Workplace wellness or corporate wellness is relatively new to the Indian markets; people are not aware of the process, the implications, investments, returns, and value. Most companies believe that organizing health camps is considered as a wellness program in itself.
In the midst of this confusion and lack of awareness, Vitazia Wellness aims to bring to you 5 key principles for workplace wellness. We have thoroughly studied and recognised the issue and the scope before putting it into action! The 5 key points are as followed
- IT CHANGES WITH THE ERGONOMICS AND REQUIREMENT OF THE COMPANY
We can never really have one fixed pattern or process that is valid for all companies. It is of utmost importance that all the factors such as company size, budget, requirements, style of working, type of employees, and so on are taken into consideration before making an ideal plan.
2. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WELLNESS COMMUNICATION
In India, where wellness programs are still new to the market, it is extremely important to explain the employee what they are getting into. A lot of people are worried about the high investment they would have to make, or are in a dilemma whether such wellness program is really needed for them or not. Communication has to be fluid, direct, and comfortable for all employees.
3. MOVING OVER HEALTH CAMPS AND SEMINARS
It is a common practice to have annual health camps that include routine check-ups such as hypertension, sugar, dental health and so on. Seminars on different topics and training sessions are also common these days. While these are important, they don’t really benefit the employee or the company in the long run. We must start to focus on how to make wellness a part of everyone’s lifestyle, teaching people how to maintain a balance in their personal and professional life. It is about educating not only the employee, but also the employer.
4.EQUAL FOCUS ON MENTAL AND PHYSICAL WELLNESS
Due to high stress levels, and poor lifestyle, mental health is hugely affected. And the most dangerous part is that people are not aware about their declining mental health. Wellness should be holistic, and should focus on both, mental and physical health equally.
Let’s be honest, we really cannot recommend a bunch of people to follow the same lifestyle! Hence, a successful corporate wellness program must be made after individual consolation. Vitazia Wellness believes in personalized and customized plan based on the requirement of each individual and member of the program.
