A Healthier Workplace
A Healthier Workplace
What do you need in order to be productive? An organized work-space, maybe? A playlist of your favorite songs? A comfortable chair? Productivity is unique to all of us, simply because all of us are productive in different ways.
For example, we all know that one coworker whose work-space is an absolute mess, as if organization and order were diseases he’d cured, and yet he still somehow manages to be productive–as if he prospers in chaos. That’s fine, of course, as long as we get the job done. However, because each of us is productive in a different way, it can be uniquely difficult to try increasing productivity. What one change can help everyone and hurt no one? Well, one big aspect of productivity that we all share is workplace health–and protecting it is crucial.
We’ve all heard the saying without your health you don’t have anything, and this is especially true in the workplace. Healthy employees are productive employees. Promoting health and providing incentives for good lifestyle habits makes workers smarter, healthier, and more self-assured–but how can you put this into play in your company? There are many ways to encourage and protect workplace health; some companies go for wellness programs, others use incentives, and still others work with employees to determine the best programs and plans. The key is determining which aspects of a healthy workplace are most important, and promoting those aspects in ways that work for you and your employees.
