Employee wellness is something that rises in popularity every now and then. Since the world has been turned upside down, and your workers have had to learn how to work from home either in isolation or next to kids doing online school, the level of mental and emotional stress has skyrocketed.
Any change is hard but what your team is experiencing is unprecedented change to every part of their schedule and routine. Talk to a few people and you’ll quickly learn this is taking a toll on mental and physical health. The “canary in the coalmine” has been singing loud and clear since March. What can you do about it to help your team survive, and have a solid foundation to thrive? Seriously consider real employee wellness.
There are plenty of wellness consultants, and sessions at HR conferences on what makes a good wellness program. There are even very high-tech wellness tools (like fitbit) that encourage wellness.
But it is a special company that intentionally embeds wellness into the everyday makeup of a company… into the culture and and various meetings, to help your employees know that wellness is a real corporate concern.
And it should be. Wellness issues account for billions of dollars of lost productivity. When your employees call in sick and miss work, there are real costs. When they are dealing with emotional and mental health issues, their work (and future employment) is impacted. Neglecting employee wellness can be extremely harmful to individuals, teams, and the entire organization.
At Snowfly we have the perfect complement to whatever wellness program you have in place. Whether it is a weight loss program, a smoking cessation program, blood pressure, nutrition, walking goals, or medical appointments (dental visits, anyone?) our incentives and reward system is suited to help keep wellness a priority for each person and for managers.
Imagine how your team would feel if, instead of just saying, “Wellness is important! Do healthy things!” you actually made it really easy to track and reward (incentivize!) wellness activities!
This is where Snowfly shines. We can create dashboards and leaderboards to help people know where they are at individually and compared to others. Each person can earn badges to feel a sense of accomplishment on their path to wellness, as well as receive tangible rewards (from company swag to money on a rechargeable, branded debit card).
This is the core of Snowfly Incentives. Want to learn more? We’d love to talk…
