Wellness at Work Programs
from Quelle Health
Company engagement skyrockets when people feel well. We know that mental clarity and stability is directly tied to physical health. We also know that chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia and obesity are the fastest growing dis-eases today and impact every workplace culture. Employees are a company’s greatest asset. Improving and maintaining their health and wellness with comprehensive and custom health solutions is vital, as healthier people produce stronger results, and are ultimately more engaged and effective in the workplace.
Because of the high-tech, high-stress contemporary corporate workplace, today’s professionals are in more need of health and wellness than ever before.
A happier, healthier, more balanced employee yields more productivity, increased focus, and enhanced creativity that is invaluable in a competitive marketplace.
According to a recent study on work site health programs, corporations realized $3-6 in savings for every $1 invested in wellness programs. The same study showed more than a 25% average reduction in health-care costs for well-designed programs. (American Journal of Health Promotion)
The benefits of offering and promoting corporate employee health & wellness programs in the workplace:
- Reduced Absenteeism
- Increased Productivity
- Increased Job and Employee Satisfaction
- Improved Employee Retention
- Enhanced Office Community
- Decreased Costs*
According the Harvard Business Review, every dollar invested in employee wellness programs can yield up to $6 in health care savings. That goes right to your company’s bottom line!
Wellness at Work Programs
As your Wellness at Work Expert, I partner with your HR team to bring Nutrition and Wellness knowledge into your workplace, as a personal health coach to you and your employees.
I offer on-site corporate wellness solutions to promote employee wellness & lower healthcare costs, which includes the following:
Wellness at Work: Lunch & Learn
Providing education to employees specifically on how to improve eating habits, reduce stress, and increase healthy lifestyle activities such as meal preparation and exercise. These workshops will be in person or virtual. Example workshop topic and descriptions below.
We work with human resources and the wellness council to make recommendations around best practices for a healthy company culture.
Kate will assess the vending machines, catering, breakrooms, food service options and personal workspaces. Think of it like a kitchen “audit” for your company.
This is a chance for employees to have fun while creating healthier habits. Quelle Health creates a personalized challenge based on the interests of the employees. Challenges can be as short as a week or as long as four weeks based on the reward system and interest level of everyone involved.
Monthly Wellness Group
This is a monthly meeting where employees come together for additional support from me and other coworkers. These meetings are helpful with weight loss, creating a healthier relationship with food, and building an office culture of holistic health. Often, coworkers find a colleague to take walks with and help support them on their journey.
Taking time during the day to disconnect is one of the most beneficial acts that an employee can do to improve energy, focus and productivity at work. I will conduct 15 minute guided meditation sessions in the span of two hours. I will incorporate deep breathing exercises and meditations that help relax the body and mind so they can refocus once they are back at their desk.
