Did you know that an average worker spends 90,000 hours at work over his/her lifetime. The line between professional and personal is getting blurred, leaving less time for people to keep track of their health and wellness.
We all say “Health is Wealth”. However, this is the wealth which is not meant to be spent but only to be earned abundantly.
People Matters and ekincare bring to you 'Pledge for Health’, a movement that will bring together industry leaders to advocate on the importance of corporate wellness for employees and businesses and the value these programs will add to the business bottomline.
It is increasingly getting evident that top candidates are really looking for an employer that can offer them something more – that extra 10% that other organizations won’t. For these candidates, an organization that is committed to health and wellbeing and has a structured workplace wellness program in place will always be attractive.
Employee wellbeing is more than just another wellness program — it is a way to improve workforce profitability and drive value for businesses everywhere. Better health naturally leads to improved customer experiences and reduced overtime costs to fill in for unexpected absences, further boosting the bottom-line impact of engaged workers.
In 2020, my focus is to enable and empower employees to connect their passion with purpose and pursue holistic wellness. In all of this, the endeavour is to help strike a balance between work and personal commitments. I would also like to promote the usage of technology, with a mix of gamification and personal touch. This would act as an enabler to manage health, for the individual and the organisation overall.
In 2019, we introduced a mental health program for our team members which offers up to six free counselling sessions to anyone seeking counselling. Our pledge going forward will be to continue to strengthen and populate our wellness landscape with many more offerings so that our team members are more productive as they are able to manage their stress better.
This year, HGS pledges for the employee wellness with 360 degree wellness program, i.e. physical wellness, mental or emotional wellness, financial wellness and social wellness.
Employee wellbeing is more than just a "nice to have" — it is a must for employers that need to remain competitive in today's hot market for talent. Wouldn’t it be great, if businesses deliver awesome values to the world — not at the expense of their people’s wellbeing — but rather, while making them shine. The bottom line will take care of itself when the employees are well & happy. This in essence, is what corporate wellness is about.
