work with you to create the perfect retreat that’s both game-changing, life-changing and fun
We offer retreat recommendations for key staff who may be suffering burn-out
We can also advise on specific treatments for each individual that they can do in their lunch break
You can provide your team with one of our DIY Retreats – the preventative version of Sick Leave!
Boosting Your Bottom Line
Nothing says you care about your team’s wellbeing more than a bespoke retreat harnessing their health & motivation.
Employers bear many of the indirect costs associated with chronic disease & ill health. Rather than suffer (on many levels) from an un-well workforce, or the high cost of sick leave, why not be proactive and offer Wellness Leave?
This can be sending staff off to a retreat when they are showing clear signs of stress, so they can restore and rejuvenate before breaking down and burning out. Or giving them a DIY Retreat they can do at home, on holiday, or part of their working week.
Be the hero not the villain!
Integrating wellness into your workplace
Do you have a biscuit tin or a bowl of fruit for your staff? Simple changes can turn your workplace into a thriving place of health and productivity. We can create a simple strategy or a full-blown Wellness strategy for your staff. Some of the things we can offer:
Tips to make your workplace more wellness focused
Organise group exercise sessions onsite or off
Create sporting teams for local corporate comps
Create friendly rivalry to improve consistency
Orgainse walking, running or other recreational clubs
Offer regular yoga classes, spa treatments and healthy lunches
Conduct simple DNA test to determine a long-term, individual wellness plan
Provide a complete wellness strategy that will give you and your team a huge ROI
It’s time to get your workplace well!
The current workplace wellness offering (the world over) is not hitting the mark. The focus is on employer-sponsored health screenings, smoking cessation or weight loss programs. Maybe a gym membership and perks such as free massages or wearable devices.
Most programs are run by human resource departments to help employees “fix” existing problems such as poor health, unhealthy habits and stress.
You have the opportunity to change this for your team and create the ‘Best of Breed’ Workplace Wellness concept. Be proactive, not simply reactive.
After all, a company is only as good as its people.
